PH-1 Basic Electropneumatic Circuit 2 HOURS 10F 3

At the end of the lab session students should be able: 1.1 Design Basic Electropneumatic circuit. 1.2 Apply and demonstrate the electropneumatic circuit on the experimental board
2.0 Introduction / theory

Pneumatics deals the use of compressed air. Most commonly, compressed air is used to do mechanical work – that is to produce motion and to generate forces. Pneumatic drives have the task of converting the energy stored in compressed air into motion. Cylinders are most commonly used for pneumatic drives. They are characterized by robust construction, a large range of types, simple installation and favorable price/performance. As a result of these benefits, pneumatics is used in a wide range of applications. Both pneumatic and electropneumatic controllers have a pneumatic power section. The signal control section varies according to type. In an electro-pneumatic control the signal control section is made up of a electrical components, for example with electrical input buttons, proximity switches, relays, or a programmable logic controller.






6.1 Pressurised air lines that become detached can cause accidents. Push Button 3 will start up the lamp 1 & 4 and also the buzzer. Problem 2: Push button 1 will control the movement of cylinder A to extend and it will retract with the help of spring and also will start up lamp no 2 and the buzzer after switch on. Push button no 2 will control the extend of cylinder B . Switch off pressure immediately! 4.3 Cylinders may advance or retract as soon as the compressed air is switched on.0 Result/Data Problem 1 Signal Flow Electropneumatic Component Symbol . Cylinder A will retract with the help of spring. 4.JJ512 Pneumatic & Hydralics (Laboratory) EXPERIMENT TITLE DURATION PAGE 4. 5.0 Procedures / Problem definition Problem 1 : Push Button 1 will control the movement of extend cylinder A and cylinder 6. 4. meanwhile push button 2 will control the movement of retract cylinder B.4 Do not exceed the permissible working pressure (see data sheets). lamp 4 will ON and lamp 3 will be OFF when push button 2 is switch on. Push button 3 will control the retract of cylinder B.5 Use only low voltages of 24 V 4.6 Switch off the air and voltage supply before disconnecting the circuit. 4.0 Safety Precautions PH-1 Basic Electropneumatic Circuit 2 HOURS 2 0F 3 4.2 First connect all tubing and secure before switching on the compressed air.
