HSI Continues to Meet Aerospace Sensor Demands Head On

HSI Sensing has continued to meet the unique challenges of aerospace engineering for more than 40 years by providing mission-critical solutions for everything from seat belt connections and shock sensing to fluid level monitoring and wing positioning.

There are several ways that HSI Sensing sets ourselves apart in the aerospace sensor industry.

We Are AS9100 Certified

When we take on your aerospace project, you can be confident that we have the credentials to provide quality work. The resulting product is so precise, we can detect 1/100 of an inch of movement to individual degrees of rotation.

Proven Reliability

Not only is our technology highly effective, it is also highly reliable. Our extremely reliable products can handle millions of cycles in mission critical applications and hermetically sealed switches ensure safety no matter where they are used.  And we’re no new kid on the block – we come backed by decades of industry expertise. Our engineering team has years of experience designing high capability solutions for the aerospace industry. This experience allows us to identify and produce solutions effectively by understanding the unique needs and demands that are required to design sensors for this industry.

Rapid Solutions

Our extensive line of Rapid Solutions can take any product platform and modify it to fit many applications. Aerospace is a demanding industry that requires innovative solutions and our Design Engineering Solutions process is the answer for mission-critical projects. Our product designs have no steady state power draw which allows for efficient and sustainable energy usage throughout their lifetimes.

Flexible Applications

Our sensor technology is versatile and can be used for a wide range of applications including:

  • Extension/retraction in wing flaps
  • Fuel vapor sensor
  • Missile safety system signal
  • Hatch Closure
  • Space station equipment pod position
  • Throttle body position
  • Position of pressure differentiator
  • Astronaut and athletic body temperature pill
  • Aerospace certified door sensors
  • Pilot seat ejection and activates homing beacon
  • Space shuttle cargo bay sensor monitors camera position
  • Oil level in reserve tanks

Since 1968 HSI Sensing, an ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 registered company, has been the premier choice for custom and standard reed switches, proximity sensors, and other sensing technologies for the aerospace industry. Our products are used in a variety of aerospace applications including commercial and military jet engines, security systems, space station equipment and more. At HSI Sensing, we know reliability and precision are two of the biggest keys and customer needs when sourcing solutions, and it’s with our experience in design, engineering and manufacturing that we can meet these demands head-on.
