ELEC1330
Introduction to Instrumentation & Control
This course is an introduction to sensing, instrumentation and control using National Instruments hardware and software (such as MultiSim, LabView, and the MyDAQ). Pre-built applets will be used to input and output data from digital and analog interfaces, make logical decisions based upon input, and data processing. Devices interfacing with this tool may include, but are not limited to photo-electric sensors, servos, and LEDs. Upon completion, students should have a cursory understanding of how National Instruments hardware and software tools can be used for data acquisition, control, and instrumentation environments. (Prerequisite: none) (2 credits: 1 lecture/1 lab)

ELEC2221
Programmable Controllers
This course covers the operation of programmable logic controllers. The hardware and software aspects of the controllers will be explored in the lab. The basic ladder diagram, timer, counter and sequencer instructions will be covered. Additionally, advanced operation and programming of programmable logic controllers, including greater depth of programming, HMI development, and I/O through laboratory instruction will also be covered. Communication between the PLC and Human Machine Interface will also be covered in depth. The master control, data manipulation and control instructions will also be explored. NOTE: This course is equivalent to the combined ELEC 2218 and ELEC 2219 course series. (Prerequisites: ELEC1202, ELEC1204, and ELEC1212 or permission of instructor) (3 credits: 2 lecture/1 lab)
