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.
