Introduction to Electro-Pneumatics

Introduction to Electro-Pneumatics

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.

Target Group
All personnel involved with the design, installation, maintenance, operation and servicing of industrial electro-pneumatic equipment and basic control systems.


  • Overview of pneumatic symbols
  • Electrical symbols
  • Electrical contact specification
  • Electrical logic connections
  • Solenoid valves
  • Open and closed loop control
  • Relays
