THIRD PARTY NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING
Smeal 93’ w/LTC MMP Demo #S4486
Welds shall be tested using two (2) non-destructive methods by a third party inspection firm. Steel
and aluminum ladders, at a minimum, shall have all welds tested using two (2) separate NDT
methods.
Aerial structures shall have 100 % of all structural welds tested using both magnetic particle
method and visual testing method. Aerials that are fabricated of aluminum have 100% of all
structural welds tested using dye penetrant method and visual method. Manufacturers who rely
only on visual inspection (performed in-house or by any third party) as a primary method of
testing shall not be considered and their bid shall be rejected.
STRUCTURAL SAFETY FACTOR
All bids shall include copies of the certification of testing of the aerial device. The purchaser
desires a device that has been tested by a third party for compliance with the 2 to 1 safety factor
specified by NFPA 1901. Devices that have not been certified by an engineer that is independent
of the manufacturer shall not be acceptable.
NFPA AERIAL STABILITY FACTOR AND TESTING
A one and one half to one (1.5:1) stability factor shall be provided. These capabilities shall be
established in an unsupported configuration. Since the device is rated while flowing water,
stability testing shall account for the distributed weight of water in a full waterway and water
reactionary force as required by NFPA 1901.
Following are specific descriptions of what tests are to be performed, and conditions they shall be
performed under. The aerial manufacturer shall strictly adhere to these tests and conditions as
set forth in these specifications and NFPA 1901.

For both of the following tests, the only obstructions to a full 360 degree rotation with the
aerial at 0 degrees elevation and full extension shall be presented by the apparatus itself
(if any), and NOT external obstructions at the manufacturer's test location(s). This mean
that the aerial device manufacturer shall ensure that the testing grounds present no
obstruction (trees, buildings, etc..) to the full 360 degree rotation at 0 degrees elevation
and full extension, which may cause the need to raise the aerial to clear the obstruction.

Additionally, the apparatus shall be tested for stability only after the entire apparatus is
complete. This requirement is specified in NFPA 1901 as the apparatus being in "service
ready condition". There shall be No Exception to this requirement due to the fact that it
would be unlikely that actual weight distribution could be accurately simulated for the
stability testing. "Counter weighting" shall not be allowed under any circumstance in place
of the actual body and equipment.
TEST 1
After the above conditions have been satisfied, the aerial shall be subjected to the following test
in the presence of the third party testing company that is in compliance with these specifications.
Specifically, the aerial device shall be placed on level ground with the stabilizers deployed per
manufacturer recommendations. The aerial device then shall have 1.5 times the rated capacity
placed at the tip of the aerial, with the device at full extension and at 0 degrees elevation; which is
the most stringent configuration. The device shall be rotated 360 degrees, raising and lowering
the aerial as needed to clear the cab of the apparatus. The aerial shall prove to be stable during
the entire test and no component of the aerial shall permanently deform.
TEST 2
Smeal 93’ w/LTC MMP Demo #S4486
After the above conditions have been satisfied, the aerial shall be subjected to the following test
in the presence of the third party testing company that is in compliance with these specifications.
Specifically, the aerial device shall be placed on a 5 degree downward slope with the stabilizers
deployed per manufacturer recommendations. The aerial device then shall have 1.33 times the
rated capacity placed at the tip of the aerial, with the device at full extension and at 0 degrees
elevation; which is the most stringent configuration. The device shall be rotated 360 degrees,
raising and lowering the aerial as needed to clear the cab of the apparatus. The aerial shall prove

vehicle.
Outputs:
The outputs shall perform all the following items without added modules to perform any of the
tasks:
1. Load Shedding: The System shall have the capability to Load Shed with 8 levels any
output. This means you can specify which outputs (barring NFPA restrictions) you would
like Load Shed. Level 1 12.9v, Level 2 12.5V, Level 3 - 12.1V, Level 4 - 11.7V, Level 5
11.3V, Level 6 10.9V, Level 7 10.5, Level 8 10.1. Unlike conventional load shedding
devices you can assign a level to any or all outputs. No add-on modules shall be
acceptable; the module with the outputs must perform this function.
2. Load Sequencing: The System shall be able to sequence from 0 8 levels any output. With
0 being no delay and 1 being a 1 second delay, 2 being a 2 second delay and so on.
Sequencing reduces the amount of voltage spikes and drops on your vehicle, and can
help limit damage to your charging system. No add-on modules shall be acceptable; the
module with the outputs must perform this function.
3. Output Device: The System shall have solid-state output devices. Each solid-state output
shall be a MOS-FET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor - Field Effect Transistors); MOS-FETs
are solid-state devices with no moving parts to wear out. A typical relay when loaded to
spec has a life of 100,000 cycles. The life of a FET is more than 100 times that of a relay.
No add-on modules shall be acceptable; the module with the outputs must perform this
function.
4. Flashing Outputs: The System shall be able to flash any output in either A or B phase,
and logic is used to shut down needed outputs in park, or any one of several combined
interlocks. The flash rate can be selected at either 80, or 160 FPM. This means any light
can be specified with a multiplex truck with no need to add flashers. Flashing outputs can
also be used to warn of problems. No add-on modules shall be acceptable; the module
with the outputs must perform this function.
5. PWM: The modules shall have the ability to PWM at some outputs so that a Headlight
PWM module is not needed. No add-on modules shall be acceptable; the module with
the outputs must perform this function.
6. Diagnostics: An output shall be able to detect either a short or open circuit.
Inputs:
1. The inputs shall have the ability to switch by a ground or battery signal.
2. The inputs shall be filtered for noise suppression via hardware and software so that RF or
dirty power will not trick an input into changing its status.
System Network:
Smeal 93’ w/LTC MMP Demo #S4486
The Multiplex system shall contain a Peer-to-Peer network. A Master Slave Type network is not
suitable for the Fire/Rescue industry. A Peer-to-Peer network means that all the modules are
equal on the network; a Master is not needed to tell other nodes when to talk.
