really I dont recall if ther is a way to do it unless you set up a solenoid (single) the vents the "a" port with nothing on that port

wait a sec.
by burp, do you mean shut off when the pressure is too high? cause to do that there's a few different ways, but it depends on your robot setup.

I'm guessing he means how does he depressurize the pneumatic system before storing or before working on the plumbing. (Although in that case the question shouldn't be in the Programming forum ;))
We installed a valve in our system for just this purpose. I'm pretty sure it came in the kit last year, and I would guess it must have been there this year too.

if that's the case, i'm 99% sure you need that valve on there, to depressurize after a round. it's a hell of a lot safer than just pulling a tube out, plus it lessens the chance of a leak. anyone who doesn't use that is crazy.
