Aimed at Mechanical/Hydraulic related staff at all levels with no prior knowledge of electrics. Suitable for maintenance staff, service engineers, technical sales and project engineers.
This 3 day foundation course will introduce you to the electrics/electricals used in association with Fluid Power Systems.
This course is vital to all concerned as we move faster into the world of integrated systems engineering and your knowledge needs to extend beyond that of just hydraulics, so this course will help you towards expanding your skills and knowledge.
This course is CPD accredited by IQ and IOM3
- Stage 1 Hydraulics (or equivalent)
- This course aims to increase your practical skills and overall knowledge relating to the application of Electrical/Electronics for the control of Fluid Power Systems
- The course will improve your overall confidence in dealing with Integrated Systems and will enable you to follow safe working procedures whilst maintaining and managing such systems.
On completion of this course candidates will know:
- Describe why the basic electrical principles are important to modern Fluid Power control systems.
- Describe the application and function of common electronic/electrical components.
- Explain various methods of providing electrical power supply.
- Identify cable types, their application and termination methods used.
- Identify component symbols and interpret manufacturers technical documentation to safely handle, install, commission and fault find of these devices in a systems environment.
- Describe the methods used for safe fault-finding on a “Integrated System”.
During the practical section of this course candidates will engage in and apply the following skills:
- Read, interpret and utilise technical information of integrated systems when planning build, commissioning and test tasks
- Locate, identify and explain the function of electrical/electronic devices in a system
- Operate the build fluid power control systems circuits
- Carry out system monitoring and effective fault diagnosis of fluid power control systems
- Safely use a multi-meter and other diagnostic tools to assist in fault finding
