Model #Hydromodel-200

SMC Transparent Hydraulics Training System

A true, one-of-a-kind training system from SMC! The HYDROMODEL-200 meets industrial training needs related to Hydraulics in a very visual way.

All hydraulics components are made up of a transparent methacrylate body with internal industrial metal hydraulic parts.  This allows students to see inside the hydraulics components as they operate and actually see the hydraulic fluid moving. No Hydraulics Training System in the world does for student understanding of Hydraulic Theory what the Hydromodel-200 does in a simple, visual way.

A true, one-of-a-kind training system from SMC! The HYDROMODEL-200 meets industrial training needs related to Hydraulics in a very visual way.

Training System Design

All components are made up of a transparent methacrylate body with internal industrial metal parts, allowing students the ability to see inside the components as they operate. No Hydraulics Training System in the world does for student understanding of Hydraulic Theory what the Hydromodel-200 does in a simple, visual way.

The parts are made up of a transparent methacrylate body with internal industrial metal parts. Using this system, it is possible to see inside the components as they operate, becoming familiar with them and understanding how they work.

Clean and Dripless Hydraulics Training System

HERMETIC CONNECTIONS – The hoses, as well as the different devices, are connected to each other with a system of quick-fit self-sealing connectors NW4 1/8”. This system guarantees a maximum level of fluid integrity with ZERO LEAKAGE even during connection / disconnection operations.

FIXING TO THE PANEL – Each component includes a fixing system to aid quick and simple preparation of practical exercises.

SMC Skills Gap

Our SMC Training Systems are designed around SKILLS.

The skills needed by students, technicians, and engineers to be successful in industry today;

The skills for a changing workforce and rapidly evolving industrial future; and,

The skills to create the future leaders of industry.

SMC Training Systems are focused on critical thinking skills and technical mastery of technologies and concepts - our goal is NOT to train students on how to follow instructions; but rather how to empower oneself with the tools (technical aptitude) to be successful in the career of their choosing.


SMC's Technology Trainers are built upon the principle that a solid foundation is paramount to creating students with technical expertise in their field, regardless of how advanced it may be.

SMC Technology Trainers are best-in-class modular training platforms that are complete with step-by-step curriculum and user manuals, simulation tools, and engaging digital solutions to further expand student understanding.

  • Basic Electrical Trainers - AC, DC, and Solid State
  • Pneumatics and Electro-Pneumatics
  • Hydraulics and Electro-Hydraulics
  • Mechanical Drives
  • Programmable Logic Controllers and Human Machine Interfaces
  • Industrial Robotics
  • Industrial (Motor) Controls
  • Process Control
  • Sensors and Smart Sensors
  • Vacuum Technology

Award Winning Simulation Software - autoSIM-200

SMC's autoSIM-200 software is the best turn-key software package for designing, viewing, simulating, monitoring and controlling Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Electrical, and Electronic Circuits.

autoSIM-200 is a one-for-one complement of SMC's hands-on training systems, allowing students to train by wiring circuits and programming systems virtually before applying them to the physical system.

The 2D and 3D packages allow for students to complete actual lab activities and curriculum exercises in the virtual simulator before completing them on the hands-on training equipment.

Comprehensive eLearning

Our engaging and interactive, web-based eLearning represents a major achievement of providing students "hands-on" training access in a virtual environment.

All major areas of Automation are taught in easy-to-digest bite-sized nuggets broken up into different topics such as Alternating Currents, Direct Currents, Solid State Devices, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Robotics, PLCs, Sensors, Process Control and More!
