EloTrain (2- and 4-mm system)

EloTrain (2- and 4-mm system)

The EloTrain 2-mm plug-in system combines with the multimedia experiment and training system UniTrain to create a modern and powerful learning environment for well grounded training in the fundamentals of electrical engineering and electronics. Students are guided through experiments by clearly structured course software aided by text, graphics, animations and tests of knowledge. The experiments themselves are carried out on a 2-mm Experimenter unit specially developed for UniTrain or EloTrain. A wide variety of virtual instruments is available so that students can make real-time measurements. The plug-in modules contain both passive and active electronic components connected via 2-mm laminated plugs featuring gold-plated contacts. Cables or jumpers can be used to make connections to other nodes, components or measuring instruments. 

The 4-mm plug-in components can be assembled in any way on an EloTrain plug-in board so that electronic circuits of any size can be set up, operated and tested. The housings are comprised of three plastic parts clipped together. The white top part features a scratch-proof, high-contrast print of the component’s circuit diagram or symbol along with a type name for the component. The transparent body is made of extremely tough see-through plastic allowing the inside of the component to be seen. The base plate is also made containing 4-mm laminated plugs and joined to the body via an easy-to-open ratchet clip for repair purposes.

 

Plug-in systems are robust, modular electrical engineering kits. The plug-in units with electronic components inside are assembled on base boards and allow experiments on all aspects of electrical engineering, electronics and electricity to be carried out in an introductory laboratory with the minimum of wear.
