Learners view an animation of a counterbalance valve in operation and examine the valve’s internal structure.
Visual Logic Basic Programming: Using Flow Charts
By Jason Vosters
In this learning activity you'll understand what flow charts are and how they're used to create computer programs.
The Op Amp Integrator
By Terry Fleischman
The learner will understand the circuit configuration and operation of an integrator op amp.
Active Region Operation of a Transistor
By Terry Bartelt
Learners view the operation of an NPN transistor in the active region.
Pressure Relief Valves
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of a hydraulic relief valve and its internal components. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Hydraulic Color Code
Learners read an explanation of the color code used on schematic diagrams for hydraulic circuits. Circuit examples for each color are shown.
Comparing Electronic and Hydraulic Components
Learners read about the similarities of electronic and hydraulic components and then match the schematic symbols in a drag-and-drop exercise.
By Terry Bartelt, Stephen Schneider
In this animated object, learners examine the internal structure of an unloading valve. This learning object includes a video clip demonstrating the use of an unloading valve in a metal stamping application.
Hydraulic Cylinder Speed
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine why the piston of a hydraulic cylinder extends slower than it retracts. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Pneumatic Directional Control Valves
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of two-way, three-way, and four-way directional control valves used in pneumatic systems.
The initial illustration shows a cylinder that needs to EXTEND to raise the load! However, the remainder of the example shows a cylinder that must RETRACT to raise the load!!!
