Pneumatics

Similar to elex, SenAct also has a pneumatics presentation. Take some time to read through it.

Key takeaways:

  • Air is pumped from the compressor into the air tanks which then feed the air to the solenoids.
  • Storage tank air pressure should be around 120 PSI, while working pressure should not exceed 60 PSI. There are two guages on the robot indicating the two levels of pressure.
  • Pistons and other pneumatic devices are controlled by the solenoids, which open and close values to let air through based on RoboRIO input.
