Examine the components of a hydraulic system.
How to Reset a Counter
By Terry Bartelt, Tom Yapp
In this animated object, learners examine the proper way to reset a counter instruction in a programmable controller.
Manual Control of a Reciprocation Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
This animated lesson shows how pushing a start or stop button on a ladder circuit causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to extend and retract.
The Induction Motor Slip
In this animated object, learners examine how the rotation of an induction AC motor's armature slips behind the synchronous rotational speed of the stator's field to create magnetic fields. These fields interact and produce torque. A quiz completes the activity.
Gradation - Calculations
By Steve Whitmoyer
This learning object introduces the student to the calculations involved in a sieve analysis -- including percentage retained and percentage passed.
The Time-of-Flight Flowmeter
Learners view animations showing how a time-of-flight flowmeter uses ultrasonic sound waves to measure the flow of a liquid.
By John Casey, Terry Bartelt
In this animated learning object, learners examine how an ultrasonic flowmeter measures the flow of liquids through a pipe using ultrasonic sound waves. A short quiz completes the activity.
The Reynolds Number
In this animated learning object, users study the factors that affect a pipe’s fluid flow and how those factors pertain to a numerical value (the Reynolds Number).
By James Bourassa
In this animated object, learners examine the situation that occurs when any two links of a mechanism lie in the same plane or on a straight line. Crank-sliders and crank-rockers are shown.
The Hydraulic Pressure Switch
This animated lesson shows several ways that a hydraulic pressure switch, connected in a ladder circuit, causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to perform various applications.
