LYNNWOOD, Wash., 3 Dec. 2014.Avionics experts designing systems for COMAC C919 family of narrow body aircraft needed power electronics modules for the aircraft's fly-by-wire systems. They found their solution from Crane Aerospace & Electronics in Lynnwood, Wash.

Designers at Honeywell Inc. who are providing the COMAC C919 flight-control electronics are asking the Crane Power Solutions segment to provide flight-critical and reliable power management and conversion.

The Honeywell flight-control electronics are part of the C919 flight-control fly-by-wire system, which enable an electronic interface between the cockpit and the aircraft flight control surfaces.

The Crane power control module selects the proper source, conditions, and supplies uninterruptible power to the flight-control electronics. To ensure availability of power under all conditions, the power-control module can select from three independent power sources.

The unit provides isolation between the aircraft power systems, removes transients and provides reliable power for this critical equipment.
