LabVIEW, Portable Test Controller (PTC), Automation, Electro-Hydraulic (EH), Actuator and Smart Controller Unit (SCU), Automated Test System.
In Aerospace Industry, Automated Test System at the qualification and certification laboratory improves characterization accuracy and plays a vital role to prove the airworthiness of the aircraft components. It is very helpful in achieving high quality standards of aircraft components by meeting the predefined qualification and certification test criteria. This paper outlines a comprehensive design and development of an Endurance Automated Test System for performing qualification and certification testing of Electro-Hydraulic (EH) Aircraft Actuator uses LabVIEW Graphical Test Software platform. This method is aimed at replacing the tedious and time consuming traditional method of performing the endurance testing for Aircraft Actuators.
