Automotive

The Locktronics automotive range has been designed to meet the requirements of automotive engineering course standards set by the IMI, City & Guilds and BTEC. The range is split into three levels, basic, intermediate and advanced and is ideal for automotive technicians to gain a good understanding of electrics, circuits and circuit fault finding, moving through to more complex solutions for understanding of ECUs and CAN bus in vehicles. Locktronics is used and endorsed by many of the world's most prestigious automotive manufacturers as a platform for simplifying automotive electrics to complete novices and advanced technicians alike.

Testimonials

IVECO:

"Having used the Student Automotive kits for over 15 years, I have found them to be an excellent teaching and instructional aid in giving our students a better understanding of Basic Electrical principles.

We have recently purchased the CAN bus Locktronics kits from Matrix to reflect the more complex systems now being introduced to our vehicles. This has allowed us to better structure our courses.

Increasing the practical content when using these kits, has a distinct advantage in that it gives our students more of a hands on approach to these new technologies.

Being able to construct and test a CAN network using the Locktronics kits, they find it easier to understand the principles and operation of Multiplex systems, when they are applied to our vehicles.

The new kits allow us to simulate all these systems on a table top, which certainly has the benefit in that all the students are involved at the same time."
