A portable, benchtop training system allowing for convenient training in AC drive programming, drive system troubleshooting and control wiring.

All I/O and control wiring capabilities of the Allen-Bradley, PowerFlex 40 drive are accessed using banana jack connections on the front panel face. Additionally, eight fault switches are provided on the back of the electrical enclosure allowing for drive, motor and control wiring troubleshooting. A digital tachometer is provided.

The product can be easily integrated with mechanical systems on the related DAC bench products, as well as with products relating to PLCs, sensors and piloting switches.

Whether used as a stand-alone training device or in combination with other automation-related training products, this device will help make training in this fundamental technology more informative and productive.
