|Astronics Advanced Electronic Systems Introduces New DC Electronic Circuit Breaker Unit|
Revolutionary Versatility for Rotorcraft, Business Jets, and Other Aircraft Power Systems
"This unit combines new features based on years of flight experience and customer feedback. Aircraft manufacturers have asked for simpler, smaller and lighter ECBUs for installation in tight spaces. They have asked for the ability to be able to configure the units themselves based on varied missions and endcustomer requirements. We've listened closely, and with this new ECBU, we give them the tools to achieve their goals. In the future, this new family of products will enable customers to easily grow their system with components, such as an AC ECB card or I/O card, to craft a custom architecture for varied platforms," said Kellsey Justus, Vice President of Airborne Power and Control at Astronics AES.
As previously announced, a version of this unit will be certified on the Textron Denali aircraft. Astronics is taking orders for the 1448 DC ECBU now.
For over 20 years, Astronics AES has delivered intelligent power management systems to the world's aerospace industry. The patented CorePower® system has served in over 10,000,000 failure-free ECB flight hours. Located in Kirkland, Washington, Astronics AES is an industry-leading manufacturer of aircraft electrical power systems, including power generation and distribution.
