INEL 50010 - Electrical Control Wiring

0.42 CR
An electrician in an industrial setting is often called on to wire control panels and operator station panels on machines. There are many things that an electrician must know before beginning this task. For example, an electrician must be able to read and interpret electrical prints. An electrician must also be able to select and install terminal blocks in the panels. In addition, an electrician should be able to determine the number of wires that need to be run between the panels as well as what wire colors are needed. In this module, the student will learn how to do all of these things. Learning how to use an electrical print to determine these details will help the student when the student actually wires a circuit in the next module.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Draw, plan, and interpret electrical plans and symbols used in industrial control applications.
  2. Identify, size, and install electrical control equipment associated with industrial electrical installations in accordance with industry standards.
  3. Demonstrate safe practices and procedures with tools, materials, and industry-accepted test equipment.
  4. Interpret and use ladder and wiring diagrams, symbols, and schematics.
  5. Demonstrate and describe the use of relays, contactors, motor starters, and pilot devices in electrical control circuits.
