Electrohydraulic Components and Systems
This 27-hour seminar is designed to cover the knowledge of electro-hydraulic components including solenoid operated valves, proportional valves, servo valves and amplifiers. The seminar also covers the technicalities of in-field tuning of open-loop and closed-loop electro-hydraulic systems. The state-of-the-art Universal Fluid Power Trainers are used to demonstrate the theory presented.
Dates: October 8 - 12, 2018
Who Should Attend:
Application engineers, system integrators, motion control engineers, sales engineers, field engineers and end users of electro-hydraulic components.
Seminar attendees receive a copy of
“Electro-Hydraulic Components and Systems, Hydraulic Systems Volume 2”
Upon successful completion, you will be able to:
- recognize the difference in construction, principle of operation and characteristics between ON/OFF valves, proportional valves and servo valves.
- apply real-time control technique for EH systems and perform infield tuning to adjust the system performance.
- read the basic electronic schematics of the proportional/servo valve amplifiers.
- make the best selection of the components required to build open- and closed-loop electro-hydraulic control systems.
