Wireless Industrial Remote Control Aircraft Refueling
Aircraft refueling is also known as air refueling or air-to-air refueling and it is a process of transforming fuel from one aircraft or the tanker to another/ the receiver during the flight. It is an important procedure that helps the aircraft to remain stay in the air longer as well as to extend its range or loiter time on station. Aircraft refueling can also be considered as a means to reduce fuel consumption on long distance flights greater than 3000 nautical miles.
However, as the process is very difficult or rather complex, it is really hard to maintain this total process manually. So, automated aircraft refueling system or using wireless remote controllers to maintain this whole process is always welcome. Nowadays, by using wireless industrial remote control technology, some unique kinds of automated aircraft refueling systems are being manufactured by the manufacturers.
These wireless remote controllers are used widely to refuel aircrafts. These automatic devices are developed specifically for industrial applications that require positive operator-to-machine contact. A wireless trigger-switch is used in these systems in order to send RF command signals to the pump. This Aircraft Refueling Control wireless industrial remote control operating systems unencumbered by cables and wires normally used in 'deadman' fueling operations.
One of the chief aspects of these automatic devices is that it allows interference free operation. The system incorporates a secure frequency hopping, spread-spectrum radio link that is virtually immune to outside electrical or RF interference. The spread-spectrum technology, used in these devices, helps the whole system to shutdown during any single loss of signals from the transmitter of the wireless remote controllers.
The transmitter, used in these wireless industrial remote control aircraft refueling systems, is highly powerful. Normally the transmitter power is 100mW with a frequency rate of 902-928MHz FHSS and 433.92MHz, 869.7MHz & 2.4GHz radios are also available. However, the transmitter power varies from system to system. The transmitters are rechargeable and they deliver 30hrs of continuous use between charges. Generally 12/24VDC charger is supplied by the manufacturer.
Another important feature of this automated refueling device is that it is available with 'Safety Timer' software in order to limit switch closure duration prior to automatic shut-off. This feature also requires periodic trigger pulse by operator to maintain receiver 'on' condition. Many types of Aircraft Automated Refueling Systems are available. The customers can get up to eleven other command functions according to their requirements. It is also available with Modular quick-connect component that allows the system for easy installation and field service. You can also get it with Pre-wired solenoids for your Pneumatic, Hydraulic, or Hose Reel control interface.
The wireless remote controllers refueling systems are included with internal 'on card' PCB mounts with normal range up to 500 feet, although, higher power is also available. It is constructed with rugged weatherproof polymer enclosure, ensuring the safety of the systems. Normal rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is used to control the system.
