Hold-Down Release Mechanism Technology

Hold-Down Release Mechanism Technology

High-reliability, non-explosive electromechanical release mechanism technology for dependable stowage and release of deployable space systems

Series 06

Glenair HDRM device technology is optimized for reliability with built-in mechanical and electrical redundancy. The planned release of the deployable system is activated by a pre-determined value of electrical current to a fuse-wire system which causes the wire to break under tension and allow the pre-loaded mechanical bolt to actuate. Glenair is now positioned to incorporate HDRM technology into a broad range of customer-defined housing and mounting configurations.
