The ETS training system Automation Technology covers all the areas of industrial automation. It was conceived as a modular system, thus being attractive in price and open for any future modifications and expansions.
The modular structure also allows tailoring the system to the requirements and desires of the customers. So the best and cost-effective solution can be found for every field of automation.
A great variety of components from all areas of automation are included in the training package Automation Technology (see Learning Objectives), they allow realizing high-quality and cost-saving systems at the same time. The knowledge acquired in other technical fields - e. g. drive technology - can thus be expanded and substantiated.
