Automated System Technology
This forty-hour training course covers the basics of DC (direct current) and AC (alternating current) theory and fundamentals. Course topics include concepts of electrical schematics, components, voltage, current and resistance. Ohms Law is used extensively to verify the results obtained from the outcomes of the lab experiments. Power supplies and test equipment like the digital volt Ohm meter will be operated to make observations of circuit parameters and operation. Prerequisite: Shop Math
This forty- hour course is designed to provide the basic skills in AC / DC motors and motor control. The prerequisite for this course is Electrical Fundamentals. The course provides an understanding of the operation of AC and DC motors and motor control circuits. Course topics include AC / DC motor operations, control circuit components, motor control wiring, connections, ladder diagrams, and interpretation of electronic motor control schematics.
This sixteen (16) hour course is designed to provide the necessary skills needed to identify components and best practices used in manual and laser leveling and alignment. The students will learn different leveling and alignment techniques and practice leveling and aligning various components. This course is designed to provide practical hands on training for maintenance technicians who have no or limited background in this area of service. It is not intended for a journeyman millwright.
This forty-hour training course covers the basics of digital electronics fundamentals and troubleshooting digital circuits. The prerequisite for this course is Electrical Fundamentals. Course topics include concepts of logic gates, Boolean expressions, schematics for logic gates, inverters, and amplifiers, Digital Electronic Circuits and Troubleshooting analysis.The student will be introduced to the many types and boundary ranges of sensors. Adjustment and alignment of sensors when needed will be included in the coursework. Sinking and sourcing explanations along with NPN and PNP types of sensors are included in the class. Interfacing sensors with PLC inputs and troubleshooting field wiring will also be covered. The coursework is 50% hands on where the student will investigate the logic that is outputted from different types of sensors. Imbedded in all labs will be terms, schematic symbols, and methods of bench testing a wide range of sensors. Videos will be included in the curriculum to enhance the learning experience of the participant.
This forty-hour course is designed to provide the basic skills needed to Operate and Program a Fanuc Robot. Course topics include Robotic Safety, Controls, Operations and Handling Tool Programming.
This forty-hour course is designed to familiarize participants with the Rockwell RSLogix PLC programming. The prerequisites for this course are Electrical Fundamentals, Motor Control and Drives and Digital Electronics. This course will provide learners with the fundamentals needed to create, transfer, test and verify working RSLogix projects.The uses of Ladder logic are explained. Participants will be able to monitor, edit, and create Programs and Routines to construct, monitor or modify projects. The concept of ladder logic using tags and datatypes instead of data tables will be applied. Participants will go online with controllers and edit ladder routines online and offline.
