50 Years of Innovation.

Time Tested Solutions. Reduced Costs and Time.


As the global leader in the design, testing, manufacturing and supply of pressure, temperature and liquid flow switches and sensors, CCS’ Airborne division provides a wide range of standard and custom switches and sensors for the aerospace, defense, commercial and business aviation markets. CCS also manufactures originally designed PMA parts for Boeing, Airbus and numerous general aviation aircraft. The unique application and industry leading negative rate disc spring principle, pioneered by CCS Engineers makes CCS Dual Snap switches exceptionally well-suited for the most difficult aerospace functions. Most major commercial and military aircraft as well as missiles, launchers and other space technology systems use CCS Dual Snap switches which offer outstanding dependability and repeatability under conditions of severe vibration, shock and temperature variation.  The negative rate disc spring frees Dual-Snap switches from the problems of ordinary constant rate sensing elements such as flat metal diaphragms, bourdon tubes and bellows. The switch does not “trace” fluctuating pressures and therefore the set points STAY set, even under the harshest ambient conditions. The disc spring design makes Dual Snap switches impervious to surges and pump ripples encountered in conventional sensing elements. Contact chatter, premature fatigue and other common switch complaints are eliminated.

All Dual-Snap aerospace switches are designed or can be modified to meet various requirements of MIL-DTL-9395, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-202 or RTCA/DO-160. These requirements, among others, include Environmental test requirements such as salt spray, temperature cycling, humidity, sand and dust, moisture resistance; physical characteristic tests such as vibration, shock, and acceleration; electrical characteristic tests such as dielectric, insulation resistance and contact resistance.

With over 50 years as the global leader in standard and custom designed pressure, temperature and liquid flow switches, CCS is the known choice for aerospace and defense applications.
