In aviation, the highest requirements are placed on installed components in terms of safety and reliability. This especially applies to sensors which are used in different places. For example in aircraft assembly, sensors from Micro-Epsilon ensure non-contact rivet hole measurement. Micro-Epsilon develops displacement and position sensors for aircraft measurement tasks landing gear, wing assembly, fuselage and engines, where they enable reliable determination of measurement values.

Load tests on aeroplane wings

In order to optimise the behaviour of wings during a flight, the wings are already subjected to vibration tests during the construction. 120 wireSENSOR draw-wire sensors are connected to the wing and synchronised. ...

Door lock detection

Before an aircraft starts, the doors are locked centrally. In order to determine the status of the locking, inductive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used. These detect the end position directly ...

Brake temperature measurement

Before an aeroplane can start, the temperature in the brakes must be below a certain limit. To determine the temperature, non-contact temperature sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used in the landing gear.

Reliable position recognition of the Wing-Tip-Brake

The so-called Wing Tip Brake sits on the shaft in the outer wing area. It avoids uneven extension of slats and flaps and uncontrolled movements of the buoyancy aids by external influences. Inductive displacement ...
