Industrial Electricity I Certificate ReviewThis course is a review course for PMMI's (The Association for Packaging Processing Technologies) Industrial Electricity I Certificate. This certificate covers basic safety practices for voltages up to 600 volts and knowledge of voltage, current and power in AC and DC circuits, circuit analysis of series and parallel loads, and basic understanding of resistors, capacitors, and inductors. It applies these fundamentals to simple applications that would be found in residential, light commercial and simple industrial use. Candidates should be able to interpret and troubleshoot circuits used for lighting, across the line 3 phase motor starting, and simple relay logic with devices such as control transformers, fuses & circuit breakers, pushbuttons & selector switches, pilot lights & alarm devices, solenoids, 3 phase motor starters, motor overloads, limit switches, and combinations of control relays to perform basic logic functions. Candidates should be familiar with simple wiring practices for using these devices and with component level troubleshooting of these devices. Upon the completion of this course and through a unique industry partnership with PMMI, students will be able to take the Industrial Electricity I test and have the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized certificate while at Hennepin Technical College. A basic knowledge of industrial electricity is needed to understand the basic operation of all type of commercial and industrial equipment and to gain further knowledge of more complex packaging machines and systems. This basic knowledge of industrial electricity would be expected of an entry level electrician working in facilities maintenance or assisting in the assembly, test, startup, troubleshooting, maintenance, repair or upgrade of basic packaging machinery modules. This course is aimed at entry level technicians who may be involved in the assembly, test, startup, troubleshooting, maintenance, repair or upgrade of basic packaging machinery modules. This is a review course and it is assumed the student has taken previous automation courses or has basic knowledge of the topics to be covered. 3ARET1175 or Instructor approvalARET2320View

After completion of this course students will understand more complex motor starting circuits such as jogging, hand-off-automatic, reversing, and reduced voltage starting. They will become familiar with time-based, count-based and sequential control of multiple output loads utilizing control relay logic and automatic input devices such as limit, flow and pressure switches to provide feedback. They will understand basic electro-fluid power circuits where relay logic is used to operate devices such as pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders through electrically piloted directional control valves. Basic understanding of the various types of electronic sensors, timers and counters used in industrial control is required. Students become familiar with the sizing and installation of various types of electrical conductors and raceways used in or around industrial machinery and will understand how to properly wire an industrial control panel. Finally, students will develop an understanding of basic troubleshooting techniques and practices, not only for the individual components but also for systems of components. This advanced knowledge of industrial electricity and control systems is needed to understand the complex operations of machines and systems that might be used for an electro-mechanical packaging line. Upon the completion of this course and through a unique industry partnership with PMMI, students will be able to take the Industrial Electricity II test and have the opportunity to earn a nationally recognized certificate while at Hennepin Technical College. This is a review course and it is assumed the student has taken previous automation courses or has basic knowledge of the topics to be covered.3ARET1180 and ARET2320 or Instructor approvalARET2330View
