Mid-Size Satellite Fixture Standard Options:

 Index Plate (IND30):

An index plate will be mounted to the gearbox input shaft to lock out accidental rotation of payload.

Optional Casters:

  • (C10) – Ø10” X 3.25” wide phenolic wheel casters with steering bar receptacles, brakes and swivel locks.  The kit comes with (quantity 4) steering bars and steering bar stowage features mounted to the base frame.

Secondary Axis of Rotation Structure (SA):

Adding the secondary axis of rotation option gives the operator the ability to both tilt and rotate the cantilevered payload.

Standard Proof Load Test (PLT):

Proof Load Test Procedure:

Dynamic Load, visual inspection

  1. Dynamic proof load test (360° rotation of primary axis & secondary axis if applicable).
  2. 200% moment load on payload interface, 100% torque.
  3. Hold load for 5 minutes every 90° (minimum).
  4. Customer may witness test.
  5. Paint and plating covers all welds.
  6. Visual inspection only for cracks, deformation, etc.

A deliverable proof load test report will be provided. The report will include a summary of the test procedure, actual measured weight of load applied, inspection results, and images of the test being performed.
