OEM’s for Flight Simulators

Problem

All across the world, there are flight training schools where pilots can get certified to fly a particular type of aircraft. At these schools, large, multi-million dollar motion simulators use 6-Axis of motion to simulate the motion of an actual aircraft.

Competitive LDT’s have been used in these applications for years, with many older models now becoming obsolete. Thus, this leaves simulator manufacturers with no option but to redesign their systems to prevent any failures.

Solution

Either analog or digital style LTD’s are used by the majority of these OEM’s. In fact, the 953 VMax is available with analog, digital and SSI outputs that can operate from 7 to 30 volts DC, making it a drop-in replacement in many applications.

Benefits

  • Works with an existing power supply, thereby eliminating the need to change power supply to meet new voltage input requirements
  • LTD’s can be accompanied with a 5 pin Amphenol connector that can be used to remove the MTS ’AOM’ (Analog Output Module) from the system, and plugs directly into any existing cabling

Conclusion

The rugged construction of the 953 VMax eliminates downtime and has proven to be successful in many simulator applications.
