This two-day Electric Motors Drives and Automation training course will discuss application and installation issues related to motors, variable frequency drives and related automation products in three important sessions. The course will conclude with an operating demonstration that will illustrate the three types of equipment tied together into one system via communication cabling, as well as over air via radio transmission.

The Electric Motors  Drives and Automation training course will provide the delegates with a solid base of Motor, Drive and Automation theory. The course will also make delegates aware of issues concerning the proper application, installation and maintenance of these types of equipment. The material handouts will cover a wide range starting from the basics and moving on to more complex issues.
