Q2 2024


Product Description

Finally, overcome your fear and trepidation around electricity and electronics measurement. Gain confidence with 12 VDC, 120VAC and 208VAC circuitry, delta, and wye power systems, grounding, and safety. Learn to confidently measure resistance Ohms, current Amps, and potential Voltage. Confidently express Ohm’s law. Master the use of your digital voltmeter (DVM) multimeter to test continuity, voltage transmission, resistance, capacitance, and amperage draw. Understand cEMF and how it pertains to PSC motor rpm and static pressure on contaminated BSC cabinets. Recognize single-phase and three-phase power circuit differences.

Learn to use a clamp-on ammeter to test motor viability and overheating. Familiarize yourself with control circuits, power circuits, transformers, rectifiers, capacitors, switches, relays, terminal blocks, and connectors. Master troubleshooting of motors, blowers, lighting circuits, relays, circuit boards, membrane switches, speed controls, capacitors, power supplies, and thermal overloads. Learn to troubleshoot airflow and pressure alarms and proper calibration procedures. Interpret electrical schematics and learn to create your own BSC ladder schematic.

Learn to troubleshoot fluorescent, LED, and germicidal lighting systems, including ballasts, starters, and tombstones. Learn to diagnose and repair audible and visual alarms and record speed controller settings for permanent split capacitor (PSC), direct current (DC), electronically communicated (ECM), and three-phase motors. Test circuit breakers, power supplies, transformers, and fuses.

While open for any certifiers, balancers, and facilities personnel, this course is specifically designed for 120V three-wire, 60 Hz, Hot-Neutral-Ground systems such as those found in the United States power grid. While no prior experience in electronics and electricity is required, attendees will be responsible for purchasing and bringing model-specific Digital Voltmeters (Fluke 87 V, true RMS, with Lo-Pass filter). Be sure to allow ample time to acquire this instrumentation prior to the beginning of the class. Inexpensive, substitute test equipment will not be acceptable to carry without prior written permission of the instructor.

This is a very interactive class and participation of all students is required. Your practical field ability will be evaluated during classroom time as you execute specific measurements during the week. An optional, written exam is provided at the completion of the course. Successful completion of the written exam (>97.5% score) will entitle the student to a Certificate of Successful Completion. Students will have up to three successive attempts to complete the exam to satisfaction. Students electing not to complete the final exam will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the completion of the course.
