Solid State Fatigue Meter
Advances in solid state electronics and sensor design enabled AMETEK Aerospace to introduce a system that performs the same functions as an electromechanical fatigue meter or counting accelerometer, more reliably. The fatigue meter is an integrated set of sensors, data acquisition equipment and software. It includes an external data port for ground personnel to upload configuration information and download event and usage information, and it can store information for over 300 flights. Additionally, when the memory is 95% full the pilot is warned that a download must be performed soon so not to overwrite data. The fatigue meter stores the G level counts for each individual flight and for the total flights. A selectable flight mission input allows the pilot to record the mission scheduled for each flight. The unit contains an internal clock/calendar set by the Ground Support Equipment, and includes a low battery alert.
AMETEK Aerospace has built a reputation for supplying innovative products for the aviation industry. The fatigue meter system provides rugged reliability and intelligent design that takes advantage of the latest developments in electronics. Its advanced design offers years of reliable service monitoring the structural life of the aircraft
