Development of sensitive pneumatic switching controls for industrial plant

Objective



To design and develop a prototype pneumatic switching system for industrial plant and machinery. The system will: 1. be touch sensitive to improve operator control 2. incorporate improved response times down to 15 ms 3. be capable of being installed as an upgrade to existing systems 4. be cheaper to install and maintain than electrical systems 5. be devoid of any electrical components and so be suitable for use in installations where there is a fire hazard.
