The latest generation of electric motion technology
The eM6-1070-9000 is a latest generation, fully electric 6 degrees of freedom motion system with a gross moving load of up to 9000 kg, designed for use in FAA, EASA level B but also suitable for level D and ICAO 9625 type VII flight simulation systems for both rotary wing and fixed wing aircraft.
This latest generation full electric motion technology is again improved in four key areas: Reliability, Motion Quality, Diagnostics and Motion Cueing.
The key features of the latest generation motion technology:
E2M offers a choice of mechanical interfaces in order to make integration into the simulator system as straightforward as possible. E2M offers it's own interface, featuring an integrated frame design, but can also match the interface of existing electric or hydraulic motion systems.
The patented E2M integrated frame design incorporates a new joint design. The joints are an integrated part of the frame which allows a reduced height of the complete simulator. This has the advantage of an improved performance because of a lower COG height and eye reference point. Furthermore, the frame is extremely rigid and strong which leads to cost reduction because E2M customers can build simulator cabins with less strength than would normally be required.
Additionally, the frame can easily be extended with outriggers to provide mounting points for a collimated display or direct projection system, an instructor station, a cockpit frame with integrated control loading actuators, or in case of rotary wing simulators, a three DoF X,Y,Z vibration platform (eM3-ROT-1500-HF cockpit shaker)
active RTH (Return To Home), enabling the motion system to move to settled from any lean-out condition in case of a facility power failure. The active RTH option is available to all E2M linear motion systems.
Since 2009, E2M has been using its Direct Workspace Management (DWM) motion cueing algorithm which is based on model predictive control technology. Its adaptive properties allow for minimum tuning effort for typical flight simulation applications in-air and on the ground.
Current developments are directed towards model predictive control on the basis of human motion perception aiming at increasing motion cueing fidelity while further reducing the tuning effort.
