Light Weight Air Data Sensors

Product Announcement from HARCO, LLC.

Light Weight Air Data Sensors-Image

HARCO offers pitot, pitot static and pitot/angle-of-attack probes to help you design the air data system meeting your configuration and performance needs. We've applied out patented SIMx™ material to the pitot de-icing heaters, which has the benefit of extending the operational lifetime of this assembly. In addition, special hydrophobic coatings are applied to the surface to enhance its performance in icing conditions. The use of light weight materials is made possible by proprietary forming techniques for the joining of dissimilar metallic product components. Probes may be configured as stand alone with pneumatic outputs to the Air Data Computer, or they may integrate the computing function and eliminate the pneumatic connection.

Harco Labs is a patent holder for a number of specialized avionics solutions and products
