This series of motor trainers represents a cross section of common industrial motors. Each motor module includes a welded aluminum mounting baseplate, aluminum control box support structure, and a steel control enclosure. All motor wiring is accomplished through banana jack receptacles on the control enclosure’s front panel face. Each unit comes equipped with an appropriate voltmeter and ammeter. Four instructor fault insertion switches are provided on each motor module. An optional motor loading module attaches to each motor unit using a flexible coupling provided with the loading module.
