Solid State Electronics for Elevators II

Location: 
Park West High School, 525 West 50th Street, New York, NY.
Length: 
144 hours (36 weeks).
Dates: 
Version 1: February 1988 - August 1993.* Version 2: September 1993 - August 2000.
Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Version 1 and 2: Students will be able to: demonstrate application of basic electrical concepts; construct appropriate digital or control projects; and wire and test industrial control circuits using silicon controlled rectifiers (SCR's) and op-amps.

Instruction: 

Version 1: Topics include: review of basic electricity; linear and non-linear components and solid state devices; voltage; current; resistance; magnetism; series dropping resistors; voltage dividers; potentiometers; variable resistors and rheostats; capacitors; diodes; rectifiers; silicon controlled rectifiers; transistors; logic gates; integrated circuits; hoists motors, motor generator sets (DC/DC and AC/DC) and tach generators; analog and digital signals; coils and transformers; lamps and light emitting diodes; logic gates; TTL logic; timers; operational amplifiers; the Hall effect; power supplies; flip flops; counters; counting systems; motor speed control; digital to analog circuits; soldering; safety circuit development; thermistors. Laboratory sessions cover estimating parallel resistances, voltage dividers, transistors, logic gates, TTL logic, timers, silicon controlled rectifiers, Hall effect, counters, and motor speed control. Version 2: Topics include: review of basic electricity; linear and non-linear components and solid state devices; voltage; current; resistance; magnetism; series dropping resistors; voltage dividers; potentiometers; variable resistors and rheostats; capacitors; diodes; rectifiers; silicon controlled rectifiers; transistors; logic gates; integrated circuits; lamps and light emitting diodes; logic gates; TTL logic; timers; operational amplifiers; the Hall effect; power supplies; flip flops; counters; counting systems; motor speed control; digital to analog circuits; soldering; safety circuit development; thermistors. Laboratory sessions cover primarily lay-out and construction of a logic probe using two op-amps or other similar project.

Credit recommendation: 

Version 1: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours (3 lecture, 1 laboratory) as Digital Controls or Digital Computers and 4 semester hours (3 lecture, 1 laboratory) as Industrial Electronics and 1 semester hour as a laboratory in Tool Skills or Computer Projects in Electromechanical Engineering Technology or Electrical Construction and Maintenance (6/88). NOTE: 1,000 hours of on-the-job practice were not considered in the credit recommendation for this course. Version 2: In the associate degree/certificate category, 1 semester hour as a laboratory in Electronic Fabrication and 3 semester hours in Industrial Electronics (7/93 revalidation) (8/94 revalidation) (9/99 revalidation). *NOTE: The current version of this course, dating from September 2000, appears in the preceding section.
