Matrix: Electrical Installation Circuit Principles

Email

Description

This solution (LK4562) covers two separate topics.  Firstly students can use the Locktronics components and a signal generator to export inductive and capacitive reactance and to compare the effects these have on circuits with resistance.

Secondly, the pack includes a selection of components that allows students to explore how solenoids and relays are used in electronics circuits, and how circuit breakers and RCDs are used in electrical safety systems.

Learning objectives/experiments

  • Inductive and capacitive reactance
  • Impedance and AC circuits
  • Contactors, relays, solenoids
  • Safety systems and earth systems
  • MCB, RCD operation
