Introduction to Proportional Hydraulics

This course at our Technology Training Centre in Aston, Birmingham is aimed at employees who are familiar with basic hydraulic and electro-hydraulic principles and are required to have a more in depth understanding of how proportional control systems work.  It is a useful course to develop an understanding prior to operating, maintaining and programming PLC systems and will cover theory aspects as well as practical exercises to demonstrate the underlying principles.
