Crane Aerospace & Electronics was selected by Gulfstream Aerospace to supply its Eldec transformer rectifier units (TRU) on the Gulfstream G500 and G600.
Each aircraft will have five 250A TRUs, which will provide DC bus power throughout the aircraft. Gulfstream previously selected the same TRU for use on the G650, providing commonality across all three aircraft models.
Ed Fuhr, vice president, power solutions – Crane Aerospace & Electronics, said, “We have a long-standing relationship with Gulfstream and are pleased to be working with them on the G500 and G600. We are excited to provide our lightweight and reliable TRUs on these new, advanced business jets.”
Crane Aerospace & Electronics has been the world’s leading supplier of transformer rectifier units (TRUs) for commercial and business aircraft since the 1960s.
The high-efficiency 250A TRU offers 115V AC, 3-phase current at 400Hz input, with 28V DC output power. Crane TRUs are rugged, exceptionally reliable and meet stringent RTCA/DO-160 standards.
