Introduction to Digital Technology

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 48170 trainer introduces students to the building blocks of digital circuits. They learn about digital logic and how digital circuits work in many systems such as digital displays and alarm systems. The outstanding design challenge      experiments will require students to apply acquired    knowledge and skills to problem-solving exercises.

The computer software is filled with animations that show real-life applications. Other software features include     immediate feedback on quiz questions, and a password-protected grade book.

 

 

 

Exploring Electrical Circuits

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 48130 trainer exposes students to electrical circuits they encounter in everyday life and teaches the principles by which they function. Through dynamic and engaging lab exercises, students build circuits using the following    modules: buzzer, electromagnet, lamp, motor,             photoelectric control, relay, thermostat, transformer, switches and power supply.

The computer software is filled with animations that show real-life applications. Other software features include   immediate feedback on quiz questions, and a password-protected grade book.

 

Introduction to Electronic Systems

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 48140 trainer introduces students to a variety of  electronic circuits from simple lighting to automated    industrial systems and provides students with a basic    understanding of electronic systems. The activities are informative and captivating. Students build circuits that simulate electronic systems such as a public address     system, an electronic motor speed control, an elevator control system, and a railroad warning light.

The computer software is filled with animations that show real-life applications. Other software features include  immediate feedback on quiz questions, and a password-protected grade book.
