Pneumatics

Pneumatic cylinders use compressed air (rather than motors) to produce motion that rests in one of 2 states: fully extended or fully retracted.

The cylinder in Pneumatics Kit 1 is single-acting -- it uses air to extend the cylinder rod, but uses a spring to return to its contracted state. As a result, the cylinder may expand and contract at different speeds.

In contrast, the cylinders in Pneumatics Kit 2 are double-acting and use compressed air to both extend and retract.

Pneumatics

Pneumatics Kit 1 - Single Acting Cylinders

Kit 1 is a complete pneumatics add-on for VEX EDR. The cylinders are Single Acting, meaning they use air pressure to extend the piston, and an internal spring to allow the piston to retract.

  • Uses one VEX EDR Controller I/O port per air cylinder
  • Reservoir is filled using a standard tie pump fitting


Pneumatics Kit 1A - Single Acting Cylinder Add-On

Kit 1A adds one Cylinder (Air Push, Spring Return) to Kit 1 or Kit 2

  • Cannot be used without Kit 1 or Kit 2


Pneumatics Kit 2 - Double Acting Cylinders

Kit 2 is a complete pneumatics add-on for VEX EDR. The cylinders are Double Acting, meaning they use air pressure to extend and retract the piston.

  • Uses one VEX EDR Controller I/O port per air cylinder
  • Reservoir is filled using a standard tie pump fitting


Pneumatics Kit 2A - Double Acting Cylinder Add-On

Kit 2A adds one Cylinder (Bi-directional) to Kit 1 or Kit 2

Cannot be used without Kit 1 or Kit 2

Solenoid Driver Cable (2-pack)

The Pneumatic Solenoid Driver Cable is this same driver cable that is included in the Pneumatic Kits. This cable takes the digital On\Off signal and controls the 5V power applied to a pneumatic solenoid.

  • 3 wire PWM Connector to connect to the VEX EDR Microcontroller
  • 2 wire Pneumatic Connector to connect to the Pneumatic Solenoid
  • Rated for about 3/4 Amp

Pneumatics Tubing (5')

5 ft. of Polyurethane Tubing for use with VEX EDR Pneumatics. (Black, 5/32" OD)

  • 5 ft. of Polyurethane Tubing
  • Compatible with VEX EDR Pneumatics
