A Comprehensive Maintenance Training System for Industrial Pneumatics

The Explorer I Industrial Pneumatic Training System provides the components and hands-on training required to effectively troubleshoot and repair pneumatic systems used in modern industry. It includes a user manual and instructor's guide which focus on the background, applications and maintenance of pneumatic equipment.

The curriculum begins with the fundamentals of pneumatics, which can be used as either an introduction to the technology or as a review of key principles. Additional sections focus on different types of valves, cylinders and pneumatic devices like vacuum Venturi generators, air motors and rotary actuators.

A complete industrial component panel with eye level gauges is mounted on a slanted stainless steel surface for easy access when conducting experiments. A lockable storage area behind the panel provides space for manuals and for additional components. Removable components on the panel and specialty components from TII that expand the capabilities of the system can be mounted on the T-slot surface TII front of the panel. Mounting hardware is included.

Explorer I can be mounted on a mobile training bench that has cabinet space for a compressor and allows the system to be wheeled between classrooms. The portability and rugged design of the training system allow it to meet demanding training schedules.

The Explorer I is one of four building blocks in the advanced Explorer Series of technology systems. The other advanced modules address the principles and applications of industrial hydraulics, electromechanics and programmable logic controllers. They are designed to interface with the Explorer I, and can be brought together using mobile benches available from TII. A major advantage of the TII system over traditional training programs is that each segment can also be operated separately, giving trainees more space and instructors greater flexibility.

For Industrial, Commercial & Vocational Electrical Training

Tll Technical Education Systems' Kempf Troubleshooting Training Center (KTS-100) is a complete program of hardware and instructional materials for learning how to troubleshoot modern industrial/commercial motor and relay control systems. Designed as a self-paced, individualized learning program requiring only nominal facilitation, the Training System presents in-depth explanations of how motor control circuits operate and provides practical hands-on experience for wiring, operating, and troubleshooting these circuits. For testing comprehension, this system uses forty fault switches to provide important proficiency development exercises for high skill training.

The new advanced Troubleshooting Training Center provides hands-on applications for all industrial motor control circuits. The training system uses a basic approach needed for novices, a more thorough approach for apprentices, and a refresher for more experienced electricians.

Troubleshooting concepts are developed quickly and advanced lessons are designed to challenge the skill of the most experienced electricians.

Every minute of production downtime is lost profit. To make a significant reduction in downtime, electricians must have a high degree of skill in locating control circuits-faults rapidly.

Stacking type patch cords are used to rapidly interconnect heavy duty panel components into a variety of motor control circuits. Trainees construct circuits by following a wiring list that supplies color of patchcord to be used and jack numbers to be connected.

Wiring, operation, and faults in these circuits are identical to circuits used in industrial plants.

Applications include industrial plants for troubleshooting production equipment; commercial buildings for troubleshooting heating, air conditioning and water systems; and, vocational and technical education using industry oriented programs which bring relevancy to training, improving employment opportunities.

EP-250ELECTRO-PNEUMATICS

A Comprehensive Training System For
Electronic Control of Pneumatic Technology

The EP-250 Electro-Pneumatic Training System is designed for hands-on study of electrical/electronic control of pneumatic components in a user-friendly application-oriented setting. It includes a student manual and instructor’s guide, which focus on the background, use and application of electronic control to pneumatic technology.

Electronic control is done through use of a Programmable “Smart Relay” Micro Controller with system components and hardware mounted in a configuration to replicate manufacturing operations.

Like a PLC, the “Smart Relay” allows the user to program and control up to eight inputs and four outputs simultaneously. However, unlike a PLC, the simplified logic programming software that is included with the “Smart Relay” requires no previous PLC programming knowledge. This enables the student to focus his/her efforts on controlling the pneumatic elements and applications without having to study PLC programming first.

The EP-250 is a stand-alone system mounted upright on a metal frame with stainless steel front panel, built-in 24 VDC power supply and universal banana jack I/O sockets for convenient interfacing with TII’s Explorer I Industrial Pneumatic or other training systems. All components are silkscreened for easy identification.

By combining the Programmable Controller with the easy-to-use I/O interfacing and the included pneumatic valves, actuators, switches and sensors, true electrical control and logic of pneumatic technology in a replicated manufacturing press/stamping and vise/clamping environment can be achieved.

With the EP-250’s flexible system design, interfacing to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and other external devices whether as part of an FMS system or stand-alone operation on a table or bench is as easy

as “Plug and Play

The EM-600 Series Advanced Electronic Sensors Training System is designed for hands-on study of industrial sensor technology and control in a user-friendly application-oriented setting.

Electronic control is done through use of a Programmable “Smart Relay” Controller with system components and hardware mounted in a configuration to replicate manufacturing operations.

Like a PLC, the “Smart Relay” allows the user to program and control up to eight inputs and four outputs simultaneously. However, unlike a PLC, the simplified logic programming software that is included with the “Smart Relay” requires no previous PLC programming knowledge. This enables the student to focus his/her efforts on controlling the various sensors and applications without having to study PLC programming first.

Users select from a variety of sensor categories and application types to configure the EM-600 Series Training System specific to their needs. Major sensor categories include photoelectric, proximity, specialty, and transducer. Basic application types include conveyor, linear slide, drill press, stamp/ clamp operation, and custom.
