Learners view practical examples of how a Hall-effect sensor is used.
Thevenin Resistance: Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
Students work five practice problems to determine the Thevenin resistance of DC circuits.
The Timing Functions of Optical Sensors
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners examine the switch settings for the on-delay, off-delay, and one-shot timing functions of an optical sensor. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Impedance: Parallel to Series Conversion
Students view the formulas to be used to convert a parallel impedance to a series impedance.
Students examine the four factors that affect resistance of a wire: temperature, length, diameter, and the type of material from which it is made. 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.
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
The learner will understand how to correctly wire a three-wire sinking and sourcing sensor.
Displacement Level Sensors
In this animated object, learners study how displacement level sensors are used to measure the level of liquid in a tank.
In this animated object, learners observe the operation of a J thermocouple with a cold junction. A table is used to convert the voltage it produces to a corresponding temperature. A brief quiz completes the activity.
By John Casey, Terry Bartelt
In this animated learning object, learners examine how an ultrasonic flowmeter measures the flow of liquids through a pipe using ultrasonic sound waves. A short quiz completes the activity.
