Boeing 737

Curtiss-Wright Controls supplies a large number and wide variety of products that are used on all nine variants of the Boeing 737 short- to medium-range, single-aisle jet. These inlcude mission-critical components, such as electromechanical rotary actuators, fire protection systems, solenoids, high-lift actuation, maintenance recorders, rotary position sensors and trailing-edge flap drives.  Originally developed as a shorter, less expensive airliner based on Boeing’s 707 and 727, the Boeing 737 is now considered the most ordered and manufactured jet in airliner history. 

 

How We Serve This Platform

Solenoids

A Solenoid is an electromagnetic device or driver that typically produces a uniform magnetic field that is utilized in multiple configurations and applications.  The most commonly application using solenoid technology would be a hydraulic or pneumatic valve that can be configured in multiple options such as a 2-way, 3-way, latching, pusher or puller type valves. Most solenoids may be configured with multiple coil options for redundancy as well as integrating diodes for various levels of protection.

Position Sensors

A position sensors is an electromechanical sensors that offer position feedback. The Linear sensors are measured in length of ranges from .2” to 196” (5mm to 5,000mm) while the Rotary sensors measurement angles from 10° to 360°. These position sensors, Linear Variable Differential Transformers (LVDT’S) or Rotary Position Sensors (RVDT’s) utilize proven technology such as inductance, potentiometric, eddy current and hall effect to measure length or angular rotation, accurately and reliably for your position measurement needs.
