Electric Motors Lab
The Electric Motor lab contains multiple stations to train students on various control techniques (such as speed control) commonly used with multiple types of electric motors. The lab covers a range of different motors, which each provide for a particular use case such as precise motions, rapid start/stops, high torque, etc. The types of motors in the lab include AC, DC, dual voltage repulsion, 3-phase, synchronous, and more. This lab works closely in conjunction with the PLC Lab due to the high integration of electric motors with PLC units found in many factory settings.
