Motor controls and drives

Electric motors that drive industrial machines need to be started, stopped, protected, and controlled for speed in various ways, depending on the application and the motors used. Our motor controls and drives training systems provide unrivaled training in these technologies.

Featured learning solutions:


Industrial Controls Training Systems

  • Designed to teach the theory and techniques of electric motor controllers
  • Allows students to select and mount control devices to form typical control circuits, and to troubleshoot them once a fault is inserted
  • Four basic systems: Basic Controls, Programmable Logic Controller, Motor Drives, and Sensors
  • Modular systems offer unique controls training possibilities and include insertable faults
