SOE 204 - Direct Digital Control 1
3 Lecture Hours
Prerequisites: SOE 101 and SOE 111 or a 1 yr. Electrical or related Control Experience.
This is an introductory course that provides training in the fundamental principles of direct digital/programmable logic controllers. In the course, students will cover DDC and PLC procedures, installations, and controllers in a system format.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Recognize and explain DDC/PLC Controls, Safety, Electrical Shock, Electrical Properties, Current, Voltage Resistance, Grounding, Grounding Systems, Static Electric Charges, NEC Enclosures and all OSHA Electrical Safety Procedures.
- Identify PLC Problems, Voltage, DC Voltage, Polarity, AC Voltage, Ratings, Current, Series and Parallel Circuits and Voltage Drops.
- List Electrical Symbols and Diagrams, Programming Symbols, Pictorial Drawings, Wiring Diagrams, Line Diagrams and Schematics.
- Explain Programmable Logic Controllers, Input and Output Sections, Programming Devices, Random Access Memory and Operating Cycles.
- Explain in detail: Timers and Counters.
- DDC and Electrical Safety
