Pneumatics Lab

Overview
The Pneumatics Lab is a training equipment designed for the study of various circuits used in automated compressed air systems design. The supplied hands-on labs will help the students with the practical study of basic components and operating principles of compressed air systems. The lab is based on National Instruments Test & Measurement Equipment, permitting the students to design their own models of basic compressed air systems and test control algorithms in the LabVIEW graphical programming environment.

Required hardware and software
 ▪ NI cRIO platform
 ▪ 12 in. LabVIEW Touch Panel Computer
 ▪ Lab platform
 ▪ Compressor
 ▪ Lab software and user manual
