Description

Second part of Instrumentation and Control

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Describe the types of sensors and control system required in specific situations

2.

Design circuits to solve simple signal−conditioning problems, using op−amps and timer circuits

3.

Describe actuator systems including stepper motors, motor speed control

4.

Use LabVIEW software for measurement, instrument control, and process control

5.

Program and use a PLC to provide solutions to a range of control problems

6.

Present technical information in written/graphical form

Indicative Syllabus

 A range of sensors/actuators are examined, along with required signal−conditioning and digital interfacing.  Out[put mechanisms are studied along with an introduction to control systems. PLC and LabVIEW programming is introduced.
