Lanyard Quick Release Connector Qualification Testing
Lanyard Disconnect Testing
DTB’s new high speed lanyard disconnect fixture is a unique and completely customizable fixture that provides disconnect speeds up to 382 in./sec. within 6 in. During the simulated firing scenario, 10,000 data points/sec. are collected. The speed, slack of the lanyard, clocking of the keyway, and the angle of release are all set prior to the simulated ejection. The pull force, electrical disconnect, speed, and displacement are all captured during the release.
DTB has also implemented the ability to perform the ejections at temperatures within the range of -65°F-220°F.
As with all ordnance release testing, high speed video is available, including at various temperatures.
