Advanced Engine Management

 Duration: 2 Days

 Cost: £395.00+vat per candidate

 Course Aim:-

 Building on the knowledge, skills and techniques gained from the Fi1 Introduction to

Fuel Injection systems course, the content of this course will go deeper into the

understanding of how a control unit works and interacts with its associated circuits.

Looking at the power and ground circuit and moving onto each type of sensor and

actuator circuit the delegate will be able to test each and understand where the

thresholds are for each type and check it for the Control unit’s impedance.

Extensive practical sessions will used throughout the course with on-vehicle testing

to back up the theory.

On completion of the course the delegate will have an in depth understanding of how

control unit internal workings and the circuits it monitors or operates. Be able to

identify what types of circuits are connected to the control unit and be able to test

those circuits for their threshold and the Control unit internal impedance for

diagnosis.

A good understanding of electrical circuits and testing prior to attending will enable

the delegate to absorb more of this course’s content.

 Subjects Covered:-

·         Internal construction of control units

·         Power supply circuit

·         Outline of Sensor circuits

·         Linear Sensors

·         Logic Sensors

·         Outline of Actuator circuits

·         Linear Actuators

·         Feedback Sensors

·         Circuit threshold & impedance testing

·         Control unit Diagnostic processing

 

Introduction to CAN BUS Systems

 Duration: 2 Days

 Cost: £395.00+vat per candidate

 Course Aim:-

 This course is specifically designed towards a Technician that needs to understand

the modern vehicle fitted with CAN-BUS communication system. Most vehicles are

now fitted with some type of communication system and this can, if not understood,

prevent many simple diagnoses of vehicle faults. Different types of CAN

communication with protocols will be unraveled from the simple 16pin DLC

connector to the high speed systems fitted for Engine management and ABS

communication.

Extensive practical sessions will used throughout the course with on-vehicle testing

to back up the theory.

On completion of the course the delegate will feel competent and confident to

identify, test and diagnose CAN-BUS systems found on all modern vehicles.

A good understanding of electrical circuits and testing prior to attending will enable

the delegate to absorb more of this course’s content.

 Subjects Covered:-

·         Why CAN-BUS

·         History

·         Principle & Structure

·         Operation

·         Message Construction

·         Arbitration

·         Layout & Construction of CAN systems

·         Simple diagnosis of CAN systems (Theory & Practical)

·         Troubleshooting CAN systems (Theory & Practical)

 

How to use an Oscilloscope

 Duration: 2 Days

 Cost: £395.00+vat per candidate

 Course Aim:-

 Many modern systems and components fitted to vehicles require techniques and

testing equipment to enable a Technician to understand if a circuit is working within

its correct parameters. With control units now working at very high speeds only an

Oscilloscope can help with the correct investigation and diagnosis.

Extensive practical sessions will used throughout the course with on-vehicle testing

to back up the theory.

On completion of the course the delegate will feel competent and confident in using

an Oscilloscope, knowing when to use, how to use and analyzing results to give

correct diagnosis of circuits and components.

It is suggested that delegates bring their own Oscilloscope so that they can use and

utilize throughout the course to become more familiar with it.

A good understanding of electrical circuits and testing prior to attending will enable

the delegate to absorb more of this course’s content.

 

Subjects Covered:-

·         When to use an Oscilloscope

·         Oscilloscope set-up

·         Oscilloscope measurement parameters

·         Sensor Testing

·         Actuator Testing
