UltraLOC™ Airline Seat Recline Products

UltraLOC™ Airline Seat Recline Products
Product Description

ITT Enidine Inc. has created the UltraLOC™ seat recline system for a new standard in seat recline technology. Seat locks are available in variable or fixed positions to meet all airline seat lock requirements. These units provide superior tensile load capacity and compressive power to improve the integrity of the seat. This gives seat designers versatile and dependable performance.

For longer-stroke uses, ITT Enidine Inc. also has the UltraLOC™ Premium Class design for first class and business seating. The UltraLOC™ Executive Class series is ideal for executive aircraft seating. The design includes long strokes and high load specials for aft-facing seats.

FAQ

Do the UltraLOC products have a warranty?

Yes, UltraLOC products are typically warranted for a minimum of 5 years.

Do the UltraLOC products interchange with other seat recline products?

Yes, most UltraLOCs are drop in replacements for other seat recline products.

How does the weight of UltraLOC products compare to other competitors products?

Typically the UltraLOC products are the lightest products available.

Is the fluid used in an UltraLOC hazardous?

MSDS information for the hydraulic fluid used in the UltraLOC is available from the manufacturer.

Is the UltraLOC tamper proof?

Yes, the UltraLOC can be made tamper resistant by applying a tie wrap to the adjustment cover. Reference ITT Enidine Inc. drawing PD-5578 for additional information.

What does PMA mean?

PMA is an acronym for Parts Manufacturing Approval. A PMA is issued to a U.S. applicant for the design of a part installed on a product, which was certified by the FAA to FAR 21.21.

What is an UltraLOC control cable?

The UltraLOC control cable is the device used to remotely actuate the UltraLOC.

What is meant by backlash of an UltraLOC?

Backlash is a measure of the UltraLOC's rigidity when a light load is applied to compress the UltraLOC.

What is meant by drift of an UltraLOC?

Drift is a measure of the UltraLOC's ability to prevent extension of the UltraLOC from a compressed position.

What is meant by override in an UltraLOC?

Override is a design feature of the UltraLOC which allows the seat back to be moved from a reclined position to an upright position without using the control cable.

What is meant by pin actuation force of an UltraLOC?

The pin actuation force is the force required to manually open the valve, which allows the UltraLOC to be compressed or extended.

What is meant by proof load of an UltraLOC?

Proof loading is a measure of the UltraLOC rigidity when a heavy load is applied to compress the UltraLOC.

What is meant by return time of an UltraLOC?

Return time is the amount of time it takes for the UltraLOC (under its own power) to return from its fully compressed to its fully extended position.

What is meant by unit output of an UltraLOC?

Unit output is the spring force of the UltraLOC external spring.

What is the cycle life of UltraLOC products?

180,000 cycles minimum with no degradation.

What is the end fitting of an UltraLOC?

The end fitting is the mounting interface between the seat back and UltraLOC. The end fitting is generally determined by the seat manufacturer and is available in several configurations.

What is the flammability rating of the UltraLOC products?

UltraLOC products meet or exceed the requirements of FAR 25.853 (b-3).

What is the fluid in the UltraLOC?

A hydrocarbon based hydraulic fluid.

What is the normal operating load of an UltraLOC?

The normal operating load of an UltraLOC is the typical load that the UltraLOC will be subjected to when installed in a seat application. This load is typically 200 lbs.

What is the temperature range of the UltraLOC?

Operational: 0 to 120 degrees F

What is the ultimate compressive load of the UltraLOC?

Most UltraLOCs are designed for 3200 lbs.

What is the UltraLOC actuator pin?

The actuator pin is the small pin that protrudes out of the top of the UltraLOC shaft approximately .050 inches. This pin provides the means to mechanically actuate the UltraLOC so that it can be extended or compressed.

What tools are required to adjust the UltraLOC stroke limiting stop?

None, the UltraLOC can be adjusted without the use of tools.
