Single-Cycle Reciprocation Circuit
In this animated lesson, the learner examines how a ladder circuit causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to make a single extension and retraction.
Learners read an explanation of the RL time constant and examine the formula for calculating the instantaneous current value. The current is graphed as it climbs to maximum or drops to zero. Note* In the formulas in this module, the Greek letter epsilon should be the mathematical constant 'e'.
