DC and AC Power Circuits Training System

8010-1

Description

The DC and AC Power Circuits Training System combines a modular design approach with computer-based data acquisition and control to introduce students to the fundamentals of electricity, such as direct current (dc), alternating current (ac), voltage, resistance, and Ohm's Law. The training system is designed to operate at a low voltage to ensure the safety of students beginning their training in electric power technology.

Features & Benefits

  • The training system teaches simply and effectively the basic principles of electrical power for both direct current (dc) and alternating current (ac).
  • The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
  • The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
  • All workstations, modules, and components are very sturdy to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
  • The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
  • All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
  • All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
  • The training system includes two highly versatile USB peripherals:
    • Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. This module is used as a dc and ac power source.
    • Data Acquisition and Control Interface, Model 9063. This module gives access to a large variety of computer-based measuring instruments via the LVDAC-EMS software.
  • Software upgrades for LVDAC-EMS and firmware upgrades for the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply and Data Acquisition and Control Interface are available for download free of charge on the Festo Didactic website.
