Title: Mecomtronics Module D: Electrical and Mechanical Principles PDF
Url: http://www.meteconline.org/files/pdf/Mecom%20Module%20D.pdf
Publisher: National Center for Manufacturing Education (NCME)
Description: Initially developed by NJCATE and a team of math, science, communications and technology faculty, this learning module employs the NJCATE Integrated Curriculum Model to integrate core and technical material. Accessing just-in-time learning concepts in which instructors function as coach/facilitators, the module guides students through core and technical activities built around a main project. Module activities present students with hands-on situations which simulate the workplace both in terms of the knowledge and skills required as well as the ethical concerns they will inevitably address.

Specifically, Module D's Filling Station project focuses on process control and production. Students will learn about power supply, sensors, solenoid valves and interfaces, electronic counters, and a sensor interfaces, and will use this knowledge to:
Construct, test and verify the operation of the DC power supply
Construct and evaluate the performance of the sensors and control system
Assemble a liquid filling station
Connect the binary counter and seven-segment converter to the digital display
Interconnect the system components and verify operation of the filling station according to specifications
Prepare and present a project report

The filling station will have the capability to:
Sense the presence of a container and its contents
Fill it with a pre-determined quantity of liquid
Count the number of containers filled
Display the result

Includes student and instructor guides.

Target Audience
2-4 year College students
