Angle of Attack Sensor for Small and Mid-Sized Aircraft.


Small and mid-size aircraft can now benefit from lower power requirements and smaller size of the 4239-01 angle of attack (AOA) sensors from SpaceAge Control.

Designed specifically to meet the needs of commuter, business, and general aviation aircraft the 4239-01 AOA sensors provide: 100 W maximum power requirement (in-flight, continuous), 1 lb. (454 g) weight maximum, de-icing capability per TSO-C16A AND BSI 2G-135 (Section 8.7.2), electrical angle of -30 to +45 degrees, user-specified electrical angles optionally available and heated vane and sensor case.

The products are a direct off-shoot of the SpaceAge Control's 30+ year heritage in producing angle of attack sensors for flight test aircraft.

"Customers asked us to supply an airflow sensor designed with smaller size, lower weight and - most critically - lower power draw", stated Tom Anderson III, CEO. "To date, the 4239-01 product has exceeded the design requirements to include a brutal de-icing test."

Established in 1968, SpaceAge Control is an ISO9001:2000/AS9100B-compliant company, leading the air data and displacement sensing industries with stock and engineered-to-order products.
