ECMN 278 Industrial Motor Control Wiring: Part II

This course offers hands on experience in the basic wiring and circuit design of AC industrial motor control systems. The course will build upon its prerequisite, ECMN 277 . The study of motor control will continue as well as the introduction to programmable logic controllers (PLC), operator interface terminals (OIT), SCADA and pneumatics. Students will learn the design, operation, programming and connections of modern day PLCs and how they are used in industry. Students complete a series of hands-on lab assignments that pertain to the particular block of material being covered at the time. These assignments will progress from basic to complex and include the most common connections and applications used in industry. The assignments are based upon the National Electric Code, and safe working habits will be stressed at all times.
