This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) covers the functional, design, construction, and test requirements for Brake Temperature Monitoring Systems (BTMS), and sometimes referred to as Brake Temperature Indication Systems (BTIS). The BTMS is limited to aircraft where a dispatch indication and brake temperature indication is required.
The scope of this BTMS equipment shall be limited to the 1) brake temperature sensor or indicator, 2) temperature reference measurement, if required, and 3) processing and communication of brake temperature.
This recommended practice will not address cockpit ergonomics and aircraft operating procedures.
Rationale: An Aircraft Brake Temperature Monitoring System Aerospace Standard has been stabilized because it was no longer relevant. A gap now exists that is best filled with an ARP that covers a broader issues of brake temperature measurement.
