This file contains a hydraulic lift table using Simscape. Models of physical components, such as valves, hydraulic cylinders, motors, and analog circuits, are assembled from Simscape Foundation Library components. Alternate component models using blocks from the Simscape add-on libraries are included to show additional parameterization options and physical effects available in those libraries. A SimMechanics model of the scissor mechanism in the lift table is also included, which automatically produces a 3-D animation of the lift.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.
