Key benefits of Amfax's involvement
The resulting system was a generic test platform which allowed the end customers to strip and test Eurofighter hydraulic components without having to send them back to the manufacturer.
This vastly reduced the costs for supporting operational aircraft.
System safety and design innovation were key
Operator safety was a key consideration for the hydraulic test rig. Hydraulic power packs capable of delivering 360bar pressure or 180 l/m flow could do serious damage. Our solution's design addressed these concerns
System software and hardware used
LabVIEW was used as the primary development language for this project and delivered the following benefits :
The real time module for LabVIEW allowed us to make use of PXI RT hardware, broadening the scope and capability of this system.
Each type of hydraulic component needed its own test sequence with step by step limits and custom control conditions. TestStand was the natural choice for this and offered these benefits :
Test Bench hardware included
