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 Simscape Multibody model of the scissor mechanism in the lift table is also included, which automatically produces a 3-D animation of the lift.

it would be very helpful if you could provide description files for the construction of the models and control of motion
thank you
