Temperature Elements for Flight-Critical Equipment

FCI Aerospace’s (San Marcos, CA) AS-TE Temperature Element Series sensors utilize precision resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) to provide superior accuracy, repeatability and long-life. The AS-TE sensors are typically designed with Platinum RTD or MIL-T-7990 Nickel RTD sensors. The Platinum RTDs are available in several Ro (ice point resistance) values and in either two-, three- or four-wire configurations to ensure optimal performance and system compatibility.

Lange Couplers

The construction and port orientation of the Lange Coupler from SemiGen (Londonderry, NH) makes it useful as both a power combiner and splitter for RF and microwave applications. It is a specific type of directional coupler, which allows passive coupling of a defined amount of electromagnetic power. The sweet spot for Lange Couplers has traditionally been UHF to Q-band; the limit becomes frequency. Substrate height and strip width are inversely related to frequency, increasing loss due to the reduced amount of metal available to act as a conductor.

Round TFT LCD Displays

Data Image (Winter Park, FL) has announced new round TFT LCD color displays in two sizes: 3" and 4.2" in diameter. They can be used as digital avionics, power meters, speedometers, rpm gauges, temperature indicators, strain gauges, volt/current meters or a simple clock. The display can show a single gauge or display multiple parameters. The formats for the displays are 432 × 432 for the 3" and 720 × 720 for the 4.2". Both have a brightness of 1000 nits typical and wide viewing angles thanks to the IPS glass technology used on both versions. Both have wide temperature rating. They are available with or without capacitive touch panels for user interface.

Pin Fin Heat Sinks

Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) (Norwood, MA) has a family of Pin Fin heat sinks designed as cost-effective solutions for systems with adequate airflow. The high aspect ratio design enables ATS Pin Fin heat sinks to provide low thermal resistance from base to fins in systems where the airflow measures 200-plus LFM (linear feet per minute). The cross-cut design also allows the Pin Fin heat sinks to be effective in systems where airflow is ambiguous.

Signal Conditioning Modules

Precision Filters Inc. (Ithaca, NY) has introduced a new family of signal conditioning modules for measurement systems built on National Instruments™ rugged, compact, low power cRIO™ platform. The four analog input/output modules condition charge, bridge, dynamic strain, IEPE or voltage-based sensors. With the supplied LabView™ driver VI, you can integrate PFI™ signal conditioning module technology with proven NI™ voltage input A/D modules to build a complete high performance sensor measurement system for charge, voltage, bridge and dynamic strain.

For applications where a rugged, low-power, compact standalone signal conditioning system is required as a front-end for a data acquisition system, the new signal conditioning modules can be housed in low-cost 4-slot or 8-slot chassis and controlled by PFI’s Graphical User Interface software with no code development needed. All modules feature fully programmable gain and excitation and are equipped with Precision Filters’ Test Input for inserting calibration signals at the module input allowing full end-to-end verification.
