Simutech Multimedia (Ottawa, Canada) has launched a new 3D simulation-training platform designed to help operations and maintenance professionals in an increasingly digitally-connected manufacturing environment. The new platform will look to provide the tools and data needed to identify, assess and train new workers, with a special focus on the electrical troubleshooting field. Users are able to explore an industrial environment and understand results occurring from changing temperatures, humidity and light. Future updates will look to incorporate AI technology capable of identifying users’ weaknesses and strengths in planning the best training routes to reach their goals. Included in the launch is the new Troubleshooting Industrial Sensors instructional tool that provides the hands-on ability to take voltage, current and resistance readings, and interactively view the PLC ladder program through the virtual laptop to identify problems with sensors, transmitters, PLCs, wiring and other input and output components.
