Industrial Wiring & Motor Controls
Flint Hills Technical College
July 27 @ 8:00 am - July 29 @ 4:30 pm
With this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn the basic fundamentals of Industrial Electricity. We will cover volts, amps, and ohms – what do they mean and how do you measure them. Attendees will learn wiring techniques and wiring/ladder diagrams for everything from turning a light on and off to operating a 3-phase electric motor using multiple control devices.
Attendees will learn the basics of measuring volts, amps, and ohms using a digital multimeter and adhering to all appropriate safety and PPE guidelines. Attendees will not only learn how to perform these in a lab setting, but how to present and assess the lessons in their classroom as well.
