Introduction to FluidSIM® Hydraulics

Introduction to FluidSIM® Hydraulics

Designed as a general introduction to the potential of this software tool. FluidSim is versatile for preparing instruction in educational establishments and vocational training, as experimentation and self-learning system, or as a CAD system for the design and testing of control systems.

The course uses a combination of short learning modules and hands-on exercises to convert theory and understanding into practical based knowledge.

Section 1 covers basic knowledge about designing, testing and simulating fluid power circuits. Delegates will learn about creating standard compliant drawings with an ease and confidence that other simulation and drawing programs have not previously achieved. By adjusting cylinder sizes, operating pressure and flow control, FluidSim simulates the behaviour of the system accurately.

Section 2 covers the integrated presentation software featuring complete slide sets and animated cutaway drawings on various topics. Of course it?s no problem to create your own presentations ? integrating graphics, text or video from other Windows programs.

Section 3 covers the interfacing with external hardware equipment such as programmable logic controllers, solenoid valves and input devices.
