Equipment set TP 502 – Advanced level: Hydraulics for advanced users

The new advanced level

The training package TP 502 builds on the material covered in training package TP 501 – Basic Level, and adds 15 new projects to it.

The course expands students' knowledge about the basic physical principles of hydraulics and the function and use of further hydraulic components.

In order to carry out the projects, users require the components and the necessary accessories from equipment set TP 501.

Hydraulics plus!

The new components provide added training value and relevant project tasks form the basis for advanced training in fundamental principles.

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