Title: Mecomtronics Module H: Electrical and Mechanical Power Systems PDF
Url: http://www.meteconline.org/files/pdf/Mecom%20Module%20H.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 H focuses on electrical and mechanical power systems and process control. Student technicians will construct a conveyor system to transport radio-labeled pharmaceuticals from one side of the plant to the other where the loading bay is located. The transportation of the pharmaceutical must be done within a minimum amount of time in order to preserve the usable lifetime of the drug. In order to determine the exact time of production, the speed of the conveyor system must be precisely maintained. To maintain the precise delivery time, a variable speed motor control circuit will be employed to drive the conveyor belt.

Includes student and instructor guides.
