Nowy / Nowość 

The fundamentals of electric motor controllers
With the shift toward industrial electrification, control systems for electric motors are vital to the performance and protection of factory equipment. These systems range from the simple starting and stopping of electric motors to directing energy flows in an automated factory.

Many types of technical workers, primarily industrial electricians, industrial maintenance technicians, and mechatronics technicians, need to understand, install, maintain, and troubleshoot control circuits and their main controllers such as manual starters, automatic starters, reversing starters, reduced voltage starters.

The equipment set Basic Motor Control Technology builds knowledge and skills in the fundamentals of industrial electric motor controllers. The curriculum is specially designed to develop soft skills in addition to technical skills. Equipment allows teachers to insert various faults to develop troubleshooting skills – a must for a good preparation for the workplace.

The course first familiarizes students with the operation of individual components, then provides hands-on application opportunities to use them in realistic, industrial motor control circuits. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to install, commission and troubleshoot the most common electric motor controllers using contactors and relays.


  • Innovative design for power switchgear from SIEMENS with safe and faultable connection boxes
  • Faultable components to develop troubleshooting skills
  • Curriculum with high focus on soft skills development along with technical skills  
  • Realistic training using industrial-grade equipment
  • Safe grounding method PE+

This learning system is also available as a portable version in a rugged suitcase: TP 1221-P Basic Motor Control Technology (Portable Edition)
