FCI Aerospace’s AS-TE sensors are compact, light-weight components that meet the requirements of commercial and military aircraft including fixed wing or rotary aircraft, as well as spacecraft, vehicles, and shipboard/marine vessels. The sensors rely on precision resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) for accuracy, repeatability and long-life. They are typically designed with platinum RTD or MIL-T-7990 nickel RTD sensors. The Platinum RTDs are available in several Ro (ice point resistance) values and in either two-, three- or four-wire configurations to ensure optimal performance and system compatibility.
AS-TE Series sensors are qualified to comply with high vibration, severe shock, and high acceleration environments and specifications. They have been tested to perform after exposure to more than 100,000 temperature cycles from -40°F to +300°F (-40°C to +150°C). The standard temperature measuring ranges are -80°F to 450°F (-62°C to 232°C) and high temperature elements are available up to 800°F (427°C).
The temperature element can be tailored to meet a variety of insertion lengths and applications and are typically packaged in AISI 300 series stainless steel bodies with either single or dual elements, and can be designed to support a variety of installation techniques. Sensors made from Titanium or other thermally conductive materials are also available. For more details, visit FCI Aerospace, call 760-744-6950, and/or email [email protected].
