High-Speed Glow System

High-Speed Glow System
(Equipment set: ATS1)

This training environment comprising a high-speed glow system is ideal for practical and in-depth education on modern glow systems in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. A use of the latest educational concepts and numerous interactive animations for graphic representation of complex arrangements in automotive technology guarantees trainees a special learning experience.
In addition, didactically designed experiment hardware allows a mediation of diagnostic skills which trainees can directly apply in daily workshop activities.

The experiment hardware consists of real automotive components. Each component is treated realistically as an individual entity, and as part of an entire assortment comprising the high-speed glow system. This makes it possible to practically demonstrate the relationships arising from the principle of input, processing and output.

The associated software incorporates the full course and provides multimedia representations of the provided hardware components. Students are thereby encouraged to operate interactively on a regular basis. Also described are numerous procedures for experiments and measurements involving the components.

Simple wiring ensures fast and immediate start-up of the training system.
