Conventional Controls

SKEL 111

Course Description

Prerequisite: SKMA 111. Develops competencies in reading basic electrical blueprints and troubleshooting through familiarization of basic control devices. Develops visual and analytical relationships between the device and the corresponding blueprint configurations and symbols. Discusses and applies basic troubleshooting skills using the electro-pneumatic laboratory simulation training board. (45-0)

Outcomes and Objectives

Identify the appropriate electrical symbol and apply it to one line or ladder diagrams.

Objectives:

  • Verbalize their understanding of electrical symbols and how they function in basic electrical circuit configurations.
  • Construct electrical circuits using paper generated ladder diagrams and transfer this knowledge to hardwired equipment on laboratory breadboards.
  • Construct and cognitively verify operation of electrical circuits.

Construct and troubleshoot ladder logic diagrams in a laboratory environment.

Objectives:

  • Safely build and energize 20 laboratory circuits and verify the operation of each circuit.
  • Verify the written circuit operational procedures with circuit operational functionality.
  • Troubleshoot and correct circuits to comply with written operational functionality.
