An aerospace customer wants to test their propeller’s loads as it undergoes a multi-rotor system performance test. They want to measure the different vibrations, blade deflections, rotor tilts, and any other interferences the propellers may experience.
Interface suggests using the 6A Series 6-Axis, and mounting it between the propellers motor and the hydraulic actuator per propeller. The 6A 6-Axis load cell will measure the movements of the propeller’s on all axis, and can also be calibrated specifically to a single range or direction. Results can be displayed and logged using the BX8 8-Channel Data Acquisition and Amplifier when connected to a PC or laptop.
Interface’s 6A Series 6-Axis Load cell successfully was able to measure all axis of the propeller’s performance tests. When necessary, it was also calibrated to measure a single direction.
