In many industries, temperature must be closely monitored to ensure smooth, safe operations. When measuring this or any other factor, accuracy is of utmost importance, so choosing the right temperature sensor demands proper consideration. Based on the measurements you record the most, varying temperature sensors will work best in different settings. Most likely, you will require a thermistor, a thermocouple, or a resistance temperature detector (RTD), so this blog will walk you through the best applications for each.

Printed circuit boards have radically changed how we design and manufacture electronics since their invention, serving as a medium that mechanically supports and electrically connects electronic components. With printed circuit boards, we have been able to downsize devices while simultaneously bolstering their power, making printed circuit boards a staple of electronics. To manufacture printed circuit boards, a process known as circuit card assembly (CCA) is carried out. With this manufacturing technique, raw materials can be transformed into reliable boards for aerospace, military, and consumer markets alike. In this blog, we will discuss circuit card assembly in more detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of how it is carried out.

Motor shaft voltages can cause damage to the components around them. For instance, if a shaft’s voltage surpasses the insulation capabilities of nearby cables or parts, this can result in both acute and long-term damage to the motor bearings. High voltages may even lead to arcing between the shaft and the bearing which can increase the temperature of the bearing. Metal bearings, in particular, can vaporize and become permanently damaged or pitted from this process.

While in-flight entertainment (IFE) is now a staple of commercial aviation that is simply expected to be present by many passengers, aircraft did not always have such amenities. The first form of in-flight entertainment came about in the early 1960s when Trans World Airlines offered customers a movie viewing experience in-flight with the use of a 16mm film system with black and white TV monitors. From there, in-flight entertainment quickly evolved, becoming what we know today with personal display screen fixtures, audio jack availability for headphones, on-board Wi-Fi, and so much more. In this blog, we will discuss current in-flight entertainment solutions and future trends, allowing you to better see how IFE will continue to evolve.

Inclinometers are known by many names, so you might be familiar with these instruments as clinometers, gradiometers, tilt indicators, or slope gauges. As indicated by the name, tilt indicators are used to measure angles of slope/tilt and elevation/depression of an object with respect to gravity. Across various industries, inclinometers are beneficial in many applications, including aviation purposes. For your greater understanding, this blog will explore the functions of and different uses for inclinometers.
