Load Cell - Jet Parachute Deployment
How it Works
When runway length is tight, military aircrafts deploy parachutes to assist in rapid deceleration.
These parachutes require extensive precision and endurance (fatigue) testing prior to use.
Utilizing either standard or customized Miniature Threaded In Line Load Cells in a wire tension measurement application allow quality inspection engineers to audit the tensile forces applied to the parachute cable throughout deployment and use.
These tensile forces can be read on a number of instruments, including our digital displays (IHH500 or IPM650) or streamed to a PC via our USB Solutions.
