Matrix: Automotive Motors, Generators and Charging Systems

Email

Description

The Automotive Motors, Generators and Charging Systems kit allows students to explore the fundamentals behind motors and charging systems. This kit provides students with a basic understanding of motor construction and a range of experiments that aids students understanding of charging systems. This pack introduces students to the use of oscilloscopes to observe AC, DC pulse width modulated and single pulse signals.
