It covers fault-finding of fluid power systems control circuits, maintaining and repairing or replacing system control components, and checking and adjusting the sequence of fluid power system controls. System circuit/components are identified, traced, inspected and operational function is assessed and verified using fluid power principles to predetermined specifications interpreted from data sheets and circuit diagrams.
Where skills beyond the sequencing of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) are required unit MEM10004 Enter and change programmable controller operational parameters and unit MEM10005 Commission programmable controller programs, should be selected as appropriate.
