Modern Automotive Lighting Circuits Board

Our range of Autotronics boards are designed to provide a practical approach to theoretical learning, as well as developing technical skills for electronic system fault finding.

Students are set tasks that encourage them to explore CAN controlled lighting circuits practically and improve their knowledge of electrical components, circuits, signals and systems. The trainer is supplied with a curriculum CD containing theory and practical tasks, as well as tutor support materials.

The trainer can also be used in conjunction with our optional cloud-based software, which offers online practical tasks as well as interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments, which link directly to the practical activities carried out using this resource.

Practical Topics Covered Include:

  • CAN Bus lighting systems
  • CAN signals
  • CAN control of lighting circuits
    • Headlamp
    • Brake (stop) circuit
    • Reverse (back up) circuit
    • Dip/main (lo/hi) beam circuit
    • Hazard warning circuit
    • Direction indicator (turn signal) circuit
    • Side and rear (park and tail) circuits
    • Automatic lighting
