CI1401 - Industrial Controls
As industrial process technologists, graduates must understand how industrial controllers work. While they are not expected to maintain the industrial controllers, it is important that the learner receive enough hands-on programming experience such that they gain confidence in the systems and hardware. Learning the details about a specific control system, in this case Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), is an effective way of gaining this confidence. Also introduced are variable speed drive technologies, with an emphasis on variable frequency (AC) drives and applications. The learner applies the concepts learned to specific systems, processes and equipment found in manufacturing operations.
