How to know if the electrical kit is good or not?

How to know if the electrical kit is good or not?

With many electrical aspirants, looking forward to having the relevant skills for improving their resume and acquiring proficiency, the demand for good courses that are affordable and provides a sound electrical knowledge has increased. But choosing wisely with appropriate information is very much necessary to avoid any discrepancies.  Below are mentioned some really helpful tips that will help you guide through it:

1. Kit quality: The electrical components involve a lot of wires and boards and other fragile components as well. It should be checked that these components are not damaged or have any technical glitches. Also, the company issuing these parts should be up to the mark or provide with a warranty.

2. Kits and courses should be fruitful: The kits along with course must issue a certificate or a proof of completion that you may attach to your profile.

3. Scope in future: Before starting off with a new project or a skill, check if it has a future or not. If it is certain to have a good scope in the future, then the project proves beneficial.

4. Reusability: Check if the kits can be reused for building some other projects.

Do’s and Don’ts of Electrical projects

  1. Do use proper tools, for example, use a wire stripper to strip the wires. Usage of any other tool like a knife might damage the wires or your fingers.
  2. Do wind the wires properly and insulate them using insulation tape.
  3. Don’t overload your electrical project kits by giving high voltage.
  4. Don’t interchange the terminals, connect positive to positive and negative to negative.
  5. Turn off the switches before unplugging your electrical project kit from the power socket.

Best Electrical projects for engineering students:

Before buying any kit, it is more important to decide upon a good electrical project which not only adds to your resume but even benefits the society even on a small level. For instance, Skyfi Labs has developed some online project-based course by which you can learn and build innovative electrical projects at your own pace. Some of the best electrical project ideas are listed below. So, have a look.

1. Home automation system using IoT: In this electrical project, you will learn to build an electrical device that can be used to control all the home appliances using Bluetooth technology. The project you develop can be used to switch ON/OFF the devices by giving commands using an Android App installed on a mobile phone. You will be able to store and analyze the data about the usage of home appliances. 

  • By building this project you will learn about:
  • IoT - Concepts & Applications
  • Arduino Architecture & Programming
  • Bluetooth Communication
