Low Profile Avionics Mounts (AM Series)
Low profile, all-direction vibration and shock mounts for avionics equipment and other sensitive devices
LORD Corporation's Low Profile Avionics Mounts (AM Series) set the standard for compact, high-load, high capacity isolators. They are designed to support and protect avionics equipment in all types of aircraft. Inertial guidance and navigation systems and radar components are examples of applications where these mounts are used. In addition, AM Series Mounts are used to isolate engine/aircraft accessories such as fuel controls, pressure sensors and oil coolers.
The Low Profile Avionics Mounts are tested and approved to the environmental tests appearing in MIL-STD-810 or MIL-E-5400. Tables show the sizes, capacities and the spring rates of these vibration isolators. They may be used in a temperature range of -65°F to +300°F for BTR and -40°F to +300°F for BTR® II.
Low Profile Avionics Mounts are made with specially compounded silicone elastomers which exhibit excellent resonant control. This is evidenced by the low transmissibility at resonance. These designs also provide linear deflection characteristics.
Typical installation of AM Series Mount requires small attachment holes and a large clearance hole for the through bolt and nut. The clearance hole diameter should be equal to the nut width (across corners) + TRx (max. D.A. input at resonance).
Typical example of back-to-back mount installation. When the load persupport point exceeds the load rating of a single mount, the mounts can be installed back-to-back thereby doubling the capacity and the spring rate.
