Learners view an animation showing the one-shot operation of a programmable logic controller.
Voltage and Resistors
By Tim Tewalt
This is an animated troubleshooting exercise that takes voltage measurements to determine the fault of three different series circuits. There are six review questions that enable the learner to determine the effectiveness of the troubleshooting presentation.
Series Circuit Analysis Practice Problems: Circuit #4
By Patrick Hoppe
In this interactive object, learners solve for the current through each resistor, the voltage across each resistor, and the power dissipated.
Series RL Circuit Vector and Circuit Analyzer
By James Bourassa, John Rosz
Learners alter circuit variables and view how these changes affect circuit voltage, current, reactance, impedance, and phase angle.
The TI-83 Plus Calculator: The Power Function
Learners examine how to raise a number to a power using the TI-83 Plus calculator. Sample problems are given using both real and complex numbers.
Selector Switch Labeling
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners examine the method of interpreting the truth tables for two-position and three-position selector switches on ladder logic circuit diagrams.
In this animated object, learners examine how PLC up/down-counters are used to control an automated parking lot gate.
PLC Timer Instructions
Learners examine the animated Timer-On Delay instruction and the Timer-Off Delay instruction of a PLC timer. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Basic DC Electrical Motor Construction
Learners examine the internal parts of a DC electrical motor and then text their knowledge in a drag-and-drop exercise.
Ladder Logic Schematic Symbol Flashcards
By John Rosz, Terry Fleischman
This interactive object is designed to help learners memorize the schematic symbols used in ladder logic diagrams. Learners quiz themselves using electronic flashcards.
You'll focus on terminology related to designing a hypothetical program.
