In this animated object, learners examine the fundamental operation of a diac including how it is turned on and turned off. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Who Wants to Be an "Engin-aire?" -- Ferrous Metals and Alloys
By Bryan LaVigne
Learners answer questions about ferrous metals and alloys using a game show format. Immediate feedback is provided.
Sinking/Sourcing Output Module
Learners examine the sourcing and sinking of conventional current at a PLC output module and the type of field device to which it is connected. This interactive learning object includes six quiz questions.
Applying the Motor Voltage
In this animated lesson, learners examine the rectifier circuitry in a DC variable speed drive that supplies the voltages to the field coil and armature.
Methods of Producing Electricity
In this learning activity you'll review the six different ways in which electricity is produced: chemical, friction, heat, light, magnetism, and pressure.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Multiplication of Force by a Hydraulic System
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
In this animated object, learners examine how PLC up/down-counters are used to control an automated parking lot gate.
In this animated object, learners read about hydrostatic pressure and observe how it is used to measure the level of a material in a container.
