Fully-Immersive Training Platform


Troubleshooting Industrial Sensors is a 3D simulation-training platform designed to help operations and maintenance professionals with the skills needed in an increasingly digitally-connected manufacturing environment. The platform provides manufacturers the tools and data needed to identify, assess, onboard and train the next generation of skilled laborers, especially in the electrical troubleshooting field.


Enabled by the 3D-training platform, users will be able to explore an industrial environment and understand results occurring from changing temperatures, humidity, and light.


In addition to continuous improvement performance data available to management, future updates of the platform are set to incorporate leading AI technology that would identify users’ weaknesses and strengths and plan the best training routes to reach their goals.


The Troubleshooting Industrial Sensors instructional tool will also give users the hands-on ability to take voltage, current and resistance readings, and interactively view the PLC ladder program through the virtual laptop to identify problems with sensors, transmitters, PLCs, wiring, and other input and output components.


Activities Include:

  • Identification of the main components of a 4-20 mA current loop
  • How the 4-20 mA current loop works
  • Scaling between sensor input/transmitter output and analog input values
  • The role of the power supply and how to ensure it is adequate to meet the needs of the loop
  • How to calculate current output with a measured value given a sensor’s unit of measurement, range, and span
  • Overview of popular common sensor types including their operation, required signal conditioning, and common troubleshooting issues



  • Operation of an Analog Input Module including load resistor, ADCs, and wiring
  • Comparison of analog current and voltage signals
  • Configuration of an analog input channel including scaling and alarms
  • How to read and interpret a ladder diagram PLC program
  • Demonstrations, hands-on labs, and continuous performance measurement
  • Step-by-step guides help users apply new problem-solving techniques to find and repair faults
  • Printable resources including circuit diagrams, schematics, and worksheets
