Pneumatics, Basic level. The fully revised classic
Further enhanced and updated through the lessons learned from over 1,000 seminars on pneumatics.
- With brand-new industrial components, enabling you to teach tomorrow's industrial standard today.
- The workbook contains a series of graduated project exercises based on actual industrial applications, an enhanced section on fundamentals and a multimedia USB-Stick or download access.
The number of components and the design are specially tailored to the projects contained in the workbook so that the main fundamentals can be imparted with little outlay. Delivered in practical, Systainer-compatible equipment trays.
Performance through close proximity
Switches and valves should be mounted as close to the actuator as possible for optimum performance. You can now apply the same principle when designing your circuits thanks to the new components. Furthermore, this approach also provides you with an easy way of demonstrating the performance of a one-way flow control valve. You can even record the measured values and analyse the results, for example using the TP 210!
The next generation of valves
The new generation of valves allows the operation of various pressure zones – so nothing stands in the way of an efficient use of energy. In addition, the position of connection was optimised so that differences between the circuit symbol and the valve can be avoided.
The pneumatic timer can be precisely adjusted and is easy to read. Pressure changes do not alter the set delay time. Pneumatics at its best.
