WPN211 - Electro-Pneumatic Practical Webinar

WPN211 - Electro-Pneumatic Practical Webinar

During this webinar participants will learn the basic concepts to successfully design an electro-pneumatic system based on actual industrial automation applications. You will be familiarized with electrical actuation, -sensing and control technologies and identify differences and similarities between different technologies.

Design, simulation and fault-finding of electro-pneumatic circuits will be performed by each participant on his/her own pc/laptop using our award-winning FluidSIM software, while interacting with our experienced facilitators.

Content, outcomes and exercises are based on the Electro-Pneumatic face-to-face training courses.


Target group:

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

This format of training is ideal for first-time users of the technology, refresher courses, preparation for face-to-face training courses and group trainings. 

This platform makes training ideal for those who are not able to attend face-to-face training courses.

In-house custom webinars are also available on request.



  • Electrical principles
  • Electrical and pneumatic symbols and standards
  • Interaction of electrical control section and pneumatic power section
  • Function of signal generators (push buttons, switches and relays)
  • Electronic sensors (inductive, capacitive and infrared)
  • Systematic production and reading of electrical circuit diagrams
  • Operating modes of electro-pneumatic control systems
  • Safety regulations and valid standards for electrical engineering and pneumatics
  • Practical exercises for all circuits “hands-on”
  • Typical Industrial circuits



The Participant:

  • can describe the functional relationship between pneumatic and electrical components
  • can identify and describe the design, features and operation of electro–pneumatic and electrical components
  • can identify and explain symbols for electro–pneumatic and electrical components
  • can design, assemble and simulate an electro–pneumatic circuit
  • can read and interpret electro–pneumatic circuit diagrams
  • knows the role of a PLC in automation



The webinar will take place from 8:00 - 10:00 CAT Monday - Friday (unless otherwise specified).  Attendance of all the sessions is compulsory.

Assessment and Certification:

An assignment is to be completed at the end of the course after which participants will receive a Festo certificate of "Successfully completing the Electro-Pneumatic Webinar", based on the participant's level of understanding and practical application of the submitted assignments.
