This article provides some guidelines on cleaning and disinfecting simulators and simulator equipment.
If you have an error on one Control Loading axis (for example, Elevator), you can identify which of the Elevator axis Control Loading components is causing the error by swapping components and retesting. If the error follows the swapped component to a different axis (for example, to the Aileron axis), you will know that component is faulty.
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.
This procedure is used to find the ETC+ Module, EECL Master Module, or TruFeel2 Module Firmware Bootloader and Application Version Numbers.
There are three locations to get Trufeel2 fault codes from.
The TruFeel2 system is an advanced design that accurately simulates the forces acting on the aircraft’s control surfaces in both static and dynamic conditions. These include but are not limited to Inertia, Trim effects, Friction, Control stops, Damping, Breakout force, Aerodynamic gradient, Backlash (or deadband), and Autopilot actuators.
The Control Loading Load Cell senses the force applied by the pilot.
The TruFeel 2 Module senses the position of the motor, reads motor torque from the Servo Drive, and monitors load cell output.
The Control Loading Actuator provides an appropriate range of force and travel at the pilot control.
