Motor Faults Pracbox for assessing and training Induction motors and fault finding

Motor Faults Pracbox covers the working of single and three-phase induction motors and 60 sets of fault-finding exercises
Major problems with induction motors assessment and training

Inconvenient setup

To teach or assess induction motors, you will need at least 5 to 8 motors and if you are teaching fault-finding in these then you'll need at least 10 to 16, if not more. You now have too many equipment but the problem is, you only have one motor at a time, which is not very convenient in teaching a group of 16 students. Mind you, this is a fixed setup, you will have to reserve a room just for this.

Very expensive

Buying so many motors is expensive and even more expensive is the fault-finding setup. Once you make one equipment faulty, there is usually no going back, which means if you want to show multiple faults, you will have to buy more motors.

Not enough testing

The biggest concern most educators and regulators have is the lack of enough testing opportunities for students. This is because you can test an equipment two or three times before it gets unengaging because nothing is changing, so there is no learning.

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

Motor Faults Pracbox can help

One equipment, Five motors

One motor faults pracbox provides an opportunity to train and assess in 5 types of motors. This makes it very convenient and since this is a compact box, you can take it to any room. Nothing gets in your way of training your students.

Faults system included

You're not just buying a pracbox with the convenience of 5 motors, but also a fault-finding system built into it. So you're not just limited to teaching about the working of the motors but also how to find faults and without any extra cost.

Students become testing experts

The faults system that is onboard the motor faults pracbox has 30 sets of faults for each - single and three phase motors, making it 60 sets of faults altogether. Your students will get more than 60 opportunities to test the motors with changing faults, which will keep them engaged.

What Our Customers Say

Our clients


Why would someone not want to do business with us?
It is not safe to power the motors while some of the faults are on like short circuit or high resistance winding faults. That’s why we suggest to remove all power while the fault system is on and remove the supply for the fault system if you wish to power the motors
Yes, we have ensured that the motors will run at a very low torque so touching the shaft is safe. In fact, we encourage trainers to allow their learners to feel how the torque changes when the motor circuits change. But we do suggest caution with loose clothing and hair. Also, it is not advisable to touch a motor in a non-training setup.
The system is designed to have only one fault set on at a time and a set can have a maximum of 3 predetermined faults. We have chosen every single fault set carefully to ensure no faults coincide to give an unexpected fault.
No, they are designed to operate in single phasing so you can demonstrate it without the fear of them burning. An in any motor, prolonged single phasing will heat the motor windings, which is never a good sign. We suggest not to run it in single phasing for longer than 2 minutes.
No, we have designed the setup in a way that you can demonstrate this scenario to your learners without burning the windings.
