As technological advances are being made at an ever-increasing rate, it should come as no surprise that older, electromechanical control strategies are quickly taking a backseat to newer electronics-based controls. Although mechanical and electromechanical controls are still found in the field, newly manufactured equipment, for the most part, incorporates at least some type of electronic or digital control circuitry.
Digital controls utilize electronic components such as transistors, capacitors, resistors and diodes to create circuits. These circuits, in turn, control the operation of a system’s main components.
This course provides a basic overview of electronic components that make up more complicated printed circuit boards. Other course topics include circuit logic, rectifiers, half-wave rectifiers, full-wave rectifiers, and electronic expansion valve (EEV) stepper motor control circuits.
Upon completion of the course, participants will earn a CEU certificate.
