Instrumentation Boom

Housing the data acquisition and control hardware, and providing external I/O specific connectors to the required sensors, the boom is mounted to a post or wall within the test cell. This method allows for shorter signal conditioning runs, limiting noise on the signals.
To reduce cell wiring costs, the cable to the operator interface terminal in the external control room is a single TCP/IP cable. With two articulation points, the boom can be swung out of the way when removing or installing the UUT. The instrumentation boom includes an air conditioning unit to keep the hardware at optimal operating temperatures.

Landing Gear Dynamometer

Landing Gear Dynamometer
The Landing Gear Dynamometer uses our INERTIA test automation software, LabVIEW Real-Time and National Instruments SCXI/PXI to test aircraft landing gear systems.
The landing gear is mounted to an overhead carriage secured to the fixture base. The carriage includes a hydraulic actuator to apply a vertical load on the landing gear section and is instrumented with more than 200 strain gauges to measure the applied load. Mounted to linear slides on top of the fixture base and driven by a hydraulic actuator is a tarmac section. The system performs real-time control of both the tarmac section and the hydraulic loaded carriage to control and acquire data on the landing gear system as it moves down the tarmac. The system consists of more than 300 channels of I/O including 203 strain/load inputs.

Turbine Engine Dynamometer

Our turbine engine dynos use precision, frequency, force sensors, and conditioning for accurate measurements, and feature complex profile creation that includes the ability to create launch, take-off, landing, and cruising sequences. Learn more
