Optimization and Validation of Pressure Switch Diaphragm for Lift Axle System

2024-10-17
2024-28-0018
Lift axle system is widely used in trucks and trailer to enhance the load carrying capacity by lowering the axle. Nowadays, this raising or lowering the axle is automated using electronic pressure switch. The Electronic pressure switch is used to sense the pneumatic pressure from Load Detection valve in Lift Axle control system and activates the solenoid valve which aids in filling the air in the lift bellows. The configuration used in this switch is Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) which has 3 terminals such as 1 common contact,1 Normally open (NO) & 1 Normally closed (NC). The contacts of the switch change its state at forward switching pressure and returns to its normal state at the reverse switching pressure. Rubber diaphragm is one of the critical elements in this pressure switch which is used to avoid any leakage during the pressure transfer from the load detection valve. This rubber diaphragm is placed between the outer body of the switch and sensor holder.

Safety Management Systems for Design, Manufacturing and Maintenance Providers in Aviation

2024-09-16
A Safety Management System (SMS) is a high-level, top-down decision-making system based on proactively identifying, assessing, and controlling hazards and safety risks in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance environments. These systems are designed to prevent accidents and incidents and analyze performance data for continuous improvement. Safety Management Systems have become an internationally recognized means to improve hazard and risk identification, risk management and safety assurance. The SMS approach promotes a proactive and systematic approach to managing safety throughout the lifecycle of an aircraft or system.
