Nida Model 130ST Trainer (3-position)

The Model 130ST Trainer is a three position, premier platform, used for hands-on performance-based technical training. When combined with computer-based courseware and customized circuit card sets, the transfer of knowledge and skill is guaranteed. This single Trainer can deliver basic hands-on subjects ranging from core level Electronics to advanced Avionics.

130St Trainer supports all existing Nida legacy experiment cards and all new "Fast Track" experiment cards. The “ST” designator in the trainer’s name represents an array of Smart Technologies that include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, system monitoring, self-tests, and user feedback. The “ST” also refers to the intuitive, interactive and versatile relationship between Student and Teacher. The four-way communication between lesson, student, teacher, and trainer is a uniquely Nida interaction.

The Model 130ST Trainer is designed for use with many training environments including, traditional computer based training supported by desktop computer systems; flexible delivery supported by a student tablet interface; Nida online eLearning; and stand-alone lab manual instruction. Regardless of the instructional method, the Model 130ST Trainer manages voltages, current, and fault conditions used during investigative and troubleshooting experiments. All experimentation is focused on live, hands-on use of real test equipment.


Fast Track Experiment Cards

  •    The Fast Track Technician course is supported by a new group of experiment cards designed to focus specifically on getting a technician to the job as quickly as possible. The Fast Track Experiment cards are system oriented and emphasize schematic reading and test equipment analysis. The new cards take full advantage of the larger equipment card footprint offered by the Model 130ST and incorporate the interactive feedback between the card, lesson, and student.

Smart Technology

  •    In a world filled with an "Internet of Things" (IoT) the Model 130ST is designed with capabilities that support desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth available, this trainer will support technologies now and well into the future. In addition to IoT, this console supports stand-alone manuals operation and computer managed clustering.

Legacy Experiment Cards

  •    All Nida legacy experiment cards are functional on the Model 130ST.


Display: The Model 130ST uses a 7" capacitive-touch color screen for visual outputs and manual inputs. In CAI mode the display shows voltage outputs and lesson generated information. Icons alert for speaker and input/output BNC jack applications as required by CAI lessons.

Card Feedback: Auxiliary pins at each card location provide feedback to identify the proper configuration of the circuit card or confirmation of actual measurements

Dimensions: 4.5"H x 11.5"D x 17.5"W

Communication Link: Serial or USB computer interface
