About the Simulations

Two unique control circuit simulations are included.

The practice circuit simulation consists of a transformer, a fuse, several relays, switches, and lights.

The electric door lock circuit is a more complex simulation containing additional components including push buttons, solenoids, and proximity switch, that puts you in a realistic environment where you will refine and test your control circuit troubleshooting skills. Here you can

  • Input combinations to unlock the door
  • Take voltage and resistance readings with a multimeter
  • Repair and replace electrical components
  • Disconnect and ring out wires
  • Trace and replace wires

This simulation contains over 50 circuit malfunctions to solve with faults ranging from

  • broken wires and loose connections
  • wires shorted to ground
  • defective components
