Hypernetics designs, manufactures, & markets high performance electromagnetic devices, supporting leading-edge & legacy business solutions for the aerospace industry for both commercial and military applications. Hypernetics is devoted to delivering innovative technology through cutting edge design & manufacturing processes. Hypernetics can address the very demanding requirements of other aircraft devices both electromagnetic and non-electromagnetic.

Electromagnetic Indicators

Used in Aircraft Flight Instrumentation

Hypernetics has developed a family of low power, high performance indicators for use in flight and engine instruments. Hypernetics range of electromagnetic indicators includes magnetic wheel indicators & flag failure indicators. They can be used as single units or as stacked assemblies to present either a multiple-digit or alpha-numeric display & are designed for continuous operation to 125°C.

Electromagnetic indicators are ideally suited as aircraft instrument readouts. Reliability is excellent even in direct sunlight. If power fails, readout remains visible. The only moving component is the indicator permanent magnetic rotor which is mounted on ball bearings. Designs ensure reliable performance in severe thermal shock environments.

Wheel Speed Tachometers

Used in Aircraft Anti-Skid Control Systems
(Other common terms : Wheel Speed Transducers, Wheel Speed Sensors)

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.
