Course description

Electric Motors and Motor Control Circuits - 2 days training course

While motor failure may appear to be a common problem, it is more likely that the real cause is a wrong application or control circuit issue. Failure of the motor can be just a symptom of perhaps an even more serious problem that lies ahead. This electrical course on Electric Motors and Motor Control Circuits helps maintenance workers identify what the real issue is when a motor burns out and how to prevent it from happening again.
