Hydraulics 2 Learning System | Introduction to Fundamental Hydraulic Principles

Hydraulics 2 Learning System: 96-HYD2

The Hydraulics 1 Learning System (96-HYD1) introduces industry-relevant hydraulic skills while showing how they apply to fundamental hydraulic principles, such as pressure and flow; this signature Amatrol approach to curriculum reinforces both theory and practice to produce a well-rounded understanding of the topic. As an example, after completing this learning system, learners will not only understand concepts like flow rate versus cylinder speed and pressure versus cylinder force, but also be able to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot basic hydraulic circuits for various applications.

The 96-HYD1 includes gauges, manifolds, cylinders, valves (relief/sequence, pressure reducing, check, directional control), flow meter, and hydraulic motor, as well as a 500 psi hydraulic power unit, manifold set with shutoff valve, and an Amatrol workbench. These components are all industrial quality not only to ensure durability, but also to help learners become better prepared for what they will encounter on the job. All Amatrol products are made from top-notch materials and carefully crafted (hand-welded and painted) to create tough, attractive, well designed learning systems that will facilitate learning for years.

Learning Topics

  • Hydraulic Power Systems
  • Basic Hydraulic Circuits
  • Principles of Hydraulic - Pressure and Flow
  • Hydraulic Speed Control
  • Pressure Control Circuits
  • Pumps
  • Hydraulic Schematics
  • Relief, Check, and Flow Control Valves

Industrial Standard Components and Durable Workstation

Each 96-HYD1 system features standard industrial-grade components. This attention to quality gives learners experience they would normally only get on the job by helping them recognize industrial components and troubleshoot them more effectively. The 96-HYD1’s mobile workstation is constructed of durable welded steel to provide a sturdy, long-lasting learning station. Storage slots are located under the work surface where learners can conveniently store component panels until they are needed. Additionally, the system’s orderly, user-friendly design helps learners to easily recognize how each component fits into a hydraulic circuit.

Real-World Conditions Lead to Real-World Results

Within the 96-HYD1’s interactive multimedia curriculum, learners will first study 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. By taking this approach, learners will understand each component’s function in a circuit, which makes troubleshooting easier in later lessons and on more advanced learning systems. Topics include pumps, gauges, hydraulic motors, cylinders, and numerous valves, including schematic symbols for each component, creating the ability for users to read and draw their own hydraulic schematics. The 96-HYD1’s multimedia offers a highly engaging format that features 3D graphics, video, interactive quizzes, and audio voiceovers of all of the text, as well as a Virtual Trainer Courseware (N12240).

Amatrol Offers Expanded Hydraulics Learning Options

In addition to Hydraulics 1, Amatrol also offers Hydraulics 2 (96-HYD2) and Hydraulics 3 (96-HYD3), which introduce advanced hydraulic components (pilot-operated check valves, two-position directional control valves, telescoping cylinders, etc.), explains how each works, and then shows how they relate to real-world applications


Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

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 850-HD1 curriculum teaches learners about basic hydraulic 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.
