Industrial Electrical Controls Fundamentals (MFG213)

Feb 28 - Mar 3

This course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to install, maintain and troubleshoot machine controls.

At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the safety considerations that must be observed when installing, checking or locking out electrical equipment
  • Define uses and functions of input and output devices, relays, and motors
  • Demonstrate the reading of schematic diagrams and logic
  • Define an open and short condition and perform voltage and current measurements
  • Demonstrate the proper use of the following test equipment in lab to measure voltage, current, resistance and continuity: VOM, DVM, Multi-meters, continuity tester and amp probe
  • Approximate secondary voltage, secondary current and primary current of a transformer when given its turns ratio, primary voltage and secondary load
  • Identify the proper wiring configurations of a control transformer’s primary current for 240V and 480V operation
  • Approximate a transformer’s maximum primary current for 480V operation, using the nameplate information

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Individuals who are responsible for installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting electromechanical machine controls should attend this course.
