About the PN821 Course
Designed as a general introduction to the function and operation of pneumatic and electrical equipment used in simple Electro-Pneumatic controls, the course covers the design and practical construction of such circuits.
The course deals with the control of pneumatic actuators using electrical sensing and switching devices. Electrical principles are covered at a basic level, but some previous knowledge of pneumatic equipment is required. Both functions and operation of switches, relays, solenoid- operated valves and proximity sensors are included and delegates put theory into practice with practical exercises. Working from pneumatic and electrical circuit diagrams they have produced, delegates have to select the appropriate equipment and build control circuits. A strong emphasis is placed on safety and appropriate working practices throughout the course, especially during the practical sessions.
All personnel involved with the design, installation, maintenance, operation and servicing of industrial Electro-Pneumatic equipment and basic control systems with a general engineering background.
