AMETEK AEROSPACE SELECTED BY ROCKWELL COLLINS TO PROVIDE CABIN POWER CONTROL SYSTEM FOR GLOBAL 5000 BUSINESS JET


Advanced System Incorporates Patented AMPHION Solid-State Controller


Oct 07, 2003




WILMINGTON, MA – AMETEK Aerospace will provide Rockwell Collins with the Cabin Power Distribution and Control System for the Bombardier Global 5000 intercontinental business jet.  The AMETEK system will be integrated into the Collins Airshow 21 system as part of the cabin electronics solution on board the Global 5000.

At the heart of the AMETEK system is its new AMPHION Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC) that combines circuit breaker, load monitoring and relay functions in a small, cost-effective plug-in package.  AMPHION SSPC offers remote load control power measurement and over-current protection as well as provides arc-fault protection for wiring and electrical loads. Its patented circuitry prevents a device failure in a short-circuit condition and its unique “fail-open” feature prevents a load from remaining powered and unprotected. 

Collins Airshow 21 provides the Global 5000 with an advanced systems architecture to support a complete line of cabin electrical and electronic features.  It allows Global 5000 passengers and crew to control nearly all aspects of the cabin environment including information, entertainment and various environmental systems and allows for easy installation of future upgrades. The Bombardier Global 5000 is among the world’s most advanced business jets, offering the widest and most comfortable cabin in its class.     

AMETEK Aerospace is a unit of AMETEK Electronic Instruments Group and a leader in the development and manufacture of engine and aircraft monitoring systems, data acquisition units, fuel and fluid measurement systems, cockpit instruments and displays, engine and airframe sensors, and cable and harness assemblies.

AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE-listed, ticker symbol: AME) is a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electric motors with annual sales of more than $1 billion.
