Wheel Tachometers

(Other common terms : Wheel Speed Transducers, Wheel Speed Sensors)

Used in Aircraft Anti-Skid Control Systems


A critical component of aircraft braking systems, wheel tachometers are required to convert rotational wheel speed information into periodic voltage signals. Anti-skid control systems monitor the variation in wheel tachometer signal frequency to detect incipient skidding.
Hypernetics designs and manufactures, to customer specifications, wheel tachometers to meet the challenges of high cycle life and adverse environmental requirements in both commercial and military aircraft.
