This one-day course is designed to assist electrical and mechanical technicians in the field. A prerequisite to this course would be basic hydraulic knowledge. Attending our Principles in Hydraulics would be preferred. The mechanic will be exposed to the various types of proportional valves and the physics behind how they work with a priority on troubleshooting. Command vs feedback signal will be highlighted and Closed vs Open loop control will be discussed.
Students will get hands-on training with a driver simulator and valve to enhance the learning experience. By the end of the course the student should have a basic understanding of proportional valve technology and
a troubleshooting guideline that can be used to keep equipment operating effectively.
