Weight is a critical consideration in aircraft measurement devices. Hydra-Electric’s newest white paper offers an analysis as to why pursuing weight reduction goals in sensors must be clearly modeled and evaluated with respect to impact on performance criteria.
Here’s the Abstract: The consideration of weight is among the key requirements typically defined for aircraft measurement devices such as pressure sensors, temperature sensors or combination devices. Robust modeling is important to understand and evaluate the trade-offs between weight limitation and performance criteria. Equally important is out-of-the-box thinking to identify design alternatives that allow for weight reduction goals to be achieved while meeting performance requirements of sensing elements.
