The Best Multimeter Tutorial in The World (How to use & Experiments)

This video compares a 10 dollar to a 170 dollar multimeter and shows the average person how to use the voltage, current, resistance, continuity, diode and battery options. I also cover safety concerns and run all tests simultaneous with both multimeters.   This video covers: Difference between 3 and 4 probe options on a multimeter.   Tests include: * Voltage of Battery (DC) * Voltage of Outlet (AC) — discover something interesting in one of my outlets — discover a SERIOUS hazard with the 10 dollar meter * Current of a toaster (LIVE) * Resistor test * Metal tape test?…

How to do Electrical Troubleshooting of Electrical Motor Control Circuit

This video uses Electrical Troubleshooting Simulation software to teach you how to troubleshoot an electrical motor control circuit. At the end is just an example how our software uses real world work order system to track student while doing electrical troubleshooting with our simulation software, and the detailed analysis report. (helps student learn better ways to troubleshoot.)  

How Are Field Devices Wired to PLCs? – Part 2

As the devices in your home need power to operate, so do the modules within your control system. In this video, we talk about the different ways to find the information needed in order to properly power your modules.   This detail explains that the power wiring may differ based on the field devices that you are wiring as well such as two and four wire transmitters.   We discuss the different front connectors that are used for different module types and which terminals to use for your power wiring based on specific types of field devices and the information…

How Are Field Devices Wired to PLCs? – Part 1

Have you ever wondered how the digital and analog signals, coming from devices such as valves or sensors, are connected to the PLC’s input and output modules? In this video, using a practical example, you’re going to learn exactly how these field devices are wired and connected to the PLC’s input and output modules.  

Servo Basic Concepts

A practical overview of AC servo systems and their implementation is presented by Yaskawa. Aimed at the technical person who is new to the world of servos, this video 1) defines what a servo is and examines its components, 2) explores how a servo works within a motion control system, 3) the concept of a servo “axis”, 4) system power up, 5) directional movement, 6) over-travel limit switches 7) distance and position, 8) homing, 9) actuator types.  

Use Arduino to Switch Power On and Off!

Mike picked up a $10 SainSmart 8 Channel DC 5V Relay Module, hooked it up to an Arduino micro controller (a Raspberry Pi should work, too!) and the next thing you know he’s remotely controlling 8 electrical devices… it’s like building an 8 channel remote, each relay on the board can handle some serious juice, up to 10A 230V AC, 30V 10A DC. It’s super easy to set up. Learn how in the video!
