mobileLab DC Case

Description

With the mobileLab® teaching system, you can impart basic electronic knowledge in an experimental way, as is currently required in over 30 training professions. In contrast to the often used demonstration systems, the mobileLab® concept offers the decisive advantage that the learner himself carries out and reflects on the tasks set.

The case system is technically prepared in such a way that the learner can carry out technical-physical correlations within the respective learning situation without any risk. Since the teaching system works with low voltages, no special protective measures are necessary. The individual cases can be operated independently of each other. The charging of the cases can be done by the included power supply unit or the optionally available charging and storage cabinet. The equipment of the cases offers all necessary elements for the implementation of a student-active experimental teaching in the field of electrical engineering. The clear arrangement within the cases allows the students to quickly check for completeness.

The detailed documents (not included in the scope of delivery) and the prefabricated experimental templates enable the teaching staff to set up experiments quickly and easily. Time-consuming test trials and set-up times are eliminated at this point. They also support instructors and trainees in planning and designing independent learning.

The concept of mobileLab® has been reworked and essential equipment features have been improved. Only measuring devices are used, which the trainee will also use later in practice. Furthermore, processes and oscillograms can be displayed graphically on the PC via serial interfaces on multimeters and scopemeters using the software included in the scope of delivery.

Details

In the revised version of the DC case, the DC voltage has been extended to 0-6 volts. The system also allows fine voltage adjustments and has an automatic shutdown function in case of overload or short circuit as well as a protection function for faulty switching. Additional lamps and capacitors extend the scope of the experiment and visualize series and parallel connections. In addition, formulas for series and parallel connections of capacitors can be determined with the case. As with the AC case, an improved multimeter is included.

Learning Objectives

An overview of the learning objectives from the field of basic circuits in DC technology:

  • Build and understand simple electrical circuits
  • Get to know, understand and apply Ohm's law
  • Build, calculate and measure series and parallel connections of resistors
  • Set up and analyze unloaded/loaded voltage divider
  • Combining capacitors in series and parallel circuits
  • Establish and understand latching circuit with relay

Time dependent processes in the DC circuit:

  • Measuring and evaluating the charging and discharging process of a capacitor

Non-linear components:

  • Evaluate and measure nonlinear resistances
  • Analyze and understand semiconductor devices, such as diode and transistor
Suitable for

mobileLab® is suitable for use in both in-company training and in school lessons. Due to its occupation-neutral orientation, the system is ideal for vocational schools or training centres, as a large number of expensive occupation-specific specialist room equipment can be saved. Through learning objects or the context, it is also possible to impart in-depth specialist knowledge.
