Title: Module N: PLC-Controlled Operations PDF
Url: http://www.meteconline.org/files/pdf/Mecom%20Mod%20N.pdf
Publisher: National Center for Advanced Technological Education
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 N's Automated Soft Drink Filling Line project focuses on process control, production, and sensor measurement by a PLC System.

The industrial project involves setting up a PLC-controlled operation and simulation for mixing a soft drink product.

Target Audience: 2-4 Year College Students

Self Evaluation data: Excellent instructional module to introduce students to the integrated curriculum model. Can be used to support a new or existing science and technology course or program.
