Aircraft Power Generation
As a recognized leader in both aircraft power distribution and generation, Astronics develops products such as the Brushless Induction Starter Generator System that are a departure from the technology developed in the mid-20th century. Using state-of-the-art brushless technology, the Astronics system offers a 68% reduction in ownership cost through significantly lowered maintenance costs and unprecedented reliability.
Starter Generator Unit
The Astronics CorePower Brushless Starter Generator Unit (SGU) is a great deal more robust than today's brushed units. Astronics’ brushless starter generator is capable of running an average of 5,000 hour cycle between maintenance checks.
Power Conversion Unit
The Power Conversion Unit (PCU) utilizes embedded software to allow a smooth programmable start and full rated power at aircraft ground-idle. Ask your Astronics sales representative about APU mode to eliminate or emulate an APU offering passenger comfort without the need for ground power.
