This certificate covers the function, operation, and application of common components used in fluid power circuits and systems. It also assesses the understanding of how fluid power components and accessories are placed together to create circuits and systems for powering industrial machines. The major emphasis is on pneumatics with a lesser emphasis on hydraulics and vacuum systems. Electro-fluid power troubleshooting is emphasized. Topics include: Circuits and logic, compressors and conditioners, connectors, directional control valves, electro-fluid power, filters, fittings, flow control & relief valves, gages and instruments, hoses, lubricators, metal tubing, motors, pressure sequence valves, pump and reservoir, regulators, safety, theory, threaded pipe, troubleshooting & testing, an vacuum.
This certificate test is intended for entry-level mechanics, technicians and technologists who will be involved in the application, installation, modification or troubleshooting of Fluid Power systems.
This certificate is aimed at skilled electrical technicians working relatively independently in the assembly, test, startup, troubleshooting, maintenance, repair or upgrade of electro-mechanical machines or systems. It should be a prerequisite for technicians wishing to move on to industrial machines controlled by PLC’s or to industrial machines utilizing velocity, acceleration or other motion control techniques.
