  • Course description
    Level One
    DRWG1430     Drawings And Schematics - IMM

    Description: The successful completion of this module will enable the student to read and interpret mechanical drawings and trade-related blueprints and generate basic drawings.
    Hours: 60
    Credits: 4

    ELEC1080     Electricity And Motor Controls
    Description: Prior to PLC, motor control was handled by hardwiring motor starters which the student will become familiar with before working on PLCs. Basic circuit wiring is also studied.

    The course is also an introduction to Electric Motor Controls and Programmable Logic Controllers, as well as number systems. The design criteria for the first programmable controller was specified in 1968 by the Hydramatic Division of the General Motors Corporation. The primary goal was to eliminate the high cost associated with inflexible, relay-controlled systems. The specifications required a solid-state system with computer flexibility, suited to survive the industrial environment, to be easily programmed and maintained by Plant Engineers and Technicians, and last, but not least, to be reusable. Such a control system would reduce machine downtime and provide expandability for the future.
