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 Modules are identical to the Combo Module, but have different firmware. They handle all the high speed servo loop calculations.
TruFeel control-loading system simply simulates a spring, with a variable spring constant, variable dampening, and variable center point. This is done with a closed loop position based feedback and a force sensor to remove the motor back-drive and friction. The servo loop runs at 2Khz, with a real time safety and auto calibration routine.
The quickest way to diagnose a problem in a TruFeel system is usually to start by checking the TruFeel Fault Codes.
