DG3134 Applications of Programmable Logic Controllers

Description

The aim of this unit is to introduce you to programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and examine where and why they are used. The unit explores what a PLC is and gives examples and solution programs. The teaching pack is written in three sections to coincide with the three learning outcomes and Higher National Unit Specifications of the Scottish Qualifications Authority. The first section gives a brief overview of what PLCs are and why they are used before explaining their basic architecture. Section 2 describes the operation of basic software commands and allows you to use these within simple programs. The third section uses the knowledge gained in the previous sections to allow you to develop programs to simulate the control of industrial processes. Outcomes There are three learning outcome

DG5134 Printed Circuit Board Design, Manufacture and Test

Description

Electronic and electrical modules and subsystems consist of interconnected components which perform tasks and action to meet the aims of the systems of which they form a part. Many of these systems are familiar to us, for example allowing us to switch on and control a television, withdraw money from an automated teller machine (ATM) or display a document like this one on a computer. You can probably think of some other systems we use. Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are the most common means by which these electronic circuits and systems are constructed. In this unit you will learn about the basic techniques involved in PCB design, manufacture and test, and you will also have the opportunity to practice the skills required to produce a PCB. Outcomes 1. Use an electronic design software packa
