Load Abort Components

Protect aerospace test articles and lab personnel in the event of a mechanical malfunction

Damage to an aerospace structural test article can cost a test lab millions of dollars and thousands of lab hours. The stakes are simply too high not to have proactive measures in place to manage a power outage or mechanical malfunction during a test.

The MTS Active Load Abort (ALA) System effectively protects test articles and lab personnel from the excessive — and often uncontrolled — energy present in a test rig when an unexpected event arises.

The MTS ALA System provides complete control over planned loading and unintended unloading of multichannel structural test systems. Combining advanced FlexTest® controls, AeroPro™ software and a unique hydraulic manifold design, the system reduces all actuator loads to a neutral state at precisely the same time, regardless of varying pressures and positions of individual actuators.

MTS also offers more economical passive (conventional mechanical) load abort technology to effectively unload hydraulic pressure in a variety of other structural testing applications. These constant-velocity manifolds protect test articles by incorporating an adjustable orifice that controls the flow rate of hydraulic fluid from each actuator.
