Advanced Industrial Electro-Hydraulics



Regular price $15,995.00

The EXP6 is a complete training system that provides comprehensive, hands-on study of Open and Closed Loop electrical control of hydraulic systems using a Proportional Valve, PLC and components used by today’s employers.  Students will focus on hydraulic technology in its three areas of instruction: Physical Properties and Fundamentals, Applications, and Electro-Hydraulic Control and Logic.

Our training system is accompanied by a student manual and instructor’s guide. These focus on the background and applications of combining hydraulics and electrical control in industrially-relevant laboratory exercises. The curriculum begins with the fundamentals of pneumatics, which can be used as an introduction to the technology or as a review of key principles. Additional sections focus on different types of valves, cylinders, and pneumatic devices like vacuum Venturi generators, air motors, and rotary actuators.
