The Mechanical Automatic Parachute Ripcord Release Model 2101 is a precise device designed specifically for use on escape systems and the parachutist making premeditated jumps. The Function of the unit is to automatically withdraw the parachute ripcord pins. The unit becomes active after the arming cable is pulled. The pre-scheduled altitude setting establishes an altitude above which the release will not operate. The time delay setting delays the actual deployment of a parachute after the arming pin is pulled at or below the selected altitude.
The Model 2101, Automatic Parachute Ripcord Release supersedes all known applications of mechanical devices. Applicable for ejection seat, emergency bail-out, and premeditated free-fall applications. Adjustable from 2,000 to 25,000 ft. above sea level with zero to eight seconds of actuation delay and with increased force and stroke. The basic working mechanics accept different arming and power cable assemblies providing a simple, cost-effective, reliable device for various operational requirements.
