Course Description

This unit covers fault finding and repairing analogue applications in electronic control systems. The unit encompasses safe working practices, interpreting diagrams and technical data, applying knowledge of analogue circuits and components to logical fault finding processes, implementing fault rectification, safety and functional testing and reporting work activities and outcomes.
Note.
Examples of analogue applications are power and differential amplifiers, integrators, comparators function generators precision rectifiers, active filters and the like.
