In this animated activity, learners examine how an adjustable pressure-reducing valve can produce a pressure that is lower at its output than at its input.
The DC Motor
By Terry Bartelt
Learners examine the wiring of the primary components of the three types of DC motors, series, shunt, and compound. The operational characteristics of each type of motor are described. A quiz completes the activity.
PLC Output Modules
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
The learner will understand the operation and configuration of various types of PLC output modules and how they're used.
The Variable Reluctance Stepper Motor
Learners view colorful animations showing the operation of a VR stepper motor.
Hall-Effect Sensor Application
Learners view practical examples of how a Hall-effect sensor is used.
Methods of Producing Electricity
In this learning activity you'll review the six different ways in which electricity is produced: chemical, friction, heat, light, magnetism, and pressure.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. A brief quiz completes the activity.
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.
