TOPIC
SEQUENTIAL CONTROL OF TWO DOUBLE ACTING CYLINDER WITH OVERLAPPING SIGNALS

OBJECTIVES
At the end of the session the students will be able to :
I.
II.
III.

Apply safety rules in the laboratory


Design pneumatic circuit using a sequential control of two double acting cylinders
without overlapping signals and with overlapping signals
Differentiate between sequential control without overlapping signals and with
overlapping signals

INTRODUCTION
Elimination of signal conflict in sequential control
If signal overlapping occurs through the actuating sequence of the limit switches in a
sequential control , if is necessary to use other or additional component in order to eliminate
these signal overlap. Signallers with idle return roller are only briefly actuated , send only
short impulsees in one direction. Idle return rollers are thus used to neutralized signal
overlapping instead of standard roller.
Use of idle return roller
An idle-return roller valve consists of a 3/2 way DCV fitted with an idle return roller
mechanism.

EQUIPMENT
I.

Double acting cylinders

II.

5/2 ways directional control valve, impulse valve

III.

One way flow control valve

IV.

3/2 directional control valve with push button

I.

3/2 directional control valve with roller

SAFETY
Build your designs and verify your operation. Make sure that the pressure is 4 bars and is
connected correctly. Double check your connections before switching the compressor on.

OPERATION
1. The workpiece that is to be drilled is placed into a jig by hand.
2. After actuating the start button, the piston of a double acting cylinder A clamps the
workpiece.
3. When the workpiece has been clamped, the piston of the drilling cylinder B extand,
drills the workpiece ad retracts (after completing the drilling procedure) automaticaly
back into its end position.
4. When the piston of cylinder B has returned to its upper end position, the piston of
cylinder A also retracts and unclamps the workpiece.
5. The working speed of both cylinders is infinitely.
