The learner will understand the operation and configuration of various types of PLC output modules and how they're used.
Fundamentals of a DC Motor
By Terry Bartelt
Learners study the interaction between the conductors of the stator and the armature inside a DC motor, which causes the shaft to rotate. A short quiz completes the activity.
Basic Elements of a Plastics Extruder
By Craig Hemken
In this animated object, learners examine the parts of a plastics extruder. A quiz completes the activity.
Crank Slider Velocity
By James Bourassa
In this animated object, learners identify the basic parts and operation of a crank slider mechanism. They also follow the steps to use rotational input velocity to determine the linear output velocity of a slider component.
Conductors, Insulators and Resistors
In this animated activity, learners examine why various materials are conductors, insulators, or resistors of current. A short quiz completes the learning object.
Sequencer Output Instruction for the SLC-500 PLC
Learners examine the fundamental concepts of sequencer output instruction. A simulated example shows a sequencer in operation.
Continuous Cycling Tuning Example
By Craig Hemken, Terry Bartelt
In this interactive object, learners follow the steps required for the Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling method. The process identification procedure is performed, calculations are made, and the proper PID values are programmed into the controller.
