The operation of a hydraulic brake valve, including the internal components, is presented using animations.
Power Factor Correction
By Terry Bartelt
Students read an explanation of power factor in a power distribution and how it can be improved by using a power factor correction capacitor bank. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Voltage Regulation of a Zener Diode
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
The learner will understand how a zener diode maintains a constant voltage as the resistance values of a load change.
Pneumatic Power Supply
In this animated object, learners examine the parts of a pneumatic power system, including the prime mover, compressor, and receiver tank, and how they function.
Designing a Ladder Diagram
In this animated object, learners examine the design of a ladder circuit that provides manual control to a water pumping system. Students also study modifications to the circuit as the complexity of the system increases.
The Multiplication of Force by a Hydraulic System
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
Pascal's Law and Hydraulics
Using the principle of Pascal's Law, the learner will interpret the gauge readings in a hydraulic system to determine when the system is operating properly under various load conditions and when there is a defect.
The Hydraulic System
Examine the components of a hydraulic system.
Shear - Hydraulic - Adira - Operator's Panel
By Dave Hoffman
Picture of Adira hydraulic shear's operator's panel with part identification and instructions on how to start and stop the shear as well as setting stroke (cutting length).
Press Brake - Hydraulic
Identifies the parts of the hydraulic press brake featuring the Adira up-acting press brake. Interactive section asks to identify parts after first learning them.
