LORD Corporation's Low Profile Avionics Vibration Isolation Mounts (AM Series) set the standard for compact, high-load, high capacity vibration 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 vibration isolation 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.
