The Electrical Installation in Refrigeration Systems is an educational oriented device manufactured specifically to illustrate the different circuits and electrical devices associated with the refrigeration field, with this trainer the trainee can practice designing and executing different electrical circuits with different purposes.

  • The wiring of electrical components is a typical task in the field of refrigeration.
  • Besides the design and operation of the individual components, Knowledge about the interaction of the components in circuits is an important learning objective.
  • Safety aspects also play an important role.
  • With This product this knowledge and these skills can be acquired.
  • The electrical components are arranged clearly visible.
  • All the components are arranged on an upright stand such that they are all accessible and very visible, all components are connected on terminal blocks.
  • Using the cable included in the scope of delivery it is possible to set-up different circuits correctly and operationally.
  • The trainer includes five lamps that simulate the consumers usage.
  • All components are operated and tested with mains voltage to provide high relevance for practice.
  • There are electrical components for the start and operation of refrigerant compressors, such as e.g. electromagnetic start-up relay and capacitor.
  • With a timer, circuits can be designed andexamined for cyclical defrosting in refrigeration systems. This also includes the correct programming of the timer.
  • Typical safety components, such as pressure switches, thermostats and circuit breakers are also included in the scope of delivery.
  • These components enable the design and examination of a typical safety chain for refrigeration.
  • The unit is fixed on four caster wheels to eases its motion inside the laboratory, these caster wheels are equipped with brakes to prevent the trainer from sliding during the operation.
  • The unit is treated against rust and electrostatically painted.
