Description

This module looks at applications of analogue electronics with an emphasis on the interfacing of industrial sensors and building drive circuits for small d.c., stepper and brushless d.c. motors.

Learning Outcomes

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

1.

Understand the principles of encoders, optoisolators, optoelectronic and Hall effect devices.

2.

Interface proximity sensors and actuators to a microcontroller / PLC.

3.

Design and build signal conditioning circuits using op-amps.

4.

Construct drive circuits for small d.c. motors using bipolar transistors and power MOSFETs. 

5.

Build and test circuits using DACs and ADCs.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

It is proposed that a workplace engagement component will be introduced to this module via a guest lecturer from industry, an industrial site visit or a work-based assignment where possible.
