When setting up an electrical assembly and attempting to organize wires, terminal blocks are useful devices to implement more optimal and efficient connections. Terminal blocks are simply modular, insulated blocks that secure two or more wires in an assembly, bolstering organization while protecting wires from damage. With several individual terminals arranged in a strip, terminal blocks open up more opportunities to connect wiring to a ground, connect electrical switches and outlets to mains, and more. As terminal blocks can work with multiple types of connector components while deterring corrosion, damage, and other issues, it can be quite useful to have a general understanding of common variations and options.

The first commercial air passenger flight occurred in 1914. It was a mere 23 minute journey from St. Petersburg, Florida to the neighboring city of Tampa. Since this flight, the commercial aviation industry has taken huge leaps in terms of technology and safety, in addition to its financial boom. Today, aviation is one of the safest modes of transportation. Despite this, many people are weary of flying during inclement weather, especially a lightning storm. However, aircraft are designed to be prepared for conditions like this. In this blog, we will discuss how aircraft are prepared for a lightning strike, how they are protected, and how they prevent damage. Read more >>

Pressure transducer, pressure transmitter, and pressure sensor are often used interchangeably. This is not entirely correct. First, let’s look at the differences between pressure transducers and transmitters. In its most basic form, a transducer is a device used to measure pressure, load, force, or other factors, and convert the reading into an electronic signal. A transmitter also converts a reading into an electrical signal, but subsequently amplifies, modifies, and sends the signal to another receiver. Read more >>

Aviation maintenance technicians rely on a wide range of hand tools in the course of their work. What tools are used depends heavily on the aircraft; a large commercial jet will have different maintenance requirements than a small general aviation aircraft, which will be different from that of a cargo helicopter. Across the industry however, there are some pieces of equipment that will be welcome in any workshop. Read more >>

Keeping the engine in any aircraft cool is a critical part of maintaining performance and safety. For piston-powered aircraft, this means using a system of baffles and baffle seals to regulate airflow through the engine compartment. Read more >>

A temperature sensor is a device used to measure temperature through an electrical signal that requires a thermocouple. This electronic device consists of two dissimilar conductors (different types of metals) joined together at one end, which form electrical junctions at varying temperatures. When the junction of the conductors is heated or cooled, it emits a temperature dependent voltage formed by a thermoelectric effect, which can be used to measure temperature. Read more >>

The Aerospace Industry has a new star in the Asian-Pacific— South Korea’s first MRO station, Korea Aviation Engineering and Maintenance Service (KAEMS). As of this month, the station has successfully completed its first “C-Check” on a Boeing 737 jet from Jeju Air and has another in progress on a B737 from Eastar Jet. This MRO station is a notable achievement for the aviation industry in South Korea. Read more >>
