Pneumatics Training System

The Lab-Volt Pneumatics Training System, Model 6081, is a modular program in pneumatics and its applications. The system is divided into five subsystems: Pneumatic Fundamentals, Electrical Control of Pneumatic Systems, Pneumatics Applications – PLC (programmable logic controller), Servo Control of Pneumatic Systems, Troubleshooting Pneumatic Circuits, and Sensors. In Pneumatics Fundamentals, the students are introduced to the basic principles and components of pneumatics. (This module is also available in a computer based learning format with electronic grading.) Electrical Control of Pneumatic Systems covers electrical control of pneumatic systems with ladder diagrams. Pneumatics Applications – PLC expands upon the others with pneumatics applications controlled by PLC. In Servo Control of Pneumatic Systems, students are introduced to servo controlled pneumatic systems and their associated circuitry. In Troubleshooting Pneumatic Circuits, students develop their skills in troubleshooting. In Sensors, students are introduced to the operating characteristics of six types of photoelectric and proximity sensors. Most of the components used for electrical control of the Lab-Volt Pneumatics Training System can also be used with the Lab-Volt Hydraulics Training System, Model 6080, allowing interconnection of both systems to perform more complete functions.
