PXI based aircraft hydraulic test rig
Amfax Limited

Amfax developed a hydraulic test bench to test the performance and functionality of hydraulic components used on the Eurofighter aircraft

 

 

The purpose of hydraulic test rig project was to provide a software solution to control a hydraulic test bench and execute sequences to test the performance and functionality of hydraulic components from the Eurofighter aircraft. Amfax developed the solution in conjunction with a hydraulic equipment manufacturer to design and develop both the software and the hardware. The resulting system was a generic test platform which allowed the end customers to strip and test Eurofighter hydraulic components without having to send them back to the manufacturer. This vastly reduced the costs for supporting operational aircraft.
