CL-100 Rotary Machines Trainer - 1/3hp (250W) - 60Hz + Add to wishlist


The ConsuLab 1/3hp-250W rotary machines trainer is intended as a teaching aid for a course on AC/DC motors and generators. The Consulab modular units are portable and totally enclosed. Work space required during experiments is minimized since the modules can be stacked vertically. All interconnection panels are transparent so the components are in view at all times. Schematic diagrams and specifications are silk screened onto the back of the front panel of each unit. Interconnections between components are made with piggy back jumper leads and connections are mode through color coded safety socket. When the experiment is in progress, the rotary machines are mounted on a rigid base and assembled with a rubber coupling, thereby eliminating ay possible slippage. The ConsuLab trainer is complete with a laboratory manual (on CD-ROM) which contains details of 54 practical exercises. All parts used in this set of practical exercises are compatible with all other 1/3hp units produced by ConsuLab, so any program of interest can be covered, such as AC/DC control equipment, transformer, and many more. Requires a 120V 60Hz circuit.

I got the half car out of the crate and working yesterday and today I had my Level 3 Electronic Climate Control diagnostics lab using it. This teaching aid is great! The workmanship and design is excellent and it is just perfect for the Level 3 curriculum, including the upcoming changes. We were fortunate that the IPro scan tool we received from the Uniselect donation communicates quite well with the Audi CAN bus system. The Audi also has the electronically controlled, clutchless compressor which is covered in our theory classes so it's a good reinforcement to be able to see it in action, manipulate it and communicate with it. I am very pleased with the quality and applicability of our ConsuLab products (including the engine/AC bench we got recently). They allow me to teach up to 8 students in great detail, whereas only one or two at a time can be involved in a full car. I am looking forward to the imminent arrival of our AC board. Thanks for your excellent insight of design and quality of manufacturing.
