ECMN 224 Industrial Motor Control Wiring

This course offers hands-on experience in the basic wiring and circuit design of AC industrial motor control systems. The course will continue to build upon industrial wiring concepts covered in pervious program courses. The study of motor control will also continue, and new topics introduced will include programmable logic controllers (PLC), operator interface terminals (OIT), SCADA and pneumatics. Students will learn the design, operation, programming and connections of programmable logic controllers (PLC) and how they are used in current industrial settings.

Students complete a series of hands-on assignments that pertain to the particular block of material being covered at that time. These in-class assignments will progress from basic to complex and include the most common connections and applications used in today’s industry. Assignments will conform to National Electric Code standards and safe working habits will be stressed at all times, including the use of lockout/tagout as defined by OSHA standards. Open only to matriculated Electrical Construction and Maintenance students.
