Hi! We just got our new pneumatic kit and I have been trying to find videos, or websites and cannot find anything. please help! We just want the controlller button to be pressed and the piston will go and retract in vexcode python
Take a look at the VEX Library articles here:
There is a lot of information in the vex knowledge base. https://kb.vex.com/hc/en-us/categories/360002333191-V5?sc=mechanical Scroll down a bit to find articles on the current (new) pneumatics kit, and also on the legacy pneumatics. As you read the articles, keep in mind that what you are calling a “piston” is actually called and “air cylinder” in all the technical information.
Hi @cookies_in_the_Jar, happy to help. Here is a link to a VEX article for Controlling Pneumatics Using Buttons on Your Controller from help.vex.com, and further pneumatic coding information in Coding the V5 Pneumatics Kit. Lastly here is an article for Understanding the V5 Pneumatics Kit Components, as well as Example V5 Pneumatics Kit Configurations to get your system up and running.
It’s the same as the old ones. Look at the help for double acting.
This link is from the product page for the new kits:
