Study providing a foundation in industrial automation and control (input/output devices). Specific product experience with high end I/O devices includes, but is not limited to, the design and use of sensors, final control elements, recorders, operator interfaces, and electronic controllers. Study includes the principals, methods, and rationale for combining remote sensing and actuation with modern communication techniques to effectively monitor and control industrial processes. Automatic timing, control, and communications offer a challenging and accelerated opportunity that prepare the student for the needs of industry. The concept of front end engineering is explored. 4 Credits (3 Lecture - 3 Lab) Prerequisite(s): ELT234 and ELT235. Corequisite(s): ELT245. Spring Only.
