FLYING CAN BE EASY AT TIMES, BUT WITH THE WRONG MACHINE OR THE WRONG PERSON AT THE CONTROLS, IT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING IN THE WORLD.
The aviation industry is booming owing to a rise in the number of people traveling by aircraft. Flying is being considered among the safest, fastest, as well as the most convenient modes of transport worldwide. The airlines spend a vast amount of money on the maintenance of its aircraft to ensure that a dysfunctional component does not hamper the safety of an aircraft. The maintenance is one of the major contributors to aircraft operating costs, which makes the maintenance, repair, and overhaul costs of an aircraft a persistent issue for the airlines. As a result, airlines are constantly trying to minimize the operating cost and optimize their operational availability. Here are a few trends in the aircraft sensors industry that are enabling the airlines to improve:
The relatively-low-complexity hybrid circuits are gaining momentum, as they combine actuators, aircraft sensors, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), and other things in the Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chips. The ongoing developments in these devices are enabling the incorporation of ultra-thin, flexible, and low-cost microcircuits in mass market packaging.
Dual Mode Sensing
The Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) imager is the underlying technology responsible for the development of a sensor’s ability to provide multiple pieces of information and functions. The sensors can handle multiple inspection and monitoring tasks which makes the complex processes easier and cost effective.
IO link is a commercial communications networking standard usually used for linking digital sensors and actuators. It includes an IO-Link master and one or more IO-Link devices and controls the communication with the connected IO-Link devices. This technology enables users to access sensor data in real-time, which can even be logged for long term analysis. It is playing a vital role in allowing quality control processes to be monitored in real-time and optimized over time based on stored data. The real-time remote monitoring is fostering the growth of auto-device replacement and predictive maintenance, which are saving time and significantly reducing the costs for maintenance.
The predictive maintenance system alerts the operator in advance regarding its maintenance issues or requirements so that it can be fixed before it fails. These sensors also enable operators to address the need for maintenance or replacement of sensors in their scheduled maintenance by allowing them to track sensor runtime and estimate the time for replacement of the device accordingly.
Easy Auto-Device Replacement
When a device requires replacement, the IO link communication technology allows automated parameter reassignment, which imports existing sensor parameter values into a replacement sensor to ensure that the new device is up and running as quickly as possible. Correctly predicting the right moment to repair or replace a part is essential as if done too far in advance, the benefits of longer usage are lost, but if done too late, unforeseen circumstances can result in unavailable assets and lost revenue.
The seamless integration of innovation and digital transformation is capable of overcoming some of the industry’s greatest challenges by providing improvements in operational processes and aviation lifespans.
