Part-B
2 x 5 = 10 Marks
21. A double-acting cylinder is to be controlled using a 5/2-way single solenoid valve. When push-
button PBI is pressed, the cylinder is to extend and remain in that position even when PBI is
released. The cylinder is to retract to the home position when push-button PB2 is pressed. Also,
the cylinder is to remain in the home position even when PB2 is released. Develop a dominant-
OFF electro-pneumatic control circuit with an electrical latching circuit as part of it.
22. Design and neatly draw the multiple sequencing circuit for sequence A+B+B-A- by Cascade
method for the Pneumatic system.
