In the aerospace industry, encoder applications combine demands for high-precision feedback with the ability to operate in extreme environmental conditions. Encoders are installed on airborne systems, ground support vehicles, testing fixtures, maintenance equipment, flight simulators, automated manufacturing machinery, and more. Encoders used in aerospace applications generally require housings and environmental ratings consistent with the presence of shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures.
The aerospace industry typically uses encoders to provide feedback for the following functions:
The Oakland Aviation Museum's WWII flight simulator relies on motion feedback from one of our smallest encoders.
Encoders on moving parts, like industrial lifts, can be subject to damage during routine use. Here's how we addressed it.
