  • Color-coded cutaway illustrations of hydraulic components to aid in understanding operation
  • Symbology updated to conform to ISO 1219
  • Expanded content on troubleshooting to include decision-tree aids
  • Detailed content on pressure, flow, and directional control valves
  • Improved graphics throughout and many real-life photos to assist in visualization
  • Basic hydraulic calculations useful in troubleshooting
  • Safety tips
  • Basic principles of electrohydraulic control – open loop and closed loop
  • Electrohydraulic valves
  • Sensors used in electrohydraulic systems
