General Information

WHAT IS A SIMULATOR?

Simulation is a technology that helps training operators facing dangerous or high risk situations, and offers an opportunity to practice difficult maneuvers without any risk, providing operators with high safety environment skills. In short, simulators do everything that cannot be done in the real machine for safety reasons.

Simulation is used for training of both beginners and experienced operators, managing the development of experienced staff, often reminding of situations that can sometimes be forgotten with time. For this reason the training and continuous review of processes help us avoid high risk situations. For many years, different industries have been using simulators for training and continuing education.

The evolution of technology allows companies such as e-Tech Solutions Corp., through its simulation division e-Tech Simulation to develop high-performance simulators with costs that make them affordable and profitable to companies of all sizes in all industry sectors in the world.

TYPE OF SIMULATORS

Simulators are manufactured in three types of settings, from the simplest and cheapest, with Gamepad type controls, to the most sophisticated with real controls and mounted on moving platforms where virtual reality is very close to the actual operation of equipment simulated.

Standard Simulators are those that because of their low price and simple controls are called “trainers” and are widely used for beginners to acquire basic knowledge of equipment, controls and basic movements of each of the simulated machine. Due to its low costs, they are used in massive training classrooms where laboratories may have 15 or more “trainers” together.

  • CBT – Computer Based Training
  • Simulations in which the software and some basic controls are the fundamental
  • They are commonly referred to as “Trainers”
  • “Gamepad” Controls
  • Computer’s Sound
  • Visual System from 20 to 32 “
  • Very low maintenance cost.
  • Immediate delivery

Intermediate Simulators are those that because of their great return on investment (ROI) are the most used in different industries due to the fact that they offer the best results for their cost / benefit (learning / price). These simulators include OEM controls (Generic, actual computer), which gives greater realism. Most of the controls, buttons, seats, pedals, wheels and all its components are generally very similar to the real machines. There is also a visual and immersive sound system where the software is also usually more advanced and includes an instructor station and a printing station in which reports are printed and results of the exercises performed get evaluated.

They may also have economic systems with motion platform, Tracker systems, and static cabins, among others.

  • Higher ROI since they offer seats and commands very similar to the real machines
  • Administrator Software
  • Instructor Station
  • Printing Station
  • Custom-made controls
  • Stereo Sound operator
  • 3 optional types of visual system
    • Monitors from 42 “to 60” – Immersion average
    • 3 Monitors with 120 degrees of immersion
    • 5 or more projectors with up to 180 degrees conical immersion.
    • Optional Stereoscopic Vision– 3D
    • Optional Tracking System
    • 2 or 3 DOF Motion Platform
    • Low to medium cost of maintenance
    • Delivery time ranges between 30 to 60 days.

Advanced simulators are those where the realism of each of its components is the main feature. Controls, cabins 6-8 DOF motion platforms, peripheral visual systems, instructor stations and sophisticated software make it the most realistic; ideal for training institutions and departments where the latest technology is a must.

  • Controls and very real replica chair custom-made to each equipment
  • Original Joysticks – OEM
  • Cabin to simulate an identical working environment
  • Visual System from 180 to 360 degrees, spherical immersion
  • Motion Platform of 6 to 8 DOF
  • Computers Rack
  • Network connection for external trainers
  • Video Cameras
  • Home Theatre sound of 5 points
  • Intercommunication
  • Printing Station
  • Medium to high maintenance costs
  • Delivery time ranges between 9 to 12 months
