The petrol engine troubleshooting trainer tends to simulate an electronically controlled petrol engine. It demonstrates the engine structure, its operation method, in addition to the systems necessary
for its operation. The educational unit is also provided with a touch screen PC supplied with BEDO interactive software used for the troubleshooting process.
- 4-cylinder petrol engine mounted on a robust frame with six wheels for ease of relocation.
- The Unit includes all components required for engine operation such as battery, electric circuitry, ignition switch, fuel reservoir, ECU, camshaft position sensor, Crank shaft position sensor, ECT sensor, stop lamp switch, ideal speed actuator, fuel injection system, ignition system, cooling system, complete intake & exhaust system, starter motor and alternator.
- The Unit allows the trainee to vary engine RPM using the automatic transmission lever.
- The Unit is designed in a manner to allow the trainee to observe all system components.
- A large control panel includes operation switches, fault simulation switches, vehicle dash board and a port for connecting external fault diagnosis equipment (DLC).
- Unit allows connecting an external multi- meter or oscilloscope between dedicated terminals of some system components and a common earth terminal; that is to measure electric parameters of these components.
- the unit is supplied with gauges panel to demonstrate oil pressure of automatic transmission solenoid valve
- The Unit is capable of simulating up to 20 engine faults.
- Trainer differs from a normal petrol engine trainer in that it has a touch screen computer that is equipped with an interactive software capable of simulating different faults.
- The software includes practical exercises of different levels for the student to practice starting with an elementary guided level.
- The software allows the instructor to set tests for the trainee, where the instructor chooses the number of faults and the level of the test and whether the score depends on the completion time or not.
- During the test, the trainee can monitor the system, use logical analysis or a multi-meter in testing components to detect malfunctions, and through the software request virtual replacement of doubtful components.
- At the end of the test the score is calculated based on the number and cost of the components requested for replacement, and on the number and cost of components presumed faulty, and a typical technician’s fare for completing the job, taking into consideration the time spent based on the instructor request.
- The software can also submit a complete report about the trainee based on attendance, progress during trainings, and test scores.
- The engine condition is refurbished by default, where it has undergone a complete overhaul, replacement of faulty or worn components, and has received a paint job.
- Alternatively the engine could be supplied in new condition upon special request.
- The unit is fixed on four caster wheels to ease 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.
