A capacitor is a type of component that is capable of storing electrical energy within an electric field, and ceramic capacitors are a widely used variation. With a ceramic material as the dielectric of the device, such capacitors are regularly found within many modern electronics to provide high frequency responses and low parasitic effects. To have a better understanding of ceramic capacitors and their uses, we will discuss them in more detail.
When a pilot is learning how to fly or is honing their skills, one of the most tricky procedures to master is landing during crosswind conditions. A crosswind is considered to be any gust of wind that is moving perpendicular to the direction of travel, and such conditions can have a heavy effect on the aerodynamics of an aircraft. While crosswinds may affect numerous vehicles that are on the ground, sea, or air, aircraft in particular are increasingly at risk as a strong enough gust can damage the undercarriage or landing gear of the aircraft during the touchdown process. In order to safely land on a runway in such atmospheric conditions, there are a number of common practices that pilots may use.
Rectangular connectors offer many advantages, such as design flexibility and ease of use, over other connector shapes. Types of rectangular connectors include D-subs, power and hybrid connectors, ARINC, and others. Their shape is ideal for efficient use of panel space in applied systems and their various options for material composition allow them to fulfill many different weight requirements. Rectangular connectors are used in rack and panel, cable-to-cable, and panel mounting applications. Additionally, their robust design allows them to be used in industries including aerospace, defense, marine, industrial, and more. They have also been approved for use in avionics systems by BACC, EN, and MIL-DTL standards. In this blog, we will discuss the types of rectangular connectors and their uses.
An important aspect of building your own drone is powering your flight controller. Failure to do this properly could result in smoke coming out of your drone, or even worse, a mid-flight failure that damages more than just your flight controller. There are four main methods you can use to power your flight controller: directly from a battery, using an ESC (electronic speed controller), a voltage regulator, or a power module. In this blog, we will discuss each method.
While the wings and engine of an aircraft are paramount for its ability to fly, there are also many other aircraft parts and structures that assist in increasing aerodynamic efficiency and flight characteristics. One force that acts against the velocity of an aircraft is drag, and it is a type of friction that acts as an opposing force to an object moving through a fluid. For aircraft, drag can affect the aerodynamics of surfaces, often affecting lift and airspeed. With an aircraft structure known as a fairing, however, a smoother outline can be achieved in order to reduce form and interference drag.
When designing aircraft seals and insulators serve as crucial components that may heavily affect the performance and safety of flight operations. Although seals and insulating materials may serve similar areas of an aircraft and share certain characteristics and features, both types of aircraft parts serve their own unique and important roles for assemblies. With seals and insulators both serving to increase safety and performance with their implementation within aircraft, having a basic understanding of each can be very useful when procuring or maintaining parts.
As the generation of lift is paramount to the ability of an aircraft to fly, it can seem counteractive to mitigate it. Despite this, destroying lift can be very useful in a variety of situations to benefit the pilot and their control over the aircraft. To reduce lift in a controlled way, pilots rely on wing spoiler devices. Coming in the form of plates placed on the top surface of wings, such devices can be extended into the airflow to create a stall.
While much investment has been put into advancing the speed capabilities of aircraft over the years with higher engine thrust and refined structures, improving the technology that provides speed reduction has been just as important to aviation engineers. Whether slowing the aircraft down for a descent or coming to a full stop once on the ground, a number of devices and systems must work together in order to reduce the speed of an aircraft during operations as needed. With the use of spoilers and brakes, pilots can harness the forces of drag and aerodynamics to efficiently and safely reduce the speed of their aircraft during flight and ground procedures.
A proximity sensor is a type of sensor that replaces contact detection methods such as limit switches. Proximity sensors aim to detect an object without actually contacting it. It is able to detect the movement information and presence information of the object via electrical signals. It uses the displacement sensor’s sensitivity to an approaching object to recognize the proximity of the object and subsequently output the corresponding switch signal. Because of this, proximity sensors are commonly referred to as proximity switches. This blog will discuss proximity sensors in detail, as well as their application in aircraft landing systems.
