85-EP Main Image

A sample copy of the Basic Hydraulics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Learning System: 85-EP

Amatrol’s Electro-Pneumatics Learning System (85-EP) adds to the Basic Pneumatics Learning System (850-P1) to teach electrical relay control of pneumatic systems and their industry applications. Learners will study industry-relevant skills related to these topics including operation, installation, performance analysis, and design.

The 85-EP provides students with the components to set up a variety of industrial relay control circuits using ladder diagrams and Boolean logic. Relay control is a fundamental building block in the study of automation since programmable controllers and solid state controls also use the same programming methods.

The model 85-EP includes an Electrical Control Module with relay control components, Electrical Valve Module with solenoid operated pneumatic directional control valves and electrical/electronic sensors, lead set, student curriculum for both theory and lab, student reference guide, and an instructor’s guide.

Learning Topics

  • Introduction to Electrical Control Systems
  • Basic Control Devices
  • Power Devices
  • Control Relays
  • Sequencing Control
  • Timer Control
  • Pressure Control Applications
  • Circuit Applications

Build Hands-On Electro-Pneumatic Skills with Real-World Equipment

The 85-EP Learning System includes two panels, an Electrical Control Panel and Electrical Valve Module, for hands-on learning and skill practice. The Electrical Control Panel contains components like a selector switch, power switch assembly, timer relay, and indicator lights, and the Electrical Valve Module features directional control valves, limit switches, and a photo-electric switch assembly.

Learners will use these components to practice real-world skills such as connecting and operating the following: a hydraulic motor using a 4/2 solenoid-operated DCV; a multiple pressure control circuit that uses a solenoid relief valve; an emergency stop control circuit; and a single-cycle cylinder reciprocation circuit. Learners will also design a time-driven traffic light circuit, a motor control circuit with multiple start/stop pushbuttons, and much more!

Additional Amatrol Learning System Integration

In addition to the 850-P1, the 85-EP can also be integrated with Amatrol trainers such as the Basic Fluid Power Learning System (850-C1), the Basic Fluid Power Learning System – Double Sided A-Frame Bench with Two Hydraulic Manifolds (850-CD1), and the Basic Fluid Power Learning System – Double Sided A-Frame Bench with One Hydraulic Manifold (850-CD2). The 850-C1 allows learners to practice both hydraulic and pneumatic skills on the same learning system. The 850-CD1 and 850-CD2 also include the opportunity to practice both hydraulic and pneumatic skills on the same system, but double the training capacity of the 850-C1.

World-Class Curriculum for Comprehensive Electro-Pneumatic Knowledge

Amatrol’s eLearning curriculum is well known for its comprehensive coverage of subject areas. The 85-EP’s curriculum is no different covering major areas like basic control devices, power devices, control relays, sequence control, timer control, and more. With these main topic areas, learners will delve into deeper comprehension of the subject by studying ladder diagrams, relay operation, motor control applications, multiple cylinder control, and pressure switch operation and applications.

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. This thorough, detailed curriculum begins with the basics and advances to complex concepts. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
