Electromechanical Equipment TechnicianOrganization:

I perform daily functional tests of relays on electromechanical equipment. The relays are tested periodically as part of a preventive maintenance schedule. Sometimes the relays fail in service and I have to troubleshoot the relaying scheme to identify the problem. I also clean, perform tests, and calibrate different types of electromechanical relays. These tasks require knowledge of assembling machines, systems, and devices.
