Aircraft Carbon Brake Thermocouple

banner-thermocouple-brakeThe new generation of carbon brakes offers better efficiency but reach more than 1000°C during and after operation

THERMOCOAX Brake Thermocouple :

The brake thermocouple measures the temperature in the heart of the carbon disk in real time and makes the value available for monitoring. It gives a “hot brake” alarm to the pilot.

Due to this brake thermocouple, the pilot receives a “Go/No Go” clear message for take-off authorization. Also this monitoring avoids too early a re-entry of the landing gear, and so avoids a risk of tire explosion in the wheel compartment. This monitoring done by the brake thermocouple increases the efficiency of aircraft fleets by reducing turnaround time by around 30 minutes.
