Instrumentation and PLC

Course Code: MECH 365

Academic Year: 2021-2022

This course builds upon the mechanical, electrical and controls knowledge obtained from previous courses. It focuses upon industrial instrumentation and the measurement of temperature, pressure, level and flow in a process. During this course, the student is routinely required to integrate a measuring instrument to the analog I/O of a PLC and develop the necessary math calculations and software for the PLC and HMI to display the measured value (process variable).
