Landing Gear Drop Test

  |  
Application Summary
Landing gear manufacturers utilize load cells to measure shock forces and fatigue ratings during quality assurance examinations. FUTEK’s LCA Family offers a robust miniature design for these high capacity measurements.
Products in Use
Miniature Column Load Cells (LCA Family) paired with Instrumentation (IAC200, IPM650, IHH500, or USB Solutions) and SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software. View Product Details
Load Cell - Landing Gear Drop Test
How it Works
  1. Aviation engineers are required to perform a series of quality and fatigue tests on landing gear.
  2. Utilizing compressive load cells, these test engineers are able to gauge the load applied to the landing gear during touch down.
  3. Hydraulic actuators are typically used to perform these quality assurance checks.
  4. At the base of the platform several Miniature Column Load Cells (LCA Family) are installed. As the actuator propels the landing gear into free fall, these load cells monitor the forces applied to the undercarriage of the aircraft.
  5. This data can be summed together via FUTEK's IAC200 2–4 Channel Summing Junction Box and then read on either of our digital displays (IHH500 or IPM650) or streamed to our USB Solutions.
  6. Pairing the FUTEK SENSIT™ Software with this sensing system provides users with the ability to monitor up to 16 channels of measurement, as well as live graph and log data.
