Hands-On Training

Industrial Electrical Controls Fundamentals

Course Number-MFG213

Course Purpose:

  • This course is designed to provide knowledge and skills required to install, maintain and troubleshoot machine controls.At the completion of this course, you will be able to:
  •  
  • Define the safety considerations that must be observed when installing, checking or locking out electrical equipment

  • Define uses and functions of input and output devices, relays, and motors

  • Demonstrate the reading of schematic diagrams and logic

  • Define an open and short condition and perform voltage and current measurements

  • Demonstrate the proper use of the following test equipment in lab to measure voltage, current, resistance and continuity: VOM, DVM, Multi-meters, continuity tester and amp probe

  • Approximate secondary voltage, secondary current and primary current of a transformer when given its turns ratio, primary voltage and secondary load

  • Identify the proper wiring configurations of a control transformer’s primary current for 240V and 480V operation

  • Approximate a transformer’s maximum primary current for 480V operation, using the nameplate information
