Angle of Attack Sensors

AMETEK Aerospace & Defense has over 40 year’s experience supplying Angle of Attack Sensors for military, commercial, and business jet applications.  Proven on multiple platforms, these reliable units provide critical input to the aircraft’s Stall Protection and Wind Shear Warning Systems.



DFDR (Inertial) Accelerometers

Electrical connections can be accomplished with either a receptacle connector or integral cable assembly with a remote termination. Time response requirements are weighed against the structural requirements for the design. Additionally, AMETEK can offer dual elements for redundancy.

These accelerometers consist of up to three separate, rugged seismic sensors responding to forces along each axis. Each sensor consists of a bending beam, with strain-gages forming a full Wheatstone Bridge, and a mass. An advanced solid-state electronic signal conditioning compliments the mechanical configuration.



LVDT Position Transducers

Reliable and accurate position sensors for aircraft engine, flight control surface, and landing gear position monitoring applications.



Piezoelectric Accelerometers

With over fifty years of experience, AMETEK's piezoelectric accelerometers are available in all three modes of operation: compression, shear and bender, to match the needs of the specific application. Designed for a wide range of temperatures, environments, frequency responses and sensitivities, the accelerometers have high accuracy, ultra-low cross axis sensitivity and are isolated from mounting forces and thermal transients. Available in many different configurations, the accelerometers employ fully-welded construction for enhanced reliability and isolation from demanding environments.



Position Transducers

Reliable and accurate position sensors for aircraft engine, flight control surface, and landing gear position monitoring applications.



Pressure Transducers

AMETEK has provided hundreds of thousands of pressure transducers based on various technologies.  Our latest units utilize patent pending Silicon on Insulator (SOI) technology that provides high accuracy and long term stability over the widest temperature range.  Pressure transducers are suitable for the tough environment found in aircraft engines as well as more benign air frame system applications.  Units are fully qualified to DO 160 and DO 178 software requirements if applicable.
