This module is the third in the series of Pneumatics Technology modules, which enable students to grasp the fundamentals of pneumatic and electro-pneumatic controlled systems (pneumatic systems controlled electrically) commonly used in modern automated manufacturing environments. Virtual and hands-on activities challenge students to design and build pneumatic circuits with simulation software and actual components. In this module, students are exposed to the function and operation of electric/electro-pneumatic components such as switches, relays, timers, electrical push buttons, solenoid operated valves and proximity sensors. Using graphic simulations and animations, students create, modify, operate and observe simulated pneumatic and electro-pneumatic devices and circuits. Students connect different components, change physical parameters and observe system responses.

The Pneumatics Technology 1 module introduces the principles of pneumatics and pneumatically controlled systems commonly used in automated manufacturing environments.
This module features pneumatic simulation software that allows you to create, modify, operate and observe simulated industrial grade pneumatic and electro-pneumatic devices and circuits. You connect different components, change physical parameters and observe system responses.
The module emphasizes basic skills in operating simulation software and industrial components. This module also includes applied science experiments to demonstrate the physical principles of air power.

The Pneumatics Technology 2 module introduces students to advanced principles and components of pneumatics and pneumatically controlled systems commonly used in automated manufacturing environments. Students are also introduced to timing diagrams and the logic functions AND and OR, and implement them in pneumatic circuits.
Students create, modify, operate and observe simulated pneumatic devices and circuits. Students test and troubleshoot pneumatic circuits by connecting components, changing physical parameters and observing system responses. The module focuses on pneumatics circuits and industrial applications.
