Ask Hytrol: How to Set the Speed on the E24i™ Motor

Posted by Hytrol Training on July 19, 2017

In today's Ask Hytrol video, we're going to demonstrate how to set the speed using the dip switches on the E24i™ motor.  There are six numbered dip switches located on the E24i motor. When the dip switches are aligned on the right, they are in the ON position. When they are aligned on the left, they are in the OFF position. Switches 1 and 2 are read only at power up, which means any changes to the switches will not work until the power is cycled to the E24i™.

Ask Hytrol: How to Upgrade the Switch on the ProSort 400

Posted by Hytrol Training on May 18, 2017

 

In today's Ask Hytrol, we're going to discuss how to upgrade your ProSort 400's switch to the latest configuration. First, remove the hex bolt on the rubber bushing mounting bracket. Disconnect the green airlines from the fittings on the cylinder. Loosen the jam nut on the cylinder rod so that the cylinder may unscrew from the rod end. Unscrew the rubber bushing from the cylinder's base. Once the old bushing is removed, add a drop of thread locker onto the new bushing stud and screw the stud tightly into the back of the cylinder. Hytrol recommends allowing the thread locker to cure for approximately 15 minutes.

The Biggest Problem with Training and How You Can Prevent It

Posted by Hytrol Training on April 18, 2017

When facilitating  a training event at Hytrol or at a customer's facility, we always ask participants to share their main goal(s) or objectives for the training so that we can confirm we meet them. Almost without fail, at least one response is, "My boss sent me."

It's disappointing to hear because it means the employee does not have a clear understanding of why they are in training in the first place and what the desired business outcome for their attendance is. Without that understanding, the employee is almost guaranteed to fail in transferring this new knowledge to their job.

According to the Association for Talent Development, organizations in 2015 spent an average of $1,252 per employee on direct learning expenditures. For even the smallest of organizations, that cost adds up quickly. Failure to drive successful learning transfer, or ability to apply the behavior/skills/knowledge acquired to their job, to actual business results is a very costly mistake.
