Electromag Pracbox for assessing electromagnetism subject in Electrotechnology

A practical equipment with real industry components for all your assessments
If you teach electromagnetism, you most likely struggle with

Too much theory

Electromagnetism subject is full of theory and calculations and, at the surface seems like a chore to teach. What's worse? The learners can see the material they have to get through and then be assessed on all that just scares them off.

Lack of interest

The amount of theory in this subject somehow lends itself to feel that the concepts of electromagnetism are unrealistic and have no relevance to the real world. This causes learners to lose interest and become disengaged.

Maintaining Compliance

In subjects like Electromagnetism that are full of concepts, it may feel that the best way to assess learners is knowledge assessments. The problem with this approach is that without the performance criteria being satisfied you are leaving yourself open to non-compliance.

Most components that you’ll need are in one place so you won’t need to look for them each time you do a prac

Electromag pracbox leads you to solutions

Convert theory to practice

With a wide variety of Electromagnetic components in the pracbox, you can now discuss theory and jump into practical. You can even do the practical training first and then discuss the reason behind the effects.

Ease into compliance

The components in the Electromag pracboxes are chosen very carefully from the range statement of the unit of competency. Now you don't have to rely on knowledge assessments, but leverage the skills assessments to perhaps cut down the former.

Demonstrate the relevance

Almost all the components used in the Electromag pracbox are used in the industry in some way. This makes it so much easier for you to show the relevance of the subject to the real world and engage your learners.

Compliance couldn't be easier​

What Our Customers Say

Why would someone not want to do business with us?
Worst case? Fuse will blow. There are three levels of safety in the ElectromagPracboxes – the internal power supply is an industrial power supply that has built-in short circuit and overcurrent protection, the power supply controller has another level of short circuit and overcurrent protection and the current from the controller comes through a fuse. So, let them try.
Not at all. All you need is a power outlet, testing leads and a multimeter and you can do practical assessments anywhere.
No. At this stage of the training, you probably would’ve only covered DC so we designed the Electromag pracbox to work with DC.
The inductive or hall effect sensors are not designed to run a load. They are supposed to be used with smart devices but in the Electromag Pracbox, you can use them with the LED lamps or the interface relay. If you would like to control the lamp with the sensors, we suggest you activate the interface relay with the sensors and control the lamp via the relay.
5. Probably can but with a high chance of welding the reed switch contacts shut. They are not designed to run a load but to be used with smart devices. In the Electromag Pracbox, you can use them with the LED lamps or the interface relay.
