MET 200 - Robotics and Motion Control

4 Credit Hours

This course provides the student with a background in the programming and application of industrial robots and general purpose synchronized multi-axis motion control. Whereas in Rotating Electrical Machines the student learned how various types of motors and drives operate to create motion in a single axis, this course expands upon those concepts by combining multiple axes of motion to perform useful functions such as creating a flexible manufacturing system utilizing robots. In Introduction to PLCs, the student learned how to apply programming to create sequences of events. This course broadens that knowledge by using different programming languages to initiate and control motion sequences. The student will learn how to implement electronically many of the simple machines introduced in Industrial Mechanics 1 and 2 such as gear drives, belt drives, line shafts and cams. This course also introduces the student to techniques and products that are based upon IEC international standards and discusses the concepts of standards-based control.

Prerequisite(s): MET 140A MET 140B , MET 160 

Students are granted credit for Mechatronics Engineering Technology (MET) courses by articulation after completion of the course competencies through courses offered by RACC’s Workforce and Economic Development/Community Education Division. Students should contact the division to obtain information on course offerings.
