Course Purpose
This course is designed to provide knowledge and skills required to install,
maintain and troubleshoot machine controls.
At the completion of this course, you will be able to:
 Define the safety considerations that must be observed when installing,
checking or locking out electrical equipment
 Define uses and functions of input and output devices, relays, and motors
 Demonstrate the reading of schematic diagrams and logic
 Define an open and short condition and perform voltage and current
 Demonstrate the proper use of the following test equipment in lab to measure
voltage, current, resistance and continuity: VOM, DVM, Multi-meters,
continuity tester and amp probe
 Approximate secondary voltage, secondary current and primary current of a
transformer when given its turns ratio, primary voltage and secondary load
 Identify the proper wiring configurations of a control transformer’s primary
current for 240V and 480V operation
 Approximate a transformer’s maximum primary current for 480V operation,
using the nameplate information

Who Should Attend
Individuals who are responsible to install, maintain and
troubleshoot electromechanical machine controls should
attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following
prerequisite is required:
 Familiar with basic electricity
Technology Requirements
All technology is provided for student use in the
classroom by Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary
for students to bring any technology with them when
attending this course.
Student Materials
To enhance and facilitate your learning experience, the
following materials are provided as part of the course
 Student Manual, which contains the key concepts,
definitions, and examples presented in the course and
includes hands-on exercises.
Hands-On Practice
Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to
practice the skills you have learned through a variety of
hands-on exercises. These exercises focus on the skills
introduced in each lesson.
To complete the exercises, you will use a basic electrical
training workstation. Because the basic skills taught in the
course apply to all electrical control applications, the
hands-on exercises permit you to apply what you have
learned in your workplace environment.
