Crane's Sensor

80-057 Proximity Sensor Family


Crane’s proven sensor and switch family are used on multiple applications, including landing gear, doors, secondary flight controls and thrust reversers. Crane’s sensors have recently been chosen for several engine nacelle applications, including fan cowl latch and thrust reverser sensing for Trent XWB, LEAP-1A and PurePower 1100G engines for A350 XWB and A320neo aircraft, respectively. These sensors were selected by our customers for their proven performance, high-reliability and overall value.

   

 

Technology Evolution

Founded in 1957 as ELDEC corporation, Crane Aerospace & Electronics’ location in Lynnwood, Washington made a name for itself by revolutionizing the way proximity sensing was accomplished on commercial and military aircraft, mainly by creating the industry’s first no-moving-parts sensor with dramatically improved reliability.

 

Since its start, the ELDEC brand, now known as Crane Sensing Components & Systems, has been a leader in position indication and control systems. Today, Crane sensors are on everything from helicopters to large commercial aircraft to business jets to UAVs.
