Hydraulics Trainer, Fundamentals, Extended


DAC #701E Hydraulics Trainer

This self-contained, portable, benchtop hands-on training system, developed in cooperation with TII Technical Educations Systems, enlarges the scope and improves the usefulness of our standard #701 Hydraulics Trainer. It provides an in-depth introduction to hydraulic system technology, electro-hydraulic systems and related applications.

The associated curriculum allows for 25-30 hours of instruction in hydraulic principles using industrial-grade components, including valves, cylinders and measuring instruments. This extended trainer includes two additional hydraulic cylinders with sensors, solenoid actuated valves and other supplemental components, allowing for electro-hydraulic applications. Twenty-five individual learning activities are provided. Course materials can be used in a self-paced or instructor-lead format.

The device includes a centrifugal pump and a clear acrylic reservoir, eliminating the need for additional support equipment. All components necessary for experiments, including connecting hoses, are included.

The training hardware, together with its associated student manual and instructor guide creates a complete introduction to hydraulic system technology, appropriate for industrial training or educational use.
