850-C1- Basic Fluid Power Learning System – Single Surface Bench

A sample copy of the Advanced Pneumatics 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.

Basic Fluid Power Learning System 850-C1 | Single Surface Bench

Learning System: 850-C1

Amatrol’s Basic Fluid Power Learning System – Single Surface Bench (850-C1) teaches learners the fundamentals of two bedrocks of industry: hydraulic and pneumatic power. Hydraulics and pneumatics are used in countless applications throughout industry in fields like automotive, pharmaceutical, packaging, and mining. This fluid power training system includes three panels on its work surface and can store up to four additional panels under the work surface for expanded hydraulic and pneumatic training.

The basic fluid power training system includes a controls technology bench with a hydraulic power supply and Amatrol’s basic pneumatics and hydraulics systems. These systems feature industrial-quality components to prepare learners for what they will encounter on the job. Major topics covered by the system’s multimedia curriculum include hydraulic and pneumatic power systems, basic hydraulic and pneumatic circuits, principles of pneumatic and hydraulic pressure and flow, and hydraulic and pneumatic speed control.

Learning Topics

  • Hydraulic Power Systems
  • Basic Hydraulic Circuits
  • Principles of Hydraulic Pressure and Flow
  • Hydraulic Speed Control
  • Pressure Control Circuits
  • Pneumatic Power Systems
  • Basic Pneumatic Circuits
  • Principles of Pneumatic Pressure and Flow
  • Pneumatic Speed Control Circuits
  • Air Flow Control and Measurement

Study Hydraulic and Pneumatic Components and Practice on Real-World Equipment

Amatrol’s basic fluid power training system features a welded-steel workbench with a hydraulic manifold and power supply and includes the basic hydraulics and pneumatics modules. These systems feature a wide variety of real-world components, including pressure reducing valves, needle valves, check valves, directional control valves, an air motor, a flow control assembly, pressure gauges, and rotameter and manometer assemblies. These industry-standard components allow learners to practice hands-on skills, such as connecting and adjusting the pressure setting of a sequence circuit, designing a hydraulic circuit that uses a pressure reducing valve, and connecting a pneumatic circuit given a schematic.

Expand Your System To Teach Intermediate and Advanced Hydraulic and Pneumatic Concepts and Skills

Users who want to move beyond basic hydraulics and pneumatics can easily expand their system by adding optional learning systems, such as: intermediate (85-IH) and advanced (85-AH) hydraulics; intermediate (85-IP) and advanced (85-AP) pneumatics; and electro-hydraulic (85-EH), electro-pneumatic (85-EP), and electro-fluid power (85-EF) systems.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia for On-The-Go Learning

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. The basic fluid power training system curriculum teaches learners about basic hydraulic and pneumatic concepts, such as circuit connections, basic motor circuits, fluid friction, meter-in and meter-out circuits, pressure reducing valves, schematics, pressure and volume, and flow control valves.

The curriculum also features a virtual trainer option that allows learners to gain skills through realistic simulation before using the real equipment. The combination of theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills solidifies understanding and creates a strong basis for pursuing more advanced skills.

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.
