COVID-19 updates and fall semester information.
This course is comprised of lab and lecture components. In lab, students will learn how to assemble and wire an industrial control panel from scratch using a complete set of electrical schematics. The control panel includes a micro-level Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), fwd/rev motor starter, ethernet switch and associated motor controls devices to operate three phase and single-phase industrial motors. Students will wire, label and test all control and power circuits required in the design. The lab component is complemented by a lecture section where students will analyze the engineering design of the electrical schematics using CSA standards C22.1: Canadian Electrical Code and C22.2 No. 286-17: Industrial Control Panels and Assemblies.
