  • Why You should take this training program

    NEW – This course is now available via our interactive Live Online Training format. Live Online Training course length and content may vary from our in-classroom content. Click Here to ask us about the differences.

    Learn about the real world of the hybrid technology of electro-pneumatics. Gain the knowledge to successfully install, maintain and troubleshoot electro-pneumatic systems and components. In many instances this knowledge can create cost savings. After a brief introduction to compressed air technology, dive right into the electrical ladder diagram, components and symbols. Through hands-on exercises, learn about the control of pneumatic actuators, latching of electrical signals, logic controls, timers, and counters. All the hands-on exercises are real world applications and can be used on most of the industry’s automated equipment. Designed for engineering, maintenance, operations and management personnel who directly or indirectly encounter pneumatic power control and systems during the course of their daily functions, such as, installing, maintaining, troubleshooting, buying, or specifying pneumatic power equipment.
