Reciprocating engines have long been the beating heart of aviation operations, providing the power necessary for aircraft to soar through the skies with grace and precision. These remarkable machines, which are considered a type of piston-powered engine, operate on the fundamental principle of converting a fuel's chemical energy into mechanical work, effectively creating propulsion. In this blog, we will delve into the basics of aircraft reciprocating engines to better understand how they work and what allows them to function optimally.
PCB relays, also known as printed circuit board relays, are an integral part of many electrical systems. In fact, these compact devices play a crucial role in controlling the flow of electrical currents, ensuring the smooth operation of numerous applications. In this article, we will explore the world of PCB relays by shedding light on their functionality, applications, and significance in modern electrical engineering.
Terminal blocks are devices that are common to electrical assemblies and systems, acting as insulated attachments that guard components from the harmful effects of short circuits. Terminal blocks are generally attached to DIN rails, those of which are standardized metal rails that allow for relays, circuit breakers, and other such devices to be assembled and collected within racks, enclosures, and control cabinets alike. To effectively perform their roles, DIN rails are constructed from insulating materials like plastics, and they have been in use for many decades as a result of their reliable capabilities. In this blog, we will specifically discuss the terminal blocks that attach to these rails, allowing you to have a better understanding of when they are used and why.
Similar to other parts of an aircraft, the fuel tanks must be regularly maintained in order for them to work optimally. However, fuel tank maintenance does come along with some potential dangers. While it may not seem like a complicated task, fuel tank maintenance requires time, care, and effort. As such, you must always be aware of all the hazards associated with cleaning the aircraft fuel tanks and take the proper precautions.
When working with electric circuits, one might find that two circuits that must remain isolated also need to pass signals to one another. In such circumstances, one should employ an optoelectronic coupler, or optocoupler. This six pin device is an electronic component that basically acts as an interface between the two separate circuits with different voltage levels. A popular device across a myriad of industries, the optocoupler is advantageous for many applications, so this blog will take a closer look at how an optocoupler works and some advantages of using one in your projects.
RFID, or radio frequency identification, is considered a type of wireless communication that utilizes the electromagnetic or electrostatic coupling of the electromagnetic spectrum for the means of identifying objects and living things. RFID can be conducted with an RFID system that is composed of a scanning antenna, transceiver, and transponder. The scanning antenna and transceiver are often grouped together, and this combination is known as the RFID reader. In this blog, we will discuss RFID systems and readers in more detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of their capabilities and common applications.
A standard procedure as a part of routine aircraft maintenance, compressor washes are essential for their role in prolonging an engine’s life cycle as they are performed to ensure peak part efficiency is always achieved. To guarantee the removal of built-up contaminants along the compressor section of an engine which can lead to impacted performance and equipment failure, personnel should always perform compressor washes with part-specific Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) chemical solutions.
Aircraft communication systems allow pilots, air route traffic control centers, ground personnel, airports, and other entities to maintain a bridge of communication. This is especially critical during flight as aircraft communication systems aid in avoiding unprecedented accidents, turbulent weather, and more. With so many systems set in place, this blog will provide a brief overview of each aircraft communication system, their subsystems, and how they work.
