Learners study how a hydrocarbon gas sensor operates and why it is used. A short quiz completes the activity.
Pneumatic Cylinder Flow Control
By Terry Bartelt
Learners use animated needle valves and check valves to change the speed of a pneumatic cylinder as it extends and retracts. A brief quiz completes the learning object.
The Zener Diode: Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
Students complete 10 practice problems. These deal with the determination of series current, zener current, and load current, and if the zener diode is operating in the breakdown region.
Learners view an animated presentation showing how the pH level of a cleaning solution is controlled in a closed-loop system in a manufacturing setting. A quiz completes the activity.
Transfer Functions: The RL Low Pass Filter
Learners read how the transfer function for a RC low pass filter is developed. The transfer function is used in Excel to graph the Vout. The circuit is also simulated in Electronic WorkBench and the resulting Bode plot is compared to the graph from Excel.
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.
Incremental Encoder Quadrature Modes
Learners study the method of using more than one track and quadrature modes to improve the resolution of an optical encoder. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this animated activity, learners examine the operation of an ultrasonic sensor and the procedure to perform zero and span adjustments. A brief quiz completes the object.
