Equipment set TP 501 – Basic level: Basic training in hydraulics

The classic reissued

The solid basis for practical basic and further education. Training package TP 501 contains only purely hydraulic control systems.

The number and version of the components are specifically adapted to the projects in the workbook. This is a cost-effective way of achieving the important training objectives.

TP 501, Basic Level is suitable for basic training in hydraulic control technology and imparts knowledge of the basic physical principles of hydraulics, as well as the function and use of hydraulic components.

Pure convenience

  • Easy and exact switching of hand lever valves
  • Simple and precise setting of the flow and pressure valves thanks to the ergonomic handwheels and the fine resolution
  • Tool-free, single-hand operation with quick action mounting system Quick-Fix
  • Easy and secure plugging and releasing of the new, low-leakage, self-sealing quick connection couplings

Delivered in practical, Systainer-compatible equipment trays. The trays, in turn, fit exactly into the drawers in Learnline workstations.
