Energy Absorber Test System Facilitates Test of F-35 Actuators

Topics Covered
  • Electrohydrostatic Actuator
  • EHA Test Challenges
  • Test-System Basics

White Paper Overview

Methods of adjusting flight control surfaces have evolved since the early years of flight when simple mechanical linkages controlled the first adjustable surfaces, with the pilot providing the power. One stop along the way of this evolution was the incorporation of centralized hydraulic systems to deliver hydraulic power to operate actuators at each control surface. But these systems had significant drawbacks. In this white paper, learn more about the alternative to this, called Power-by-Wire (PBW), and explore: electrohydrostatic actuator, EHA test challenges test-systems, and more. Download the white paper today to see how custom-engineered test systems can provide optimum performance.

    Thank you for your white paper.  Please revise the photos to depict the aircraft that the white paper discusses (F-35…not the F-15 depicted twice).
