The Pressure Transducer reads back the pressure of the pneumatic system.
The Airbag Dump Valves allows the release of pressure from the Pneumatic Arms that support the weight of the simulator.
The Pneumatic Arms are pressurized to bear most of the static weight of the cockpit base, cockpit interior, and pilots to make the moving mass buoyant, so that the Actuators have equal resistance to move in any direction.
Leave the power ON during all power calibration procedures. The +12 VDC Power Supply (180387-1) provides +12 VDC output to the VC Box and Servo Drive Ethernet Switches, and the VC Box.
DC Power supplies provide power to the various components installed in the Cueing Cabinet.
The AC EMC Filter provides broadband common and differential-mode attenuation for the Servo Drives in the Cueing Cabinet.
The Phase Brakes are large contactors that short the three phases of the linear Actuators together to prevent unintended motion when the Servo Drives are disabled.
The Proximity Switches are located at the end of travel for the linear Actuators.
The motor and encoder are integrated into one assembly; both connections are located on the Actuator.
The Servo Drives are connected to the Servo Drive Ethernet Switch, which is connected to the trainer network for diagnostics and maintenance.
