Basic Pneumatics Learning System - Single Surface Bench: 850-P1

A sample copy of the Basic Pneumatics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s multimedia 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 Pneumatics Training System | Hands-On Pneumatics Skills

Learning System: 850-P1

Amatrol’s Basic Pneumatics Learning System (850-P1) covers how to operate and install basic pneumatic systems, analyze performance, and design basic pneumatic circuits. Pneumatic power is a foundation of industry used in applications across fields like agriculture, pharmaceuticals, automation, and many more! The pneumatics training system requires a compressed air supply of dry, filtered shop air.

This hands-on pneumatics training system includes a mobile workstation, basic pneumatics panel, basic pneumatics instrumentation panel, and a pneumatic hose and fittings set. This system uses industrial quality components for durability and to help learners prepare for what they will encounter on the job. Learners will use these components to study major topic areas such as: pneumatic power systems, basic pneumatic circuits, principles of pneumatic pressure and flow, and pneumatic speed control circuits. The pneumatic training system covers basic pneumatic skills with the ability to add-on systems, such as Amatrol’s Intermediate and Advanced Pneumatics Learning Systems, to expand the range of pneumatic knowledge and skills.

Build Hands-On Pneumatic Skills with Real-World Components

Pneumatic training includes an array of pneumatic components including an air motor, cylinders, pressure gauges, filter regulator, rotometer, manometer, and many more! Learners will use these components to practice skills such as: use a cross to connect three circuit branches together; connect and operate a unidirectional pneumatic motor using a 3-way, manually-operated directional control valve; convert between gauge and absolute pressure; connect and read a flowmeter; and connect and operate a pressure port speed control circuit. This learning system also includes a mobile workstation constructed of heavy-duty welded steel that provides storage space for additional panels and a lockable drawer for pneumatic hoses storage.

Expand Your System for Additional Learning Opportunities

When you’re ready to go beyond basic pneumatics, you can add optional learning systems to the basic pneumatics 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.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia eLearning 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-P1 curriculum teaches learners about basic 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.

Expand Your Fluid Power Training | 850-P1 Education Systems

Amatrol's Fluid Power Learning System provides a solid foundation to build upon by adding a variety of optional expansion systems to teach

additional skills, such as bearing installation, laser alignment, and conveyor maintenance. All of these expansion systems include Amatrol's interactive eLearning.
