Learning Electrical Troubleshooting:

The TSTrainer electrical troubleshooting course is great for individuals just starting out wanting to learn on their own. The first training module is an introduction to electrical troubleshooting with text and audio narration. The included 32 page electrical troubleshooting pdf Lab manual also provides more introduction to Troubleshooting Control Circuits. It also includes instructions on how to use the TSTrainer. The Lab manual can be access via the software and you can also optionally print it out for a hard copy. While its intent is for instructors to use as hand outs to students, there is nothing stopping the individual user license owner from using it for extra study material.



The troubleshooting trainer is a highly interactive multimedia training application that is designed to assist technicians, electricians, apprentices and other students in the development of systematic troubleshooting skills. The emphasis of the training is not on shot-gun type troubleshooting, but on root cause analysis. Each electrical problem is accompanied by a ladder diagram examples and explanation of proper circuit operation. The user will be able to use a multimeter to take measurement of circuit potential. Also available is the ability to power down circuit and lock out-tag out circuit breaker when repairing. Although the troubleshooting problems within this application will be limited to troubleshooting live circuits only.



Learning PLC Troubleshooting:

Each PLC troubleshooting problem is accompanied by a ladder logic program and explanation of proper circuit operation. On one or more of the PLC troubleshooting exercises, user may not be able to go online with the PLC as the goal of that particular exercise is to teach/test the ability to troubleshoot without access to ladder logic program. Such is the real world sometimes. Additional features of the PLC troubleshooting faults are ability to open some of solenoid wiring junction box to test at that point with virtual VOM (Volt Ohm Meter). Also PLC is able to be switched from run mode to halt.  Also a log file of user's successes or failures is built into this application for evaluation. Upon successful completion of all of the electrical troubleshooting faults and PLC troubleshooting faults, user will be able to print a certificate of completion.



Note: Before answering electrical troubleshooting fault question, be sure to Lock Out - Tag Out! So you are ready to fix electrical problems. You do not want to lose points for electric repair safety!
