3-Phase, Squirrel Cage Rotor, AC Motor Training System

Model: 412-000

DAC Worldwide’s Three-Phase, Squirrel Cage Rotor, AC Motor Training System (412-000) provides a starting point for understanding a common, widely-used industrial induction motor. These self-starting, 56 frame, simply constructed motors are used in applications like generators or where low starting torque is required. The main feature of a squirrel cage induction motor is the squirrel cage rotor, which is a rotating steel cylinder within the motor that is embedded with copper or aluminum conductors. When rotating and connected to an alternating current, it produces a magnetic field, which when interacting with the stator creates torque on the rotor.

Learners can use this hands-on squirrel cage induction motor training device to practice motor wiring by using banana jack receptacles on the control enclosure’s front panel face, study the motor’s construction, practice industrial motor maintenance skills by using fault insertion switches for hands-on troubleshooting training, and LOTO training due to the system’s master circuit breaker with lock-out/tag-out capability. This system also offers an optional motor loading module that attaches using a flexible coupling for more realistic industrial motor training.

This heavy-duty industrial motor training system includes a welded aluminum mounting baseplate, aluminum control box support structure, and steel control enclosure. It also includes a voltmeter and ammeter for practicing motor measurement skills.
