This course introduces applications of electrically-driven positioners that were previously studied in the programmable logic controller (PLC) and variable frequency drives (VFDs) and servos courses. Electrically driven positioning systems are compared with hydraulically and pneumatically actuated positioning systems. Students will learn to recognize special safety and installation requirements for equipment that operates autonomously. Lab work for the CNC component will take place in the BCIT machine shop. For the introduction to robotics, students will be required to purchase a controller and small servo motors that will ultimately engage a robotic device in a BCIT lab.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
