Condition monitoring and sensors for civil aircraft

For the most advanced overview of aircraft health

As part of your condition-based maintenance, you can enhance safety, increase aircraft efficiency and minimise downtime with Meggitt sensing and monitoring solutions that tangibly improve aircraft reliability.

We can offer you sensing excellence, processing know-how, skilled manufacturing and proven integration experience on sensing and data acquisition. Our systems enable you to measure virtually every parameter: acceleration, speed, pressure, force, temperature, distance, position, vibration and level, performing in almost unimaginable extremes of heat and vibration.

Flight crew and maintenance staff can gain the most advanced picture on aircraft health ever achieved with our products. They are built on over 60 years’ experience in developing sensors and electronics for airborne vibration monitoring and condition-monitoring systems for civil aircraft. Your technical personnel can use our systems to detect serious problems at an early stage – helping them to perform maintenance and reduce unplanned downtime.

Our engine vibration monitoring units (EVM) acquire engine vibration data for efficient post-flight calculation and implementation of cold fan trim balancing with minimal disruption and at reduced costs. Using our engine health/condition monitoring units (EMU) with our vibration and engine monitoring can provide you with more sensor inputs, such as pressure, temperature, strain gauge, fuel meter, oil debris and oil level.

For decades, aircraft and engine manufacturers have used Meggitt sensing and monitoring solutions to detect faults, prevent damage and avoid costly repairs. Talk to us about how we can assist you too.

Typical monitoring solutions for civil aircraft applications:

  • Gas turbine engine monitoring, including engine cold fan trim balancing (CFTB)
  • Airframe structure vibration analysis
  • Gearbox and bearing analysis
  • Auxiliary power unit monitoring
  • Combustion optimisation in gas turbines
  • Monitoring of combustion chamber rumble
  • Monitoring of jet pipe screech/buzz
  • Engine usage, health monitoring and diagnostics functions and the recording of engine parameters in the case of events
  • Oil debris monitoring

Our sensing and monitoring solutions for civil aircraft include:

Vibration sensors
Dynamic pressure sensors
Speed probes
Temperature sensors
Ground support software (GSS)
Oil debris monitoring
Engine vibration monitoring (EVM)
