EIC225 Programmable Controllers

This course studies the use of solid-state control equipment, primarily the programmable controller and associated solid-state sensors to control equipment, machinery or complete processes. Includes concepts of solid-state logic, characteristics of solid-state sensors; conversions of relay logic control systems to programmable control systems; and microprocessor-based systems and remote control of processes. Enables the student to design, implement and test control systems in the laboratory to meet specifically-assigned control problems. Emphasizes accuracy, safety and National Electrical Code requirements.
