Burbank, CA — Hydra-Electric Company, a trusted provider of breakthrough sensing technology for the aerospace industry, was spotlighted in Aviation Business Daily, a publication showcasing news from the 2015 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Las Vegas, with the company’s latest white paper, “Aircraft Component Weight Control: Sensors and Switches.”
“The consideration of weight is among the key requirements typically defined for aircraft measurement devices such as pressure and temperature sensors. There are always going to be tradeoffs between weight limitation and its impact on performance, which is why it is important to incorporate modeling techniques to highlight these tradeoffs. The white paper also provides examples of how creative approaches to component design can enable weight requirements to be met without sacrificing performance.”
