Hydraulically Operated Crate Transfer Mechanism

This example shows a hydraulically operated four bar linkage that transfers crates between platforms of different heights. The Body Force Interface subsystem uses a Prismatic-Translational Interface block with Spherical and Prismatic joints to connect a hydraulic cylinder between Ground C and Body B.

The hydraulic circuit is modeled in Simscape™. The rest of the mechanism is modeled in Simscape™ Multibody™ First Generation.
