Addendum to Course Description
Electronics technicians may be called upon to work on robots, production lines, and other electromechanical equipment that combines electronics and mechanical actuators. Mechanical actuators can be motor-based or fluid-based.
Intended Outcomes for the course
Upon completion of the course students should be able to:
- Apply knowledge of linear motion, circular motion, forces, and energy to mechanical assemblies.
- Utilize basic calculations of force, pressure, and temperature in common mechanical assemblies.
Use conservation of energy equations to solve basic mechanical and fluid power problems.
- Demonstrate an understanding of how fluid power devices fit into applications such as robotics, instrumentation, automated production environments, and industrial control.
- Perform calculations to select and size piping and motor actuators in common applications.
- Design simple fluid power circuits for given applications.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Assessment methods are to be determined by the instructor. Typically, in-class quizzes, online quizzes,exams and weekly homework assignments will be used.
