The X/Y Weapon and Universal Receiver Mount Type 681-800 is designed to hold the Weapon Mount type 681-600 or Universal Receiver type 681-700
The mount is fitted with lockable wheels for easy deployment, and locking plates for additional security.
The trigger is operated by an electrical (solenoid) firing unit positioned on the central block. This electrical unit interfaces to the MS Instruments’ Safety Firing Box Type 157, which also links in to the range security system for improved range safety (see separate information leaflet). In addition the mount can be fired manually.
The entire mount can be moved side-to-side by up to 400mm and up and down by up to 720mm, and securely locked in place. This is particularly useful for ballistic materials testing, where it is not always possible to move the sample to the exact position required. It enables the user to fire orthogonally on test samples, which reduces the chance of an angular offset affecting the results and velocities obtained during testing.
