Aircraft Throttle Control Unit


Electro-Mechanical Assemblies

With our partner Reliance Precision UK, we design, develop, and manufacture "custom" products.   On this page is an example of an aircraft throttle control mechanism that incorporates a high precision anti-backlash gearing.   This provides very accurate tactile feedback to the user as the throttle is moved threw its range of motion.

Aircraft Product

Accurate Tactile feedback is becoming important in many types of systems that were once guided via mechanical linkages in direct contact with the human hand.   Our hands have a complex sensor system that allows us to sense quickly between coarse and fine movement and make decisions based on this input.

Haptic or Tactile feedback is used to convey information to the pilot.   This system mimics what was once done via steel cable, mechanical linkages, or hydraulic systems.

Geared Systems - Key Features

  • Redundancy of components to avoid complete failure should one malfunction
  • Reduce overall system costs
  • Allows for space savings
  • Allows for remote operation

Typical Product Use

A few areas where you can find these products in use are listed below:

  • Aircraft Controls
  • Simulation Systems

Space Saving Product

Elimination of traditional linkages and systems reduce weight and free-up additional space for other usage.
