Modern Starting and Charging Systems 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.

The board is focused on the starting and charging systems of a modern vehicle. Students are set tasks that encourage them to explore CAN Data Bus systems practically and also improve their knowledge of 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. Students will also be directed to work through a  number of fault-finding activities (8 in all), encouraging fault-diagnosis skills.

Practical Topics Covered Include:

  • CAN Bus Conventional Starting and Charging Systems
