Here you will find a range of


Extra-Low-Voltage

Low-Power

 Electric Rotating Machines

&

 Auxiliary Equipment


Specifically developed to provide and enable

 Student
“Hands-On” learning

In the various courses &/or subjects in Electrotechnology

 This is the fourth generation in a line of machines originally developed in Australia in the late 1970’s by
the Electrical Trades Section teachers at
Bankstown College of TAFE (NSW)

and latter marketed by

 Betts Electric Motors and Unistream Pty Ltd

 Please Note.
 Motors can also be supplied at other low voltages(LV) (415V, 240V,or 120V) and/or frequencies if required

However output power (torque) will also increase potentially making them unsuitable for students to stall the motors with their hand

I have noted that some teachers have reservations about the
 Extra-Low-Voltage (ELV) concept and would prefer students to work with standard LOW voltage equipment.

Their concern is a safety issue, where the teachers are worried the student may become complacent, after training with the ELV, and not treat normal LOW Voltage(LV) motors in the field with the respect they deserve.


The concern is valid to a point. However, the argument is not valid, as students may, or at some time in the future, be required to work with High Voltage (HV) motors (11kV, 22kV etc).
 
It must be remembered the function and responsibility of TAFE is to provide the "supplementary" theoretical education to "complement" the intensive  full time on the job training 

TAFE needs to be able operate without the extra restrictive OH&S practices and teacher responsibility that Low voltage(LV) would introduce into the hands-on practical(laboratory) sessions.. An unnecessary distraction which would detract the emphasis away from the theory component.


The responsibility, of providing the full time training, and enforcement, of the safe working practices required for working in industry with Low & High Voltages (or Currents) is the duty of the employer
