MCCLogic is a software simulation package for training electricians in fault-finding.
Although it is based on a simple motor starter the fault-finding techniques learned by using the software can be applied to a whole range of equipment.
The software is built of two parts: the graphic representation of the system equipment, and a mathematical simulation of the analogue circuits. The student can probe terminals on the simulation screens and measure the voltage at each point. Faults can be applied to the circuit, which then allows the student to practice identification of faults by understanding the schematics and the observed measurements.
Faults can be introduced manually or from a pre-defined timed sequence of events controlled by a script running in the background. Scripts can be customised and saved and can create complex scenarios which will test the abilities of the most experienced technician.
This program assumes that the user understands what a motor starter is, what it is used for and how it works, and is familiar with the terminology associated with it.

The software has complex calculations to perform to simulate the analogue circuitry, so a Windows (version 7 or later) PC with plenty of memory (at least 4GB) and a powerful CPU will improve the user experience. The software will run on 32-bit machines, but these may experience memory problems due to memory fragmentation, so 64-bit is recommended. A mouse with a scroll wheel is required.

MCCLogic is the little brother of SCRLogic – a complete simulation of the SCR drilling motor controls on a drilling rig. For more information or to download a demo of SCRLogic please visit the SCRLogic page.
