ELEC 216 Mechatronics

4 credits
Continuation of SOLID-STATE I. Covers AC analysis of bipolar small-signal transistors, including computer modeling of circuits. DC/AC analysis of large-signal amplifiers is also included. The course combines lecture sessions with intensive hands-on lab experiments.

Prerequisites: ELEC 116 .

Quarters Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Use both digital and analog Input/Output Modules with a PLC
  • Program Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and embedded systemsfor industrial control and monitoring applications
  • Analyze, implement and test a wide range of sensors and apply transfer functions of a given sensor to correctly program a response from a system
  • Interpret the characteristics and properties of hydraulic systems and solve problems involving hydraulic principles as it pertains to equipment operations and preventative maintenance
  • Interpret the characteristics and properties of pneumatic systems and solve problems involving pneumatic principles as it pertains to equipment operations and preventative maintenance
  • Demonstrate an understanding of control processes such as closed versus open loop, analog versus digital,  and linear versus non linear control systems as it pertains to equipment operation
  • Analyze the basic dynamics of simple mechanical devices (levers, gears, etc.) and interface to electronics control and monitoring systems and circuits
  • Prepare and Maintain parts inventory and preventitive maintenance records and logs
  • Interpret and apply safety codes, policies and practices, and accident prevention procedures
