This article provides some guidelines on cleaning and disinfecting simulators and simulator equipment. WARNING: ONLY solutions permitted to clean avionics screens, genuine or otherwise etc. should be used. Don’t spray cleaners directly onto the item. Don’t get moisture into any openings. Use caution when cleaning polycarbonate lenes covering the CGI (Computer Generated Instruments). Recommendations Frasca […]
Center the pulley, then hand tighten the Centering Bolts to hold the actuator in place.
Power down the simulator if is running. Locate the Control Loading Actuator.
The Control Loading Load Cell senses the force applied by the pilot, and the Motor Controller monitors the load cell through the Load Cell Interface board.
The Timing Module synchronizes the timing between the software model on the Control Loading Computer and the Motor Controllers.
The Servomotor is responsible for the forces imposed on the flight controls. The brushless servomotor consists of a permanent magnet rotor with three-phase 8-pole wire wound fixed stators.
The Control Loading Actuator provides an appropriate range of force and travel at the pilot control.
Each Load Cell Interface Board is directly connected to the Load Cell and the Accelerometer (optional) and is typically installed on the Actuator assembly.
The Motor Controller provides control and commutation for the servomotor based on a desired torque, which in turn moves the motor and controls.
The Control Loading Computer runs a real-time model, which computes the control forces for the Control Loading system.
