An industrial electronics technician maintains and repairs the electronic equipment used in manufacturing facilities, such as PC-based controllers, air conditioning and heating systems, boilers, and conveyors. They may be responsible for installing, inspecting, and improving the efficiency in equipment as well.
Industrial electronics technicians install electronic equipment using various power tools and machinery, including drill presses, pipe threaders, grinders, hoists, measuring devices, and testing equipment, inspect and maintain existing equipment using similar tools, such as voltmeters and PC-based diagnostic software. This may require analysis and troubleshooting of complex problems. Industrial electronics technicians also replace existing equipment based on age, operation, and functionality.
