Control Panels

Electrical Multiskill E3: This module introduces candidates to control circuits where external devices act as interlocks or safety devices and automatic control functions can occur. On successful completion of this module candidates will be able to:

  • use the correct methods for connecting control devices into circuits and glanding and terminating cables in control panels
  • understand and describe the electrical devices that are used in control circuits and interpret how they are used in circuits that control power components
  • gain further practical experience in fault diagnosis particularly in relation to external plant-mounted devices

What you'll learn

The following topics:

  • The correct methods for connecting control devices into circuits
  • Cable glanding and terminating in control panels
  • Further experience in fault diagnosis particularly with external plant mounted devices
  • Control circuit drawings: identifying components and their connection within circuits
  • Fault finding on control circuits
  • The disconnection and reconnection of various types of components
  • The testing of electrical systems involving controls
  • The removal and replacement of externally connected devices

Course Objective

On successful completion of this module, an individual will be able to demonstrate competence in a range of skills including the disconnection and reconnection of various types of components, the testing of electrical systems involving controls and the removal and replacement of externally connected devices.  Candidates will be able to follow control circuit drawings by identifying components and their connection within circuits as an aid to fault finding on control circuits.

Time frame

3 day course.
