This trainer is part of the Core Electronics series. It allows the practical study of a wide range of electronics subjects, including DC and AC circuits, electrical networks, semiconductors, logic gates and fault-finding techniques.
The unique design of the trainer includes a heavy-duty casing with transparent protective cover. When in use, the cover folds back to provide an angled support for the unit. With the cover closed, trainers become stackable for easy storage.
A range of optional experiment cards may be plugged into the trainer to address further subject areas, including electronic systems, transistor amplifiers, linear and digital systems, telecommunications, and microprocessors.
The trainer is supplied with a comprehensive set of carrier-mounted components and a digital curriculum disc providing a comprehensive course of electronics study.
The trainer includes the following devices and features:
Patching area for use with component set
Connection system for optional plug-in experiment cards
On-board signal generator providing square wave and sine wave signal sources
8 logic switches and 2 pushbutton switches for use as control inputs
Zero insertion force socket to accommodate dual-in-line integrated circuits
