Unique training benefits

Scalable simulator training solution

A scalable solution

The Vortex Advantage is built to grow with you, whether you’re training one-on-one or entire classrooms. Select from one, three, or five screens, or add motion to reproduce the feel of equipment in motion, including vibration, impact, acceleration, and overload conditions.

Simply adaptable

The Vortex Advantage is ready to mirror your fleet: To complement CM Labs’ suite of equipment training modules, the Vortex Advantage features equipment-specific hot-swappable control sets and pedals. The three-screen option also rotates to replicate equipment-specific sight lines.

All in one

A sleek hardware design, a full catalogue of training modules, and the Vortex simulation “engine” — the Vortex Advantage integrates all three elements in a single plug-and-play training platform, with all the quality and durability you’ve come to expect from CM Labs.
