Amatrol’s Portable AC Motor Drive Learning System (990-DRV1) can be used in any industry where rapid motor acceleration or deceleration are required, such as packaging, textiles, and paper, to name a few. This system features industry-standard components like a Rockwell PowerFlex 4 variable frequency AC drive and a 3-phase AC motor used to teach the fundamentals of configuring and operating an AC drive. The 990-DRV1 also includes onboard analog and discrete input devices that enable the learners to operate the drive in many different program applications. Optional electronic fault insertion can also be added to the 990-DRV1 to teach valuable hands-on troubleshooting skills.
The 990-DRV1 is a portable solution when training space is limited but comprehensive knowledge and skill building cannot be sacrificed! This portable system can be placed on a conference room table, shop floor desk, or practically anywhere due to its small footprint. Its compact size and durable case also provide for safe storage when available training space must be used to teach other topics.
Standard Industry Components
Variable frequency AC drives are used throughout industry to control the voltage and frequency supplied to a motor to match its speed to the application saving energy and reducing cost. Obtaining the skills necessary to program and operate these devices requires hands-on training with the actual components used in industry. The 990-DRV1 uses a Rockwell Powerflex 4 variable frequency AC drive and a 3-phase motor in addition to a digital tachometer to monitor output and a digital voltmeter to monitor analog input to the motor. The system also features a lockout/tagout system to teach vital safety skills when working with AC motors.
3-Phase Motor Training with 1-Phase Power Requirement
Many training areas are not equipped with 3-phase power or do not have sufficient 3-phase outlets to set up a training class. The 990-DRV1 learning system runs on single phase power to add to the convenience and range of locations where it can be used. Requiring only single phase power, this portable system can be located almost anywhere!
Highly Engaging Interactive Multimedia
Beginning at the foundation of AC Electronic Drives knowledge, the 990-DRV1’s extensive multimedia curriculum builds off of the basics to advance to fully explain the operation, installation, and performance analysis of AC motors. As the learner completes each new topic, they’ll use this theoretical knowledge to complete hands-on skills like operate a motor using the program keypad of a variable frequency AC drive. Other major topic areas covered in the curriculum include jogging control and torque control, ramping commands, DC injection braking, and acceleration methods.
The 990-DRV1: Mobile, Durable, Compact Learning System
Set within a durable ABS plastic case, the 990-DRV1 features wheels and a handle to create a mobile training platform that can be used to deliver training where needed and that’s easy to store and transport. The cover is quickly removed to enable the case to sit firmly upright on a table surface for any learner to use.
