Sensor technology 1: eLearning course

Sensors in pneumatics 

This training program deals in detail with the sensors used to detect end position on cylinders and with pressure and flow sensors in pneumatic systems. Based on a complex example from industrial practice, trainees are taught to select suitable sensors. The necessary basic knowledge for this is provided in the Technical Knowledge and Components modules, to which they can refer at any time.

All training content is taught by means of audio clips. Additionally, the narrative text can be viewed.

Content extracts:

  • Project: Selection of sensors in one of the clamping units of a processing centre
  • Advantages and disadvantages of various end position sensors on cylinders
  • Simple displacement encoders on cylinders
  • Use of pressure sensors to improve safety in pneumatic systems
  • Use of flow sensors to safeguard system cycle times
  • Output signals from sensors
  • Connection technology
  • NO/NC (Normally Open, Normally Closed)
  • Switching functions
  • Sensors for end position detection: Pneumatic and mechanical limit switch, reed switch, transistor switch, Hall sensor, position sensor
  • Types of pressure measurement
