Understanding Electrical Schematics
 
These basic tutorials start by teaching you electrical symbols and electrical schematic design to help you understand the production machines you use in your plant. The lessons are designed to help you understand how to use an electrical schematic to work your way through any problem that may occur during the manufacturing process. Being able to read and understand an electrical schematic is the fastest way to solve an electrical problem.
 
Using the Tutorials
 
We suggest that you start with the tutorial named Reading Electrical Schematics to help you understand what some of the electrical symbols represent, and how the electrical schematics work. Then move on to the tutorials for the Finish Roller, RoofTrackerTM, and Cyber® A\T, in that order. You should stick to the order suggested, because the tutorials become progressively more complicated.
