Upgrade Options

Improve performance and control of your HYGETMCrash Simulation System HYGE upgrade options make it easy to make your system better than ever.

  • Increase efficiency with automation control software . This system will enhance ease of system operation, provide greater versatility, and improve safety.

  • HYGE Metering Pin Software A refined software program to enable the engineer to design a metering pin to produce a desired pulse or modify an existing pin to produce a new pulse.

  • HYGE Modular Pin As the result of many years of use in the test simulation market Hyge Inc. now offers a solution to simplify and shorten time required to develop pulses to desired specifications.

  • Safety Testing It is recommended the all system be re-certified every 5 years or 2,000 firings.

As well as the above, the following upgrades are available exclusively for existing 12-Horizontal users

  • Compressed Air Module Upgrade Compressed Air Module may be installed as a replacement for an older existing system.

  • Hydraulic System Upgrade The Hydraulic Reservoir and Transfer System provides the means of varying the volume of the cylinders prior to firing.

  • Lock Yoke Conversion Systems manufactured prior to 1972 used a single pneumatic lock pin with clevis on front of Set cylinder that secured the trust column by locking the sled to front of cylinder.

  • Carriage Brake System Earlier HYGE carriages did not include an emergency brake system to prevent over travel as is standard today.

  • Velocity Measuring Accessory This is a photo eye assembly with display to measure carriage velocity.

  • Honey Comb End Barrier A honeycomb over travel barrier may be installed at the end of the rail system to protect the carriage in the event of carriage overrun.

  • Lightweight Sled for Greater Versatility This option reduces sled weight by 600 pounds, extending the HYGETM to cover a wider range of tests by increasing both acceleration and payload capabilities.

  • Carriage Movement System This replaces the standard cable hoist system to allow for easy movement of the carriage and prevent firing the system while the carriage is still attached.
