At cruising speed from the simulator cab
A flight simulator enables virtual pilot training through a total immersion experience, both for small and large commercial aircraft. It is currently the most advanced form of virtual pilot training.
The purpose of a flight simulator is to offer a flight experience as real as possible. With this aim, it reproduces geographic nuances and the layout of multiple airports, airfields and heliports worldwide. It even recreates the effects of different virtual wind tunnels around the simulated aircraft models.
Furthermore, flight simulator companies provide a replica of specific cabins with the specific array of instruments used in each of them. The life-size replica is mounted on hydraulic or electromechanical actuators controlled by advanced computerized systems.
Flight simulator companies bring structure and organization to flight simulation, and also feedback and resources that may otherwise be unavailable. Therefore, the greatest benefit airliners get out of these training systems is the assurance that their pilots are well-trained according to standard operating procedures.
When knowing the position is key: MAGPOT is a low impedance linear position transducer that guarantees high precision.
In brief, flight simulator companies assist companies on three fronts:
- Thorough technology. The combination of software, hardware, and a real-time instructor give simulation sessions a truly realistic feel of flight. Still, they occur in a clearly educational setting. Taking feedback from the flight simulator users, developers continue to push the bounds of their devices, making constant updates to enhance the experience.
- Utmost professionalism. The flight simulator fosters skillfulness to operate an aircraft, in order to make it possible for pilots to simply fly, learn, and enjoy themselves.
- Recreating reality. Flight simulator developers overcome the limitations of their devices by equipping virtual pilots with a genuine flight experience.
WM SIMULATOR is a Thai flight simulator company. At their premises in Samut Prakan, an industrial area close to Bangkok City, simulation meets reality.
The flight simulator FSTD Type6-A320 operated by WM SIMULATOR received the approval of the Department of Thailand Civil Aviation in 2012. Thus, the simulator can be used to train pilots, from beginners wanting to build their skills to experts wishing to strengthen their knowledge and ability.
WM SIMULATOR has a flight simulator capable of reproducing every aspect at the training crews’ disposal. It recreates sounds, visuals, vibrations, and other movements. Recent scientific studies have shown that the use of technology such as vibration and a dynamic seat within flight simulators is really effective and provides the best training for saving lives in critical moments.
With their long-life span, the maintenance-free MAGPOT is well suited for industrial engineering applications.
In order to reproduce different situations that can arise during a flight, linear magnetic position sensors are essential. This type of sensor is capable of detecting and reporting the position of a magnetic field along its axis.
REGNER® has designed and manufactured a linear potentiometer that guarantees high precision at any time. It is composed of two magnets, one exterior and the other internal. By bringing the exterior magnet into a proximity necessary to connect with the internal magnetic attractors, engineers obtain a linear position reading based on the location of the exterior magnet. As the exterior magnet moves, then so does the electrical output of the MAGPOT.
Their robust design with a high-quality built-in is the perfect choice for a range of applications including testing and measurement equipment, consumer appliances, automotive and robotics.
Because of its customizability, the MAGPOT gives engineers more design freedom. It is often difficult for engineers to find the right potentiometer with the precise parameters they seek. However, REGNER® provides exactly that, customizing the linear position transducer according to each customer’s needs.
In addition to flexibility, engineers always appreciate a prompt delivery that allows them to test their prototypes rapidly. WM SIMULATOR can attest to this. In less than four days, the Product Design Manager solved some doubts, got 3D Models, and received the relevant MAGPOTS. They might not have even noticed that they were dealing with a company 7,500 miles away!
After integrating the potentiometer model into the simulator, getting it to work and carrying out some tests, WM SIMULATOR extended their congratulations to REGNER® for the potentiometer’s ‘great work’.
REGNER® is very proud to know that our potentiometers are used in such technologically advanced applications, and to contribute to aeronautics developments. Once again, we keep true to our motto: improving lives through technology. What could be better?
