ESBN: I01-700E-9U12-98G4


Industrial electrical training video course, 10 DVDs about electrical control with video reference handbook, instructor's guide, answer key, master set of exams and course completion certificate. We cover the most critical and fundamental skills that your maintenance department needs to know. Electrical Control Circuits, Motor Controls, and PLCs. This 10 DVD set covers automation control with sensors and electrical components and PLC DVDs. Includes DC and AC motor controller, 3 phase transformer and many more industrial motor, power and automation control training modules.


Great for training maintenance and industrial engineers.


Get everyone up to speed on electrical maintenance troubleshooting. We show how these devices work, how they are wired, and how to troubleshoot them. This program also provides the first step in learning electrical diagrams, so it is great for beginners and cross training mechanics. The complete series provides approximately 36 hours of instructional material and the topics covered are equivalent to a multi-week course. 


It's even easy to train multiple people—simply order additional student kits.


The Industrial Electrical Training Series Includes:

  • Ten Industrial Electrical Training Videos - the first electrical training video give your employees a solid understanding of the basics of power generation and distribution. Cut your power bills and extend the life of your equipment. The next two electrical training videos cover the most common switches, timers, and control devices found in plants; followed by two more DVDs covering electrical diagrams. The next four electrical training video DVDs cover motor control extensively, including both DC and AC motor control protections, maintenance and troubleshooting. The last DVD in this library covers understanding & applying PLCs in electrical controls.
