Mechatronics: Fundamentals of Sensor Technology
Tuesday, May 28 @ 5:00 PM - Tuesday, July 2 @ 8:00 PM
Learn the fundamentals of Sensor Technology. As manufacturing and industry becomes increasingly automated, the understanding of sensors is critical. Sensors are eyes, ears, touch, and feel of automated systems. Students will be introduced to the various sensors common in the industrial auto-mation field. Hands on training and examples are used to demonstrate the general operational principles of different sensors with a focus on the selection of the right sensor, its connection, the correct setting and functional checking. Successful completers will receive an NC3 credential in Fundamentals of Sensor Technology.
Mechatronics courses require previous experience. If you do not have previous experience with mechatronics or advanced technology, it is strongly recommended that the Fundamental courses are taken in the following order: Electricity, Mechanical Systems, Fluid Power, Sensors, PLC, and Robotics..
