Helicopter Pedal Force Testing

Application Summary
Anti-torque pedals control both the direction and yaw of a helicopter in flight. Utilizing pedal force sensors allow engineers to audit the precision of these controls.
Products in Use
LAU Series Pedal Force Sensor paired with Instrumentation (IPM650, IHH500, USB Solutions, or IAA Series Analog Amplifier). View Product Details
Load Cell - Helicopter Pedal Force Testing
How it Works
  1. Flight safety protocols often require rigorous reliability testing. Therefore, quality assurance engineers conduct audits on the anti-torque pedals of each helicopter.
  2. Utilizing FUTEK's pedal force sensors, these quality assurance engineers can measure the force required to operate each anti-torque pedal as it directs and propels the helicopter through flight.
  3. These force measures can be read upon a digital display, such as FUTEK's IPM650 Panel Mount Display or IHH500 Intelligent Digital Hand Held Display, or streamed to a PC utilizing FUTEK's USB Solutions.
  4. Once streamed to a PC, that data can then be monitored by FUTEK's SENSIT Test and Measurement Software. SENSIT can monitor up to 16 channels of measurement readings, as well as live graph and data log.
