Abstract : These tests were designed to investigate the accuracy, repeatability, and reliability of each inertia switch to indicate when their pre-set g level has been exceeded. The tests were conducted during April 1963. Based on the test results and the general performance of the thirty-two switches, it is expected that the switches will operate accurately and reliably, provided that (1) the switches are properly calibrated and (2) adequate measures are taken to shield the switches from external magnetic influences under service conditions.
