Boeing 787

Collins Aerospace's solid state distribution systems are the standard on numerous airplane platforms with over 2 million devices in service. Our systems are designed to provide power distribution functionality for the aircraft of today and tomorrow.

Our primary power distribution systems and secondary power distribution systems enable any electrically powered devices, such as window wipers, fans, pumps, galley and interior lights, to be controlled and protected. These remotely controlled solid state devices can be placed throughout the aircraft, eliminating components, reducing wiring, and lowering the weight and cost.

The reduction in weight contributes to aircraft fuel efficiency enhancement. In addition, aircraft manufacturers benefit from the significant reduction to the power distribution system's installation time. Fault detection within the system enhances the maintainability of the aircraft, making it easier for operators to identify and correct maintenance issues.
