Prop Scan RBM

                            Measuring Assemblies

 

 

Attached is the new Prop Scan RBM and all the Kits that configure the RBM for different capabilities.

 

Image 1 -- The RBM in its normal Rotating Beam Measuring Assembly configuration.

 

Image 2  --  The Lift Kit is added to lift the Beam higher so as an overlap arm that is connected to the Probe can roll over the trailing edge without hitting the Beam. Looking at Image 1 you unbolt the Beam Bracket from the ARS Barrel and fit the Lift Kit.

 

Image 3  --  The Cone Kit aligns the Prop Scan and takes out the Off Axis error. The chuck clamps on the shaft. The bottom Cone contains a bearing allowing the propeller to rotate during measuring. With Image 1 you have to walk around with the Beam during measurement.

 

Image 4  --  O/A Align Kit provides precision adjustment for propellers with Off Axis problems. The bottom Chuck Assembly contains a bearing allowing the propeller to rotate during measuring. With Image 1 you have to walk around with the Beam during measurement.

 

Image 5  --  Suspend Kit with Centre. The ARS Barrel & Chuck are removed from the RBM. The Suspend Kit is mounted above and the Beam Bracket / Beams / Counterweight are fitted to the Post. The ARS Centre is attached to the bottom of the Post. The Center in the bottom of the ARS connects to the Prop Bore Plate. The ARS supplies the angle signal to the electronics.

 

Image 6  --  Suspend Kit with Chuck. The ARS Barrel & Chuck are removed from the RBM. The Suspend Kit is mounted above and the Beam Bracket / Beams / Counterweight are fitted to the Post. The ARS Chuck is attached to the bottom of the Post. The small ‘Propeller Chuck’ is mounted into the Propeller Bore. The ARS Chuck clamps to the Spindle of the Propeller Chuck. The ARS supplies the angle signal to the electronics.

 

Image 7  --  Suspend Kit with Centre or Chuck & Cone Kit. Same as Image 5 & 6 however the Cone Kit is used. The ARS supplies the angle signal to the electronics.

 

Image 8 & 9  --  The RTPB Kit - The RBM is transformed into a RTPB (Rotating Table Post and Beam). The ARS Barrel & Chuck are removed from the Beam Bracket. The ARS Barrel & Chuck are turned upside down and placed on the Measuring Table. The Propeller mounts on the ARS Barrel & Chuck. The Beam Bracket / Beams / Counterweight mount to the Post.
