Industrial Controls

This 24- hour course provides a basic introduction to motor control devices and the fundamental theory of motorcontrol circuitry. 

Topics include: Across the line starting, pilot devices, contactors, and control relays. It continues with: Two and three wire latching control circuits, forward reversing circuits, overload and overcurrent protection devices, ladder diagrams and motor control schematic reading, troubleshooting,and NEC motor installations guidelines.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define actuator auxiliary contact, ca, dashpot, deadband, dielectric constant, dropout voltage, eddy current, electromechanical relay (EMR), infrared (IR), International Electro Technical Commission (IEC),jogging, inching, line-powered sensor, load-powered sensor, maintained contact switch, momentarycontact switch, motor control circuit, operator, pickup voltage, pilot devices, plugging, proximity sensors(switches), seal-in voltage, set point
  • Identify contactors and relays both physically and schematically and describe their operating principles
  • Identifying pilot devices both physically and schematically and describe their operating principles
  • Interpret motor control wiring, connection, and ladder diagrams
  • Select and size contactors and relays for use in specific electrical motor control systems
  • Select and size pilot devices for use in specific electrical motor control systems
  • Connect motor controllers for specific applications according to National Electrical Code® (NEC®)requirements
