Automation-Mecatronics Pressurized Systems

Provided by: Ivy Tech

This course covers the basics of pneumatic, electro pneumatic and hydraulic control circuits in a complex mechatronic system; Students will learn the functions and properties of control elements based upon physical principles, and the roles they play within the system; Technical documentation such as data sheets, circuit diagrams, displacement step diagrams and function charts will also be covered; By understanding and performing measurements on the pneumatic and hydraulic control circuits, students will learn and apply troubleshooting strategies to identify, localize and (where possible) to correct malfunctions; Preventive maintenance of (electro) pneumatic and hydraulic components as well as safety issues within the system will be discussed;

Course Objectives:

  • 1 Understand the hazards of electromechanical equipment and apply safe working practices
  • 2 Understand what a mechatronic system is, and the inter relationships of components and modules within a complex mechatronic system with a focus on (electro) pneumatic and hydraulic control systems
  • 3 Understand the role of (electro) pneumatic and hydraulic control systems in complex mechatronic system and subsystems
