SYSTEM FOR THE SAFE OPENING OF THE AIRCRAFT ACCESS RAMP

At present, when the ramp of an aircraft does not close and open correctly, repairing steps are done by the qualified personnel thanks to a specific electrical device that control the elements of the ramp of the airplane. However, if the operator does not follow the correct steps, the breakage of elements of the airplane can occur, with the consequent delay in repairing hours spent by the qualified person.

Since there is no security control system to avoid the incorrect use of the repairing control device, it exists the possibility of breakage and present device avoid said option.

Present device is directly connected to the modular unit ramp and comprises some switches according to the photo below which comprise a mechanical block device with a hook shape in order to avoid the switch on/off of the incorrect switch, therefore the security is guaranteed.

The device is an electrical box designed for the activation of the ramp lock actuator and for the activation of the ramp lock hook mechanism and comprises four switches:


- ENABLE switch
- PORTALON switch
- GANCHOS switch
- RAMPA switch

As indicated above and as can be seen in the photo below, the switch for the hook actuators (GANCHOS) of the ramp mechanism comprises a hook shaped device (red device) able to block the ramp switch in order to avoid the activation of the ramp when the ramp look hooks are opened. Also the block mechanism is included for the switch...
