Hands-on and comprehensive: Rexroth Expands Modular Training Systems with Mobile Hydraulics

Modular Training Systems

Modular Training Systems

Rexroth's three practically-oriented mobile hydraulics component sets – with corresponding documents for instructors and students – illustrates fundamental control principles for mobile hydraulics. The setup equipment for the DS4 universal multi-equipment carrier is particularly well-suited for small group instruction for developing independent solutions. The clear structure allows even those with no relevant experience to safely experiment with certified components.

The most prevalent load sensing (LS) mobile controls, load-independent flow distribution (LUDV), and throttle control (DRST) comprise the didactic core of the latest mobile hydraulics equipment sets. Based on 50 years of training experience, Rexroth has developed 27 project-based exercises for the three equipment sets with accompanying didactic training documents. The training units are highly practical-based and demonstrate the effects of changing load ratios on parallel unit operations, for example.

Additional exercises illustrate the differences between various control principles through comparative constructional systems. In addition, practically-oriented commissioning and diagnostics comprise a key focus of the didactic concept.

Quick couplings allow even beginners to connect hydraulic components safely and quickly. The equipment sets include both manual and hydraulic components. Safety pressure valves, temperature control, a pressure-compensated switching mechanism in idle position, and additional features guarantee continually safe operations. Shutoff takes place via a secure three-way valve.

As the only multi-equipment carrier for technical education and advanced training, the Rexroth DS4 component set is suitable for all drive technologies, industrial and mobile hydraulics, pneumatics, and mechatronic superstructures. Two groups can even experiment with various technologies on one multi-equipment carrier simultaneously.
