Festo P111 – Introduction to Penumatics Course

About the P111

Designed as a general introduction to the subject of pneumatics, the course aims to familiarise delegates with the design, construction, and operation of pneumatic components. This includes the interpretation of circuit diagrams and symbols as well as the construction of control systems.

Course Summary

The course covers use of compressed air for pneumatic control and as a signalling medium. A complete overview is given, covering compressors, storage, dryers, and distribution as well as the design, construction and operation of a range of actuators, valves and acillary equipment. The relevant ISO symbols are introduced and included in the circuit diagrams.

Practical sessions give delegates the opportunity to put theory into practice. Working from the diagrams they have produced, delegates have to select the correct components from a range of equipment and build circuits, making the neccessary adjustments for pressure, flow and sequence.

A strong emphasis is placed on safety and appropriate working practices throughout the course, especially during practical sessions.

Target Group

All personell involved with the design, installaton, and maintenance of industrial pneumatic equipment and basic control systems.

Training Outcomes

On completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • 1. Understand the units and measurement scales associated with compressed air systems
  • 2. Recognise pneumatic symbols drawn to the relevant standards (ISO 1219)
  • 3. Understand the functioning of standard pneumatic cylinders and valves
  • 4. Read pneumatic circuit diagrams
  • 5. Construct simple pneumatic controls
  • 6. Understand safe practice

N.B. Course contents are only a guide and will be covered as far as time permits.

Course duration

Course take place over three days and take place at Kiowa Conference/Training Centre. Practical exercises are used throughout the whole course. Candidates will also use FluidSIM, a Festo software package for the design and simulation of Fluid Power circuits.
