MEC 617

Manufacturing System Control

This course introduces the fundamental elements of industrial automation control logic systems using fluid power and microprocessor based circuits, standard sensor technology and peripheral equipment. Industrial operation circuits are studied and designed using Boolean Algebra for the combinational and sequential logic requirements. These circuits are constructed and tested on pneumatic and electronic-pneumatic (i.e. Programmable Logic Controller) equipment. Circuits are documented using ANSI circuit symbology and PLC software.
