Subject matter experts have been hard at work revising the IFPS Electronic Controls Specialist Certification (study manual, pre-test, written test) with expectations to be re-released the first quarter of 2016. This certification is designed to review and test understanding, specification, and application of the full breadth of electronics used in the fluid power industry from simple sensors and limits to HMIs, controllers, and networks. It includes a brief review of applicable pneumatic and hydraulic principles, as well as in-depth examples of the electronics for both mobile and industrial fluid power equipment. The Electronic Controls Specialist certification requires a three (3)-hour written test. This certification will be followed by the development of Mobile Electronic Controls and Industrial Electronic Controls certifications.
