Electric motors and controls training certificate course software.


This electric motor control circuit training software is quite detailed. Starting off with wiring diagrams vs. ladder diagrams and motor control theory, covering the entire AC motor control system. Solenoids, timers, sensors, relays, troubleshooting, even an introduction to PLCs is included. Also, the PDF Laboratory Manual comes full of proven wiring assignments that will help to build competencies. [Video below shows Electrical Motor Controls Training software in use.]

ac motor speed control circuit


From motor controls basics to AC motor speed control circuits, you will find colorful, engaging interactive electric motor and controls training. 

The electric motor diagram is better understood as software relates electric motor diagram to its physical parts and wiring out in the real world.

As shown in Control circuit basics section screen shot, electrical circuit diagrams are covered with animations of real life electric control parts, relating them to their respective  electrical symbol on electric control circuit diagrams. Brings a whole new level to learning and understanding electrical control circuit diagrams.

Make electric motors theory easier to understand and retain longer using interactive animations in this course. Pictured below is a screen shot of the AC electric motors interactive demonstrations; as an example. A greater understanding of AC electric motor control better once you fully understand the theory of each electric motor type. A free online demo of this course is at free online electric motors and controls training. (note only the free demo is browser dependant, the purchased software is standalone, compatible with all xp-win10 pcs.)
