In all control systems, inputs pass information to the decision-making controller, which then passes information to output devices. The manner in which this “information-passing” process works varies with the type and complexity of the control system. This course will provide an overview of some different types of control systems, as well as some basic concepts that apply to control system networks.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the layout and operation of some common networked control systems.
  • Describe how information is coded as digital data for network transmission.
  • Identify factors that can affect the speed at which signals can be sent across a network.
  • Describe the various layers of network protocol.
