Live Listening Schedule! Educational Video Library To help educators across the country access more virtual fluid power content to use in the classroom, we are now sharing videos of real-life examples of various fluid power technologies from NFPA member companies and fellow educator partners. These videos are free to use for educational purposes. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about the realm of fluid power technologies and the different career path opportunities. This can also help students become familiar with how specific products work while also starting to learn about the individual companies in the industry so that they are more educated about where to look for internships/jobs, and even when making purchasing decisions once they’re in the workforce. If you have an educational video that you feel would be beneficial to students learning about fluid power, please send them to Amy Zignego at NFPA for consideration.

Studio 5000: Simple Project 1 – The Seal-In with Mulitple Permissives – Murray State University Program designed to seal in a motor when the start button is pressed. The motor will remain running even when the operator is not pressing the start button. The start button is normally open. The normally closed Estop, the normally open over-speed switch, and the normally closed Line Estop will all stop the motor.
