One in a comprehensive series of stand-alone, motor-related training aids offering an introduction to a range of common industrial motor types used in industry. This unique training aid introduces the student to the terminology, operating characteristics, wiring, and troubleshooting of PSC motors used in industry and commercially.

The assembly includes a welded tubular-aluminum mounting baseplate, steel control box support structure, and a steel control and wiring enclosure. All motor wiring and troubleshooting is accomplished through banana jack receptacles on the control enclosure’s front panel face.

An appropriate voltmeter and ammeter is provided on-board. Four instructor fault insertion switches are provided at the rear of the control module enclosure, under a tamper-proof cover. An optional motor loading module or prony brake attaches to the motor unit for testing purposes, using a flexible coupling which is provided.
Welded 1/8"-wall, tubular aluminum baseplate assembly allowing for stand-alone tabletop use.
Provision for direct mounting of upper frame assembly and integration on related workstation, and integration bench products.
T-slotted aluminum motor and accessory mounting rails. (Allows for attachment of modular guard, and connection to optional adjacent accessories and other training aids)
Commercial-duty 56Z frame PSC motor, with connection teather.
Master circuit breaker with simulated lock-out / tag-out capability.
Silk-screened 1/8" aluminum front panel face with identification of line and motor lead numbers.
16-gauge, formed-steel and powder-coated support structure and electrical enclosure.
Color-coded banana-jack patch cord receptacles.
On-board analog voltmeter and ammeter.
Permanent internal tamper-proof grounding of all elements for safety.
Enclosure front cover safety interlock (kill) switch.
Four instructor fault insertion switches (on rear of control enclosure).
Large system emergency stop switch.
Keyed instructor power switch (on rear of control enclosure).
Large pilot light and on-board manual mototstarting switch.
Use of UL and CE certified electrical components throughout.
Packaging for shipment via motor freight.
