Switch EV Trainer designed to provide tailored EV technician training

The Switch EV Trainer includes all of the components of a modern EV drivetrain on a compact, insulated, mobile platform.

Switch Vehicles, Inc. is introducing the Switch EV Trainer EV training platform, available now. The Switch EV Trainer offers hands-on activities and troubleshooting challenges for students to learn the fundamentals of electricity, how to identify electric vehicle components, how to properly wire components, how to safely work with high-voltage electricity and more.

The Switch EV Trainer includes all of the components of a modern EV drivetrain on a compact (2.5’x3’x3.2’), insulated, mobile platform. It arrives fully assembled, and rolls into any workspace for immediate use, the company says. The Switch EV Trainer also aligns with industry standards, aiding in the preparation for ASE xEV Level 1 & 2 certifications.

The company says that the Trainer’s configurable battery management system and motor controller provide a tailored learning experience, while real-time data interpretation from the integrated CAN network enriches the educational process. The Hyper 9 motor with controller, regenerative braking capability, and the Orion2 Battery Management System further enhance the trainer’s capabilities, Switch Vehicles says.

“With the increased demand for The Switch Lab, we saw an opportunity to develop a smaller footprint EV trainer that would be accessible to a broader market,” says Peter Oliver, CEO at Switch Vehicles, Inc.

The company says key features include: a space-saving ADA doorway-compliant folding design with a security lock and locking drawers; visible and easy-to-access components; wiring looms for ease of wiring lessons; a tabletop space for the included laptop and tools; and drawers for tool and wire storage.
