Engine break-in tests
Sky Power handles break-in tests for your UAV engines. The engines are broken in on the in-house engine test stands, according to your specifications. So you obtain a “ready-to-fly” engine that can be used immediately in your UAS, saving preparation time and allowing you to begin your deployment immediately. You can generate instant sales with an engine broken in by Sky Power, especially in industrial and commercial applications.
Customer and endurance test (engine tests)
Sky Power conducts engine tests according to your specifications; individual usage parameters can be simulated in the process and each engine test is documented. Our precise instruments allow us to accurately measure fuel consumption, engine parameters, and exhaust-gas temperatures. The engine tests can also include endurance tests, during which your engines are subjected to between 50 and 200 hours of uninterrupted loading on the in-house engine test stands. Climate tests are also possible. After each test, the engines are disassembled and examined, and full test results are made available to the client.
We can conduct the following tests :
- General performance measurement of combustion engines
- Thrust and power measurement
- Exhaust analysis
- Engine indexing
- Endurance testing
- Blower-, water-, and oil-pump analysis
- Cylinder-head measurement
- Load-change calculation
- EMC measurements
- Climate and temperature tests.
Overhaul and maintenance
The time between overhauling (TBO) of Sky Power engines can vary depending upon operating environment and maintenance intensity. After achieving maximum TBO, Sky Power can then overhaul the engine. The engine has to be sent to Germany for this.
For each engine, the operating manual describes in detail the individual maintenance steps and their intervals, which can be completed by the operator. We can provide a spare-parts packet for each engine, to allow to you conduct simple maintenance tasks yourself at any time.
Larger maintenance tasks can be completed by Sky Power at our facility in Germany. Please contact our Service Department.
Generally, only Sky Power’s Service Team can repair an engine following a crash. Please contact us to determine whether a repair is even possible, before you send in the engine. Detailed engine tests are carried out as part of the repair work, in order to document the engine’s operational readiness.
