Adapters can be designed and manufactured by Michigan Scientific, or we can provide guidance for customer manufacturing at no cost. Lightweight rim adapters are machined from aluminum forgings while standard rims are modified, welded, production rims. Lightweight hub adapters are machined from 6A1-4V Titanium, which greatly reduced added weight to the wheel. Standard adapters are high strength stainless steel.
Two piece rim adapters are made from a manufactured wheel barrel combined with a MSC manufactured adapter flange that mates directly with all MSC 12.8 transducers. Rim diameters range from 17 inches to 21 inches, and are available in many widths.
WFT Slip Ring Assemblies
The SR20AW/E512/AX LS7 and SR20AW/E512/AX7 Slip Ring Assemblies were designed specifically to be used with these transducers. These slip ring assemblies provide a means to transmit the rotating electrical signals from the wheel, to the stationary DAQ.
The simulation package has three components; the simulation mass, simulation adapter, and simulator cable. The mass is used to replace a WFT system in a simulator when the loads do not need to be measured. It has the same mass and stiffness as the complete WFT system. The simulation adapter is an adapter plate that is to be used to mount the simulator. The simulator cable then plugs directly into an amplifier, without a slip ring assembly.
