Electrical engineering/Electronics training packages – Modern and exciting training
Everything from a single source – Equipment for electrical engineering laboratories Regardless of the control and drive technology used, electrical engineering always plays a role.

No matter what your training focuses on, electrical engineering and electronics are part of the basic knowledge for all areas of production, process and automation technology.

With learning systems from Festo Didactic, learning laboratories – be they modular, customised or complete – can be equipped for any application and budget, whether for industry or trades, for teaching basic principles, for building systems or control or drive technology.

Rapid transfer Whether in initial professional training or more advanced courses: It is essential to be able to recall what has been learned and apply it immediately. This is easier to do if the worlds of learning and work are as similar as possible. That is why the training packages for electrical engineering only contain industrial components, and the exercises in the course documents come from a typical, professional environment.

Maximum compatibility Electrical engineering and electronics are fundamental components of automation. These training packages can therefore be used where mechatronics or bus technology are involved.

  • 4 mm safety sockets and SysLink guarantee "electrical compatibility"
  • A new standard coupling ensures that motors and driven elements are universally compatible
  • H-rails and housing dimensions allow components from other manufacturers to be used

Useful modularity The training packages for electrical engineering and electronics are expandable. For example, they begin with electrical protective measures and a domestic connection. Later, they add the starter kit for sub-distribution and the topic of building automation. This modularity has a further benefit: each training device is smaller, more portable and can be housed in a cabinet more easily.

Safe connection technology When it comes to dealing with electricity, safety and protective measures are a key focus. Of course, all of our electrical connections are fitted with safety sockets or plugs.

  • The plug-in modules of the equipment set for the basic principles of electrical engineering/electronics
  • Power supply units and power supplies
  • Back plates and EduTrainer®

Combination with self-study Education in schools, companies or university cannot be successful without a willingness to do self-study. That is why the appropriate WBTs are available for all topics. Our range of digital training programs provides exciting learning scenarios and supplements the classroom-based parts of a course. The WBTs are particularly well suited for teaching the basic principles and thus provide the optimum supplement to practical experiments.

Mobile solution Anyone who wants to design varied teaching and personal learning concepts requires flexible and modular training systems. That is why most of the equipment sets from Festo Didactic are compatible with the practical and mobile Systainers. This makes storage and transportation easier and supports flexible working.

Equipment set TP 1111: Power supply systems and protective measures

Equipment set TP 1111: Power supply systems and protective measures

Fundamentals of electrical protective measures

Protecting people plays an important role when using electrical energy, as it is not visible and is recognisable only by its effects. Possible risks must therefore be minimised through suitable safety measures.

Examples provide an introduction to the problems associated with electrical safety measures. Current conditions are examined and the risks resulting from the relevant situation are demonstrated by means of measurements. The subsequent analysis and interpretation of the measurement results show the relationships and identify measures

Equipment set TP 1110: Electrical safety measures for metalworking occupations

Sensitising people to hazards: The electrical safety measures for metalworking occupations

The aim of protective measures is to protect persons and machines from harm.

Special rules must be followed when dealing with electrical energy, because electrical energy is recognisable only by its effects.                                                                                                                                          

This training package provides an introduction to the topic of electrical protective measures. It explains where and why dangers arise even in a mechanic's range of activities and how they can be avoided. The training package uses numerous examples to illustrate the particular issues of dangers due to electrical energy and explains the necessary protective measures. The exercises require the current conditions to be examined and the dangers resulting from the particular situation to be demonstrated by means of concrete measurements. The subsequent analysis and interpretation of the measurement results show the relationships and justify the protective measures taken.
