Description

This module covers advanced pneumatic systems, advanced electro-pneumatics.

The student will design pneumatic and electro-pneumatic systems and develop fault finding skills in automation systems.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Apply the cascade method to solve pneumatic and electro-pneumatic sequential problems.

2.

Design and build pneumatic and electro-pneumatic safety interlocks for machine and process safety.

3.

Design and build pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits to solve industrial problems in combinational and sequential logic. 

4.

Develop faulting finding skills and techniques to solve pneumatic and electro-pneumatic problems.

5.
