Course Name Maintaining & Troubleshooting Allen- Bradley 1336 Drives (40-Hour Format)
Category B Course No. EE 352

Course Description This forty hour, hands-on course uses low horsepower Allen-Bradley 1336 Plus variable frequency motor drives that have been configured as trainers. During the workshop the drives are interconnected to a programmable logic controller (PLC). This allows the participant to experience drive/controller interconnectivity as is typical in some industrial applications. The building blocks of the drives are explained along with methods for performing maintenance and troubleshooting. These methods include using the drive parameters along with meter measurements at the drive terminal block interfaces. Representative faults are inserted allowing the participants to do real troubleshooting exercises during the workshop.
