Helicopter Cyclic Control Sensors

Application Summary
Flight controls require extreme auditing prior to in-flight use. FUTEK's MAU300 Gear Shift Load Cell provides quality assurance engineers with the appropriate tools to monitor the force applied to helicopter cyclic controls (joysticks).
Products in Use
FUTEK Multi-Axis/Gear Shift Load Cell (MAU300) paired with Instrumentation (IAA Series Analog Amplifier, IPM650 Panel Mount, IHH500 Digital Display, and USB Solution). View Product Details
Multi-Axis Sensor - Helicopter Cyclic Control Sensors
How it Works
  1. Helicopter cyclic controls (joysticks) are responsible for lateral and longitudinal movements of the aircraft.
  2. To ensure that these mechanism are operating properly, quality assurance engineers can install FUTEK's MAU300 Multi-Axis Gear Shift Load Cell into the shaft of each joystick.
  3. The MAU300 performs measurements in both the Fx and Fy directions.
  4. These force measurements can be read upon a digital display, such as FUTEK's IPM650 Panel Meter or IHH500 Handheld Display, or streamed to a PC utilizing FUTEK's USB Solutions.
  5. 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.
