PneuMotion

PneuMotion software is a computer-aided design tool that teaches students how to design and operate pneumatic and electro-pneumatic circuits. PneuMotion enables the study of pneumatics principles and technology. The software’s HMI animation provides an accurate working simulation of pneumatic devices and circuits.

Users can change the default parameters of the pneumatic components, such as piston extension and retraction, speed and timer set point. Software algorithms adjust the system’s response to present a realistic pneumatic system response.

In addition to simulation of virtual circuits, PneuMotion can control actual electro-pneumatic circuits. When connected to the JMTS training panel, the software provides on-line graphic tracking of circuits in operation. (Requires computer interface control unit.)
