For a modern aircraft to optimally carry out all the processes needed for navigation, communication, takeoffs, etc., they require a form of electrical power. While generators have served many aircraft well for power generation over the years, the alternator has quickly become a standard facet of modern design. While both systems can provide reliable and consistent powering, there are various aspects of the alternator that make it more desirable for aerospace applications as compared to more conventional generators.
While aircraft engine failures are exceedingly rare and are something that no pilot ever wants to have happen while they are flying, such occurrences are always a possibility. To ensure the safety of all on board and for surrounding areas where an engine failure occurs, it is critical that pilots know how to deal with such situations. In this blog, we will discuss the main steps of handling engine failures, beginning with immediate actions following when a failure is noticed to enacting restart procedures and landings.
During various aircraft ground operations such as taxiing, cargo loading, refueling, and maintenance, a great number of aircraft ground support equipment is needed. While aircraft are advanced systems that provide us numerous benefits, their sheer size and delicacy require careful operations to ensure safety, prevent damage, and guarantee speedy processes. From aircraft towing to de-icing, GSE equipment and vehicles are utilized together to make ground operations smooth and efficient.
While aircraft are highly advanced systems, they are still prone to eventual failure if parts are not regularly serviced and replaced. Keeping a full inventory of extra components can make MRO services quick, but maintaining such an inventory can be very costly and time consuming. This is due to the fact that aircraft parts are very expensive, often warranting quick turn-around times for the sake of inventory costs and regulation. Currently, a number of trends are developing for inventory management such as automation, software solutions, and radio frequency identification.
As the modularization of industrial plants and systems continues to evolve, the industrial market is using smaller and smaller machines. As such, compact, modular, and robust connections are needed for connecting small loads. To respond to this need, Harting Technologies has developed a new type of connector: the Han 1A. This rectangular connector has a wide range of benefits and is suitable for the transmission of data, signals, and power, and provides an ideal solution within control systems, smaller drives, and switch cabinet installations.
