1.0 Title : Step Counter Double Cylinder Circuit2.0 Objective At the end of the lab session students should be able: i. To construct accurately the pneumatic circuit ii. To report briefly the pneumatic experiments in group.3.0 Theory Limit switch and idle roller is the component of the pneumatic system that using to get the continuous sequence. Limit switch will be activated in both directions while the idle roller activate for one direction only. Both components will be apply in basic pneumatic circuit and idle roller is very important to prevent double signal from appear.4.0 Safety Precaution First of all, it is important to mention some safety rules such as : i. Do not start the experiment without the technician or lecturer. ii. Do not using damage equipments. iii. Make sure the pneumatic hose is plug incorrect position and should be deep enough. iv. Setting on air supply to medium pressure ( 3 – 10 bars ). v. Store all the component at their exact place after complete all the experiment. vi. Do not unplug the pneumatic hose during operation and etc.
5.0 Procedure Based on the situation: i. The pneumatic component was identified. ii. The pneumatic circuits have been constructed. iii. The actual circuits have been developed on the pneumatic workbench. iv. All connection has been checked. v. The circuits have been ruined through.

7.0 Discussion Actual circuit.We compared the experiment circuit with actual circuit. We found that type of DCV not same.experiment circuit use DCV 5/2 way with spring, but in actual circuit we use DCV 4/2 way withspring. It can operate in complete circuit because the function of both DCV are same.8.0 Conclusion and Recommendation Our conclusion is we can know how to construct accurately and can arrange the component of pneumatic circuit systematically. Then we can know how to report and explain briefly the operation of pneumatic experiment in group. Next we can learn to find out the correct component and equipment. For our recommendation there are components that have been damaged mixed with the component that can work. Components should be separated so that students do not use these components to build the circuit. Components need to be replaced with new components so that students can use enough components to build the circuit mainly used by many groups.
