EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES
The drive system changes the angle of drive and converts the output rpm of the
engines into usable power to drive the main rotor system, tail rotor system and the gear driven accessories.
The drive system uses power from the auxiliary power unit (APU) to drive aircraft
accessories when the engines are not operating and can be operated with either engine.
Operating conditions of the transmission and engine nose gearboxes (NGBs) are monitored
by the fault detection and location system (FD/LS) via the multiplex subsystem.
LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
The drive system (fig. 61) consists of the engine NGB assemblies 1 and 2, the main
transmission assembly, the intermediate gearbox (IGB) assembly, the tail rotor gearbox (TGB) assembly, and the
drive shaft assembly (7 drive shafts).
