Industrial Pneumatics and Electro-Pneumatic Controls

Course Objective

Provide participants with a wider knowledge of components that are subject to wear and the possible sources of faults.
A systematic approach to fault finding is practised as in the reading of complex pneumatic circuits and understanding of fundamental controls and circuits and as well as to develop an ability to read, design and construct simple electro-pneumatic controls.
