UltraLOC™ Airline Seat Recline Products
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.
Yes, UltraLOC products are typically warranted for a minimum of 5 years.
Yes, most UltraLOCs are drop in replacements for other seat recline products.
Typically the UltraLOC products are the lightest products available.
MSDS information for the hydraulic fluid used in the UltraLOC is available from the manufacturer.
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.
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.
The UltraLOC control cable is the device used to remotely actuate the UltraLOC.
Backlash is a measure of the UltraLOC's rigidity when a light load is applied to compress the UltraLOC.
Drift is a measure of the UltraLOC's ability to prevent extension of the UltraLOC from a compressed position.
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.
The pin actuation force is the force required to manually open the valve, which allows the UltraLOC to be compressed or extended.
Proof loading is a measure of the UltraLOC rigidity when a heavy load is applied to compress the 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.
Unit output is the spring force of the UltraLOC external spring.
180,000 cycles minimum with no degradation.
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.
UltraLOC products meet or exceed the requirements of FAR 25.853 (b-3).
A hydrocarbon based hydraulic fluid.
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.
Operational: 0 to 120 degrees F
Most UltraLOCs are designed for 3200 lbs.
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.
None, the UltraLOC can be adjusted without the use of tools.
