Amcanion cyffredinol

This unit has been designed to cover Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) concepts and their applications in engineering. A practical hands-on approach to learning with an emphasis on investigative practical work has been adopted throughout the unit. The unit initially focuses on the design characteristics and internal architecture of programmable logic control systems before examining programming techniques.

Cynnwys cwrs

Indicative content includes:

  • Design and operational characteristics of programmable logic control systems.
  • Internal architecture of PLCs
  • Types of input and output devices.
  • Types of communication link used.
  • Logic programming techniques.
  • Testing and debugging programmes.

Meini Prawf

trothwy

Equivalent to 50%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.

ardderchog

Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.

da

Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.

Canlyniad dysgu
