Industrial Controls 115

Advanced level course that is designed for master level electricians. The course will teach electricians to trouble-shoot complex relay control circuits. Each student will wire a pumping station control panel and test it. They will also trouble-shoot and find bugs that instructors will install into their panels. The students will be timed as they trouble-shoot and must find and correct the problem in less than 20 minutes.
Prerequisite: Students should have a sound understanding relay control circuits and motor starters with at least 3 years of experience trouble-shooting relay controls. Course #101 is recommended if student has less than 3 years experience. Learner’s Outcomes:

  • 1. The student will improve in his troubleshooting techniques by simulation software. The student will be introduced to new techniques for locating blown fuse problems and will test their knowledge using circuit fault simulation software.
  • 2. The student will improve their industrial control circuit knowledge by designing circuits from functional descriptions.
  • 3. The student will learn standard wiring practices and will prove those skills by wiring a circuit that the student has designed.
  • 4. The instructor will insert problems into a water pumping station and the student will troubleshoot the problem and be measured by time standards.
  • 5. The student will design, and wire circuits using pneumatic timers and motor driven timers.
  • 6. The student will design, wire and troubleshoot several timer circuits.
  • 7. The student will have a final timed test on their troubleshooting skills using a portable machine tool that employs timers.
    Course Length: 30 hours. This training is supported by funding through the Department of Labor and Industry.
