Air Data has developed the skills, tools and know-how to work as a highly valued partner with aircraft OEMs, from the preliminary study to the manufacturing phase of tailor-made avionics systems. Air Data also has a complete laboratory for environmental testing and qualification of its products.
In addition to its specialized avionics for all aircraft types, Air Data’s innovative applications are found in various systems aboard helicopters:
- Fuel Gauging and Management
- Data Communications
- Sensors and Detectors
- Cockpit Display Instruments
- Flight Control Equipment
- Electromagnetic Actuators
- Microwave Landing Systems
Contrary to former analog technologies, the electrical signal is digitally analyzed by software. The characteristics measured are compared to predetermined levels to generate alarm signals for the pilot, if necessary.
The RPM Sensor was designed in compliance with software standard RTCA/DO-178B, level B, and environment standard RTCA/DO-160C. The unit is a standard installation on the Bell-407.
Using the latest technologies in microcontrollers, the RPM Sensor is a light, compact unit whose design ensures excellent protection against electromagnetic interferences and reliable operation in extreme-temperature conditions.
