Hydraulic and Pneumatic Training System | Hands-On Fluid Power Skills

Learning System: 850-CD1

Amatrol’s Basic Fluid Power Learning System – Double Sided A-Frame Bench with Two Hydraulic Manifolds (850-CD1) is built to provide for both hydraulic and pneumatic systems training. Equipped with one set of basic hydraulics training (85-BH) panels and basic pneumatics training (85-BP) panels, the fluid power training system has the capacity to double your training capacity by adding another set of the basic fluid power training panels to the opposite side of the A-frame. This system introduces industry-relevant hydraulic and pneumatic skills while showing how they apply to fundamental fluid power principles, such as pressure and flow. After completing this learning system, learners will not only understand concepts like pressure versus cylinder force and basic motor circuits, but also be able to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot basic fluid power systems for various applications. Pneumatics and hydraulics are used in innumerable industrial applications.

In addition to the basic hydraulic training and basic pneumatic training, the fluid power training system includes a controls technology workbench, a 2.5 GPM/500 psi hydraulic power unit, student curriculum, student reference guides, and much more! Featuring standard industrial-grade components, this learning system provides learners with real-world experience they would normally only attain on the job. Fluid power training’s mobile workstation is constructed of heavy-duty welded steel to provide a sturdy, long-lasting learning station. Learners can easily store component panels in storage slots located under the work surface until needed.

Limited on Space? Take Full Advantage of Your Available Training Area!

Fluid power training optimizes limited training space by providing an area for hydraulic and pneumatic panels on both sides of the system. Panels can be easily removed and repositioned as necessary to facilitate the completion of the learners’ tasks. Each end of the fluid power training system is equipped with a hose storage rack that contains all the hoses needed to perform the required hydraulic skills. Also for hydraulic applications, the included hydraulic power unit has the ability to provide hydraulic fluid flow to both sides of the system where learners practice skills such as connecting and actuating basic hydraulic circuits. When precise flow rates and measurements are required, the system has the ability to limit the flow to one side or the other.

Expand Your System for Additional Learning Opportunities

When you’re ready to go beyond basic hydraulics and pneumatics, you can add optional learning systems to the basic fluid power training system to extend its capabilities to explore more advanced concepts, such as Intermediate Hydraulics (85-IH), Advanced Hydraulics (85-AH), Electro-Hydraulics (85-EH), Intermediate Pneumatics (85-IP), Advanced Pneumatics (85-AP), Electro-Pneumatics (85-EP), and Electro-Fluid Power (85-EF). These optional systems integrate seamlessly with the basic fluid power training system and teach intermediate to advanced hydraulic and pneumatic concepts, including electrical relay control of hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

Strong Curriculum with an Array of Hydraulic and Pneumatic Skills and Concepts

The fluid power training system features both basic hydraulic and pneumatic curriculum. Within hydraulics, learners will study about the physical principles of hydraulics and how hydraulic mechanisms are used in real world applications. From this building block, learners begin constructing hydraulic circuits, which gradually increase in difficulty and number of industry-standard components as the curriculum goes along. Basic pneumatics follows this same approach, beginning with an explanation of pneumatic power and basic cylinder circuits before advancing to topics like pressure and flow, pneumatic leverage, pneumatic speed control circuits, and air flow control and measurement. Amatrol's interactive multimedia eLearning format includes audio narrative, colorful 3D animations, video, and interactive quizzes and exercises.

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.
