LORD Active Vibration Control Systems (AVCS) reduce vibration in the helicopter fuselage generated by the main rotor. Our AVCS provides state-of-the-art, patented algorithms that control steady state and transient vibration, even during start up. In the system, accelerometers measure aircraft vibration levels and signals are sent to a centralized computer. The computer interprets the signals and sends commands to force generators located throughout the aircraft. These force generators create "anti-vibration" that stops the progression of vibration due to the main rotor.

LORD offers both turn-key AVCS as well as AVCS components, adapting our product offerings to suit your specific vibration control needs. For more information, download a copy of the AVCS product bulletin:
