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.
