UniTrain: Automotive electrical fundamentals (USA/Australia)

Offer students an introduction to the fascinating world of electronics in vehicles with this training system. All the circuits are pre-fabricated and can be put into action simply by plugging in a few bridging plugs (jumpers). A key focus is in the usage and operation of measuring instruments when testing a customer's vehicle. The focus is especially on correct and sustainable measurements on the individual components in the vehicle - especially in connection with the integrated fault simulation.
