The Easy Way to Keep Your Balance

The Easy Way to Keep Your Balance

June 17, 2015

Keeping your balance is a lot easier with Honeywell’s Enhanced Vibrex™ 2000 Plus (EV2K+) balancer/analyzer – preprogrammed with helicopter platforms and now interfacing with the hands-free FasTrak optical tracker. The EV2K+ takes the guesswork out of helicopter rotor track and balance by automating the process and saving time, hassle and money for operators and maintenance crews.

The company that brought rotor track and balance into the digital age now brings you the most practical and cost-effective vibration analysis and balancing tool on the market. The EV2K+ quickly and accurately acquires and analyzes airframe and engine vibration data and calculates balance solutions to improve safety and aircrew comfort and reduce wear and tear on moving parts.

The EV2K+ is compact, portable and easy to use. It lets you balance blades using an integrated display instead of paper charts, improving both speed and accuracy. Easy to understand menus let you handle as many as four different balancing jobs at a time. And the system is fully compatible with Strobex or hands-free FasTrak equipment.

The unit contains data covering about 30 helicopter platforms, putting the information you need right at your fingertips and eliminating the need to acquire multiple balancer/analyzers or continually load new settings. All you have to do is select the right helicopter model and you’re ready to roll. Our tried and true algorithms, embedded in the unit, have been proven by decades of experience on thousands of fielded aircraft.

The EV2K+ will automatically correct for the propeller/rotor response to weight changes and save the information for future balancing operations. All measurements, sensitivities, solutions and annotations are stored in memory and can be reviewed on the instrument, printed on the optional portable thermal printer or downloaded to a personal computer.

No one has more experience than Honeywell when it comes to helicopter rotor track and balance. Whether you’re responsible for one helicopter or a whole fleet, the EV2K+ is a cost-effective answer to your rotor track and balance needs, giving you the opportunity to trim time, fuel, starts, cycles and flights from the balancing process you currently use.
