Virtual School- Unico Drives & Cut Control

Fosber America's Training Department is offering a 4-day webinar on Unico Variable Frequency Drives used in Master 400 and Evolution Cut-Off Knives. The technicians taking this course should have basic electrical knowledge and experience. The course is a continuation of our Basic Electrical School.

The course is designed to give the experienced electrical technician skills that would allow them to perform troubleshooting tasks using the HMI on the drive or interfacing the drive with a computer.

Students will become familiar with the components of the drive, how they interact with the machine and how to troubleshoot the cut control system.

Students will also become familiar with how to use the electrical schematics to assist with drive troubleshooting. 

This is an Intermediate level course in a series of electrical courses to be offered by Fosber America. Future Intermediate level course topics will include Basic Electricity, Safety Controller, Emergency Circuits, and Advanced Troubleshooting classes. 

Fosber America's Virtual Schools are desgined to deliver a typical 2 day school curriculum into 4 hour webinars presented over the course of 4 days.
