Industrial Electro-Pneumatics


EXP3 is a comprehensive training system for Industrial Electro-Pneumatics. This system provides the hands-on training required to effectively study air and electrical logic circuitry used by today’s employers. TII’s curriculum covers air logic and electro-pneumatic control technology in its four areas of instruction: Physical Properties and Fundamentals, Applications, Air Logic, and Electro-Pneumatic Control.

Our training system is accompanied by a comprehensive student manual and instructor’s guide which focus on the background and applications of combining air and electrical logic with pneumatic components in industrially relevant laboratory exercises. The curriculum begins with a fundamental review of basic pneumatic principles as well as an introduction to programmable logic control (PLC). These sections are followed by air logic and electrical control circuits and schematics. Additional topics focus on typical air logic and electro- pneumatic applications found in industry.
