Abstract:

The research objective has been to determine what design revisions will be necessary to ensure adequate performance of the miniature baroswitch and setter. Tests of the baroswitch assembly have verified that temperature and settability errors are acceptably small. Range of the first model has been extended to 50 mbs in lieu of fixed-set contacts. Reasonable compensation accuracy appears to be or - 2 mbs over range -3 to 65,000 ft. Vibration troubles so far limit usable range of baroswitch assembly to frequencies below 700 cp. It may be necessary to revise mounting to support unit on plane through c. g. This would increase package dimensions. Author
