Electronics and electrical components are a central part of electric circuits. Resistors, diodes, leds, thyristors, transistors and microcircuits can be found almost everywhere in a vehicle. A mechanic has to understand the function of the components and circuits, to be able to perform troubleshooting.
- Electronics basics
- Component properties
- Integrated and programmable circuits
- Common electronic components and their functions
- Voltage divider circuits
- Voltage stabilising in electronics
- Rectifying alternating current
- Amplification circuits
- Delay and timer circuits
WHY THIS TRAINING MODULE?
With the help of electronics, vehicles electrical systems have become more complex and they are also programmable. When troubleshooting a vehicle, the mechanic faces multiple types of connections and electronics implementation. With this training module you will obtain knowledge that is widely applicable outside automotive technology.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
In this study, you will get familiarised with the components used in electronics, their properties and how they can be utilised. With detailed animations you get to control the function of the components, and you understand the controlling effects, such as the brightness of a light bulb, or how long it is illuminated.
In the last study of this module, common electronics circuits are covered. With the help of these, you can execute different sensor circuits, even out voltage fluctuations, amplifying a weak control signal to a strong actuator current or delay a components function.
