TruMotion Acceleration Test Systems

Lansmont TruMotion Acceleration Sled

When transport vehicles accelerate, turn or brake, the resulting low-frequency accelerations can cause unit loads to shift. Due to both safety issues and potential product damage/waste, regulatory bodies are requiring testing that’s closer to reality – assuring safe and stable unit load integrity! Introducing Lansmont TruMotion Acceleration Systems. Our advanced simulation solutions help to deliver regulatory compliance by bringing true-to-life test results directly into your laboratory. Lansmont’s SAVER 3D15 field instruments can characterize those events and their overall impact on unit loads.

  • Simulate long-duration, low-frequency input forces (no impact) associated with vehicle accelerating, turning and braking.
  • Challenge unit load stability and integrity, determining if they will remain unitized and stable for transport.
  • Quantify peak displacement that occurs during test events, as well as permanent displacement that remains after testing.
  • Meets EUMOS 40509 Requirements and FMCSA Cargo Securement Rules.
  • Optional extended lengths for added performance.
  • User defined acceleration vs. time test input profiles.

Laboratory Testing Measurement

Test Partner 4 with DC Response Instrumentation provides the ability to read and resolve long-duration, low frequency acceleration and force measurements. This allows for verification of system performance inputs, as well as measurements of the unit load responses.
