The invention relates to a device for damping the kinetic energy of a moving object and can be used to secure the lower shock load when landing seat with the pilot to the value transferred by the pilot.

Known shock absorber, comprising a housing and an energy-absorbing element with cutters (copyright certificate №989197 priority 02.07.1981 year).

The disadvantage of the shock absorber is that it has poor accuracy of controlling the intensity of the shock absorber due to the error of moving cutters and possible operator error during manual tuning of the shock absorber on the various efforts required for individual reduce congestion for pilots with different body mass.

The objective of the invention is to improve the accuracy of controlling the intensity of the shock absorber.

The problem is solved by the absorber represented by the figures 1, 2, 3, 4.

Figure 1 represents the installation of the shock absorber on a chair with a man.

Figure 2 is a General view of the shock absorber.

Figure 3 presents a diagram of the operation of the shock absorber.

Figure 4 represents the diagram of the system configuration of the shock absorber to the desired intensity.

The proposed absorber consists of a ratchet wheel 1 with radial grooves, the U-shaped incisors 2 with a predetermined width of the groove, mounted in a radial groove of the ratchet wheel, dogs 3, the axis of which is fixed outside of the ratchet wheel at the base of the shock absorber, the microswitch 4 fixation touch the dog tooth ratchet wheel mounted on the pawl 3, the stepper motor 5. The shock absorber is mounted on the seat 6. Energy-absorbing element 7, made in the form of a metal plate of constant width, held in the grooves of the U-shaped incisors 2, is fixed on the housing of the cabin 8. The number of the U-shaped incisors corresponds to the number of adjustment ranges of the intensity of the shock absorber. In figure 2 the number of cutters is 5, which corresponds to their use in the mass range of pilots from 50 to 120 kg Width of the groove is a U-shaped cutter is selected so that the chip thickness corresponded to the desired intensity.

To control the movement of the cutters used stepper motor 5 and the control unit 9, which sets the required number of steps and the angle of rotation of the ratchet wheel, and thereby setting the desired cutting tool in a working position.

Works as a shock absorber as follows.

First is the setting of the shock absorber to the desired energy intensity, which is a function of the mass of the pilot. When the larger mass requires more energy, which is achieved by increasing the thickness of the cutting by the cutter shavings with energy-absorbing element. Tothis remote control 9 of the stepper motor 5 is set to the number of steps of the motor shaft, turning the axis of the ratchet wheel 1 at the angle required for the installation of a U-shaped cutter 2 required width relative to the energy absorbing element 7, thereby the chip thickness. When turning the ratchet wheel 1 dog 3 monitors the teeth of the ratchet wheel, and when the rotation shaft of the stepper motor 5 to the desired angle, the dog falls in required to install a U-shaped cutter with the selected width of the groove in the depression between the teeth, thereby locking the hard setting of the cutter. Due to the existing uncertainty of the stepper motor 5 dog 3 may not reach all the way into the tooth ratchet wheel, and thereby to provide the required precision cutter. The microswitch 4 fixation touch the dog tooth ratchet wheel in this case does not work, and stepper motor 5 continues to rotate the shaft until the actuation of the microswitch 4, after which the stepper motor stops the rotation of the shaft, and thus the rotation of the ratchet wheel 1. The thickness of the cutting by the cutter chips is provided by the difference of the width of the energy-absorbing element 7 and the groove chosen when installing a U-shaped cutter 2.

Due to the presence of a U-shaped cutter with fixed thickness of the chip with energy-absorbing element, providing clearly fixed angle of rotation of the ratchet wheel, and thereby ensure the required installation of the cutter to the energy-absorbing element, exception error device move the cutter through the use of stepper motor significantly increases the accuracy of controlling the intensity of the shock absorber.

After adjustment by the pilot damper is ready for operation. Upon impact of an object on the ground together with the chair and placed it by the pilot, the load is transmitted to the damper casing, which together with the selected cutter moves relative to the energy absorbing element, and the edges of the U-shaped cutter cut chips on the edges of the energy absorbing element, thereby absorbing the energy of the blows.

The absorber unilateral action with adjustable intensity, comprising a housing, an energy-absorbing element with blades, characterized in that the damper casing is made in the form of a ratchet wheel with radial slots in which the fixed U-shaped incisors with a predetermined width of the groove, further introduced the dog, the axis of which is fixed outside of the ratchet wheel at the base of the shock absorber, a microswitch fixing touch the dog tooth ratchet wheel, and the axis of the ratchet wheel connected with the shaft of the stepper motor, and the energy-absorbing element is designed in the form of a metal plate of constant width, passing through the groove of a U-shaped cutter.
