Hydraulics is the hybrid technology, which combines oil hydraulics, electro-hydraulics, programmable
logic controllers (PLCs) and/or computers in complex hydraulic power systems.

HYD-3500 is a compact, hands-on, training system designed to provide a clear, comprehensive
and efficient teaching facility for this hybrid technology. Of brand new design, the training system
covers the latest developments in the field, especially as related to the widespread use of advanced
electronic control circuits, PLCs and computers in hydraulic power systems.

The expandable and highly flexible HYD-3500, in step with all the latest hydraulic developments, has
the modular capability to be tailored to a broad population profile including voc-techs (vocational
schools), civil and military technical schools, polytechnics, colleges for further education, interdisciplinary faculties and specially, industrial training centers.

The system features a very high degree of modularity and flexibility. The system can function in a
basic stand-alone workstation configuration with or without PC support, or as a Computer Managed
Laboratory (DCML). Addition of a PC (not included) and computer assisted courseware, provides
the key to an interactive environment and simulation capability to enhance the learning process.

The HYD-3500 system’s basic unit comprises a compact desktop universal master board (HYD-
3501), four sets of industrial hydraulics (HYD-3510, 3520, 3530, 3540) component boards and
comprehensive theory and practice manuals.
