Prerequisite: Knowledge of industrial machine controls
This class will provide general background theory, applications information and programming practice for
mechanics, technicians and engineers who specify or maintain PLC-based systems.
Prerequisite: Basic Allen-Bradley PLCs (ELEC-6078) or equivalent
In this training, participants will receive an introduction to the “Logix” family of Allen-Bradley
Controllers. Topics include an overview of Logix family hardware, an introduction to the RS5000
software, basic ladder logic programming, time, counter, math, compare, tags, organizing projects,
uploading/downloading, online editing, and more.
This three-day seminar covers electrical fundamentals from a troubleshooting perspective. Learn what to expect in operational series, parallel and combination circuits through measuring voltage, resistance and current flow with digital multimeters. Topics include electrical terminology, Ohm’s Law, schematic reading, components, wiring, and safe work practices.
Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC‑6075) and Motor Controls & Relay Logic (ELEC‑6076) or equivalent
Use training equipment with industry-standard devices to improve electrical troubleshooting skills. Includes proven tips and techniques for experts and beginners.
Participants with industrial experience learn the principles of basic pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits using a computer layout and simulation program. After any problems with the simulated pneumatic circuits have been diagnosed and fixed, then circuits are constructed and operated on the trainer board using actual valves, cylinders and compressed air.
This course is designed to increase skill levels for engineers, technicians, sales representatives, and anyone involved with manufacturing, process controls, energy generation or automation. Training includes lecture and hands-on usage of actual devices such as photo-electric, inductive, capacitive, and temperature sensors. Interface to PLCs and control techniques will be covered using simulation trainer consoles. Such sensors are keys to green building automation.
This class helps prepare apprentices for the electrician’s exam by studying the National Electrical Code (NEC) book.
Prerequisite: Electrical Fundamentals (ELEC‑6075) or equivalent
Three-phase motors, motor starters, wiring, relays, timers, schematics, wiring diagrams, industrial symbology, relay logic, and timer circuits will be covered using discussion and hands-on training equipment.
VFDs are increasingly used in electric motor speed control applications. This course gives maintenance
technicians, specifiers and supervisors insights to VFD theory and operation, installation
considerations, problem solving in existing systems, and familiarity with typical setup parameters.
Approximately 50 percent of the course will be hands-on with learners making wiring connections and
