The following example is based on replacing a position potentiometer for the Elevator Control. Ensure that power to the system is off (Circuit Breaker – OFF)
Frasca has manufactured several different types of control loading systems over the years. Several factors are used when determining which type of system is to be installed on a particular FTD.
A compressor that applies pressure to the elevator, aileron, and rudder controls provides the “feel” of the flight controls and elevator weight. The compressor applies pressure in direct proportion to a signal from the host that varies with airspeed.
This describes the alignment and calibration of the position sensors in an ECL system.
