Description

This module is a progress from Mechatronics 101 it introduces the student to more advanced control of pneumatic circuits.

PLC systems will be explored.

Students will be introduced to the use of robotics technology in industry.

Students will learn how to teach a robot (5 axis and 6 axis) positions using a hand held controller.

Students will be introduced to graphical programming techniques using Labiew, including data

acquisition.

 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

The student will be introduced to the techniques required to program PLCs.

2.
