HydraMotion

HydraMotion software is a computer-aided design tool that teaches students how to design and operate hydraulic and electro-hydraulic circuits. HydraMotion enables the study of hydraulics principles and technology. The software’s HMI animation provides an accurate working simulation of hydraulic devices and circuits.

Users can change the default parameters of the hydraulic components, such as cylinder diameter and pump flow. Software algorithms adjust the system’s response to present a realistic hydraulic system response. The system’s hoses are considered ideal and there is no pressure drop on lines drawn by the user.

In addition to simulation of virtual circuits, HydraMotion can control actual electro-hydraulic circuits. When connected to the JMTS training panel, the software provides on-line graphic tracking of circuits in operation. (Requires computer interface control unit)
