Advanced troubleshooting of an industrial control system with this (TIC) Troubleshooting Simulator.
|Advanced Troubleshooting Industrial Controls (TIC) Training Software|
(WIN 10, 7&8 - 32&64bit compatible!)
If you enjoyed and gained great learning value from the V4 Electrical troubleshooting training software series, you are now ready for the Fluid Processing System in the Simutech Multimedia's Troubleshooting Industrial Controls Simulation, based on real industrial process systems. This industrial process systems training simulation software uses a fully interactive simulated industrial fluid systems and process control systems to train personnel how to troubleshoot both electrical and mechanical faults in industrial fluid systems. (Process simulates actual industrial technology.)
This simulation models fluid processing systems similar to systems found in various industrial applications. This system consists of a variety of components including a Pump, Agitator, Heaters, Motors, Transformers, Contactors, and Overloads.
The process control portion of the system consists of a variety of components typically found in industrial control systems such as: Temperature, Float, & Selector Switches, Relays, Timers, Pushbuttons, Solenoid Valves, Fuses, and Indicators.
The 51 built in faults to solve, simulate both electrical and mechanical failures. Users can interact with the simulation just like a real system. Users can operate the system remotely or locally. They can take voltage, resistance and current measurements with a multi-meter, inspect, repair and replace components, disconnect and ring out wires.

The industrial process systems simulations are realistic and accurate. They have many features that make for an excellent tool to develop and improve troubleshooting skills.
|This simulations are lifelike, having the tools normally used to troubleshoot equipment such as this. Taking meter readings, removing wires, inspecting and replacing components are all standard features.|
|The industrial fluid systems and industrial controls are modeled after real equipment. The behavior of the industrial fluid systems and industrial control components are accurate under normal and faulty conditions and even when wires are disconnected.|
|The industrial controls equipment models are accurate. The readings taken in the simulation are virtually the same as readings taken on real equipment.|
This simulation contains many types of defects designed to give the user practice on a wide range of potential problems. Typical types of failures are:
- Opens in components or wiring
- Shorts in components or wiring
- Defects in component mechanisms
- Overloaded and defective 3 phase motors and protective equipment
- Opens and shorts in 3 phase circuits
- Defective mechanical components
Faults are organized by difficulty level (Basic, Intermediate and Advanced). Each level has three types of faults: Guided, Practice, and Skill Test.
Guided and Practice faults provide techniques, tips and a place to practice your troubleshooting skills. Skill Test faults evaluate your results and provide feedback.
Monitoring and Feedback
As faults are attempted, the program monitors each step from a process safety perspective. Unsafe steps that could cause personal injury, break a process safety rule, or break safe work practices, cause feedback to be provided in the form of an error message. The testing procedures used are also monitored, providing tips or warnings as necessary.
|Troubleshooting Skill Assessment Results are evaluated against several criteria.||Training Assessment Summary Screen when program is complete. Notice the bonus tab which also becomes available.|
The program evaluates a userís troubleshooting skill on each fault attempt as well as provides an Overall Program Summary Evaluation.
Each attempt to solve and repair a fault is evaluated based on standard set of criteria.
Successful Fault Completion Criteria:
- Fault must be correctly repaired
- No safety errors occurred
- No components unnecessarily replaced
- Fault repaired within time allowed
- Fault repaired within allowed troubleshooting process rating
If the criteria are not met, the fault is marked incomplete and the fault will have to be attempted again. The reasons for failure will be displayed.
If the criteria are met, the fault is marked complete and a rating is shown for the attempt. The Skill Rating takes into account the results of the current attempt plus the results of any previous attempt.
When completed, the program summarizes all the userís results and provides an overall summary of their results.
The Skill Rating takes into account the difficulty of each fault completed. The more difficult a fault the more it impacts the Skill Rating.
Also shown in this summary is a list of the major errors. This information is important in determining areas for improvement.
Included Transit Edition Features:
Cloud storage of user progress
Use on multiple computers by a single user
Free support and upgrades
When the cloud access expires, the user can continue to use the software on the PC it was installed on. However all cloud benefit cease (support, upgrades, download access and user progress tracking online).
