Mechatronics Level 1
The course introduces the various control media used in automation systems and explains the operation of some of the components used to allow the delegates to compare control methods.
Our mechatronics training covers the control of pneumatic actuators using pneumatic and electrical signalling devices together with the use of PLC's. The construction and operation of valves and sensors is investigated and used in the construction of control circuits.
All personnel involved in the design, installation, maintenance and servicing of systems that contain pneumatic, electro-pneumatic and PLC equipment.
- SI units and conversions
- Symbols for pneumatic and electrical equipment
- Function and operation of pneumatic valves
- Speed and pressure control
- Comparisons of pneumatic, electric and PLC control
- Logic functions
- Proximity sensors
- Programing PLCs in Ladder diagram, Statement list
- System documentation
- Sequence control
General engineering background.
