The TU-501 Build-Up Trainer is designed for students with a working knowledge of the theory of refrigeration electrical control systems. Using this training unit, future technicians are required to design a system that matches specifications of a particular situation. Connections between components are wired by the students.
Components are provided for backboard mounting in preferred arrangement. (Mounting hardware not included.)

Similar to the TU-101 educational unit, the TU-501 Build-Up trainer requires students to design a system that matches specifications of a particular situation. Since there is no specific blueprint, it’s left open-ended and up to instructor interpretation. This unit is intended for students with a working knowledge of the theory of refrigeration and electrical control systems as they are required to wire and mount different components onto the board. These apparatuses include various controls, circuits and motors, which are attached to the frame to energize circuits. Connections between components are designed to be wired by the student. With a customized frame and built-in storage cabinets, the finished design looks clean and professional, which makes a great showpiece in the lab. Also, the TU-501 Build-Up trainer is great for use as a capstone project by graduating students. Recommended eLearning curriculum for the TU-501 covers electrical theory and identifying common components.
