Chapter 6Development of multiple actuator circuits
Festo Didactic 
Chapter A-6 
6.1Control of multiple actuators
In the case of multiple cylinder circuits, a clear definition of the problemis important. The representation of the desired motion of all actuators isdescribed using the displacement-step diagram. The special conditionsfor the start of the sequence must also be defined.If the motion diagram and auxiliary conditions have been clearlydefined, drawing of the circuit diagram can commence. The circuitdiagram should be designed according to the guidelines set out inchapter A-4.In order for a circuit to operate, it is essential to avoid overlappingsignals. By an overlapping signal, we understand signals appliedsimultaneously at the two control ports of a double pilot valve. Thefollowing valves can be used to eliminate signal overlap: roller lever valves with idle return or toggle lever valves, time delay valves,reversing valves or sequencers.To provide a better understanding of the methods, some examples aregiven for the use of roller lever valves with idle return and reversingvalves.
6.2Example 8: Co-ordinated motion
Two cylinders are used to transfer parts from a magazine onto a chute.When a push button is pressed, the first cylinder extends, pushing thepart from the magazine and positions it in preparation for transfer by thesecond cylinder onto the outfeed chute. Once the part is transferred,the first cylinder retracts, followed by the second.Confirmation of all extended and retracted positions are required.
