Industrial Electrical Controls Fundamentals

This course is designed to provide knowledge and skills required to install, maintain and troubleshoot machine controls. Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned through a variety of hands-on exercises. These exercises focus on the skills introduced in each lesson.

To complete the exercises, you will use a basic electrical training workstation. Because the basic skills taught in the course apply to all electrical control applications, the hands-on exercises permit you to apply what you have learned in your workplace environment. At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the safety considerations that must be observed when installing, checking or locking out electrical equipment
  • Define uses and functions of input and output devices, relays, and motors
  • Demonstrate the reading of schematic diagrams and logic
  • Define an open and short condition and perform voltage and current measurements
  • Demonstrate the proper use of the following test equipment in lab to measure voltage, current, resistance and continuity: VOM, DVM, Multi-meters, continuity tester and amp probe
  • Approximate secondary voltage, secondary current and primary current of a transformer when given its turns ratio, primary voltage and secondary load
  • Identify the proper wiring configurations of a control transformer’s primary current for 240V and 480V operation
  • Approximate a transformer’s maximum primary current for 480V operation, using the nameplate information

Note: Registration is based on current availability and receipt of payment. Your local McNaughton-McKay Training Coordinator will contact you regarding these details. The enrollment process is not complete until you receive course registration confirmation.
