Intelitek Hydraulics Curriculum

Intelitek Hydraulic Technology curriculum introduces students to the principles of hydraulics and hydraulically controlled systems commonly used in automated manufacturing environments. Using Hydraulic simulation software, trainees create, modify, operate, and observe simulated industrial grade hydraulic and electro-hydraulic devices and circuits. Students will connect different components, change physical parameters, and observe system responses.


Hydraulics Technology 1: Fundamentals of Hydraulics

The Hydraulics Technology 1 course introduces students to the principles of hydraulics and the use of fluid power in automated manufacturing environments. Students create, modify and operate hydraulic and electro-hydraulic circuits. Using industrial components, students conduct applied science experiments to demonstrate the physical principles of fluid power.

Hydraulics Technology 2: Fundamentals of Electro-Hydraulics

In the Hydraulics Technology 2 course students create, modify, operate and observe simulated hydraulic and electro-hydraulic devices and circuits. They also have the opportunity to configure and connect simulated components to create a variety of applications, changing physical parameters and observing system responses.

Hydraulics Technology 3: Advanced Hydraulics & Electro- Hydraulics

The Hydraulics Technology 3 course introduces students to advanced hydraulics and electro-hydraulics and the use of fluid power in automated manufacturing environments. Students use software to create, modify, operate and observe simulated hydraulic and electro-hydraulic devices and circuits.

HydraMotion

HydraMotion software is a computer-aided design tool that teaches students how to design and operate hydraulic and electro-hydraulic circuits. HydraMotion enables the study of hydraulics principles and technology. The software’s HMI animation provides an accurate working simulation of hydraulic devices and circuits.
Users can change the default parameters of the hydraulic components, such as cylinder diameter and pump flow. Software algorithms adjust the system’s response to present a realistic hydraulic system response. The system’s hoses are considered ideal and there is no pressure drop on lines drawn by the user.
