Electrical Control Techniques Simulator – EKTS is a motor control simulation software for designing Electromechanical Systems. It allows you to design variety of electromechanical systems using relays, time relays, buttons, motors, switches and some basic mechanical systems. EKTS motor control circuit simulator allows building custom motor circuits using different motor types, including single and three phase motors, in different quantities. Main usage of this simulator is aiming to teach basics of Electromechanical systems, therefore it have error pointing feature which shows exact location of error and cause that produces error. Other useful feature of simulator is listing all used circuit elements for calculating price and defining parts with quantities that will be used in circuit.

EKTS software doesn’t calculate current flow and power distribution through circuit elements, therefore it doesn’t guarantee having same result in real environment. We strongly recommend having approval by competent supervisor before applying designed circuits in real environment.
