Pneumatics Training

PN111 – Pneumatics - Level 1

This course was designed to fulfil the expectations of people who need to understand and apply the requirements of modern industrial pneumatics with real shop-floor applications.

The training course sets a good background for further automation training.

This course combines the fundamentals of the Basic Pneumatic and Electro-Pneumatic courses in a neat application-orientated package.

Target Group: Everyone who deals with pneumatic systems in their work environment.

The content includes:

• Combination of electrical control section andpneumatic power section.

• Basic principles of compressed air supply which include production, preparation and distribution.

• Different actuators and their applications.

• The use of directional control valves, speed control valves and sensors.

• Structure and function of electrical switching devices, timers and solenoid valves.

• Basic logic functions and signalling functions.

• Valve technology.

• Symbolic representation of devices and standards ISO1219, IEC61346.

• Safety regulations and stringent industrial standards.

After completing this course, the participant will be able to:

• Design, assemble and test basic pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits.

• Identify and describe the design, features and operation of electro-pneumatic as well as electrical components.

• Identify and explain symbols for pneumatic,electro-pneumatic and electrical components.

• Interpret technical specifications and data relating to pneumatic components.

• Understand the fundamentals of compressed air generation and preparation.

• Describe the functional relationship between pneumatic and electrical components.

• Design, assemble and test an electro-pneumatic circuit.

• Comprehend the role of a PLC in automation.
