    Does anyone know anything about coding pneumatics or know of a person or a tutorial that our team can refer to.

    Re: Pneumatic Programming

    The pneumatic programming you refer to is for the solenoid(s) you would use to direct air to (or vent from) a pneumatic actuator based on a user command or a sensor that opens/closes a circuit. The compressor is powered by 12V power and controlled by the pressure switch. When the pressure switch indicates that the pressure in the air receiver tank(s) - up to 4 - is at 120 psig, the compressor stops. It starts again when pressure falls to ~ 60 psig.

    You have to determine what you want to actuate and that will in turn determine your solenoid arrangement. shows some possibilities, but tend to go over the top.

    Best wishes.

      if its the programming, it should be like "a= input...
      if a=1 then output...=1... ect"
      (im more familiar w/ basic, you will have to reformat this)
