PRODUCTION ENGINEERING MEASURE FOR RUGGEDIZED TAUT BAND SUSPENSION PANEL METERS PER SIGNAL CORPS TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS SCS-43A
WESTON INSTRUMENTS INC NEWARK N J
A complete solution to the problem of balance change during the ruggedization tests was achieved. Coil reinforcing techniques, including an improved cementing process, were successfully applied to the 100, 180, and 250 degree meters. Satisfactory results after the ruggedization tests of vibration, tumbling and high shock were obtained on approximately 50 meters of the various sizes and range specified in the contract. The construction of the pre-production samples of all ranges of the one-inch, 180-degree meters, namely 0-1 milliamp, 0-50 volts, 0-100 microamps, 0-25 microamps, and 15-0-15 microamps has been initiated. Environmental testing of the 100-degree, VU meter was started to determine what tolerances will result from the non-linear circuit of this meter. Final drawings of the 100degree and 180 degree meters have been reviewed by the Engineering, Manufacturing, Assembly and Methods Departments. All drawings have been brought up to date and released to the Manufacturing Department. The preparation of assembly and manufacturing specifications has begun. Final release of these specifications will be deferred until preprodution samples have been completed. Author
