Over the last 30+ years we have become known as THE experts in electronics design and manufacturing for aerospace applications.

From motor drives and power converters to electromechanical actuators and position sensors, Our engineers specialise in finding innovative solutions for your electrical power network.

Our wide range of electric motor drives include:

Accurate control and reliable power for the pilot.

These motor drives help to drive the Stick Command and Monitoring Unit (SCMU), as well as the Throttle Electronic Control Unit (TECU).

Are you sitting comfortably?

Our motor drives help to power the pilot and copilot seats. It allows them to adjust their seats and provides comfort at an attractive price.

Improve your battery performance in all conditions

Our Start Boost System (SBS) provides extra energy on the 28 VDC network during engine start-up – this enhances the performance of the DC starter-generator.

Our Power Current Controller (PCC) controls the transient starting torque in order to dramatically reduce torque ripples and overshoots – this increases the DC motor reliability.

Ensuring your equipment is always powered up and ready to use. We provide the key electric power components to control the aircraft galley equipment (oven, chillers, trash compactor).

The system controls the electronic equipment including fans, compressor, man-machine interface etc.

Our electronic drives can be used with DC brush or brushless motors to control the speed, torque (or thrust) or position of the system.

There are three essential parts:
Power control: to adjust the voltage/current supplied to the electric motor
Control module: to generate piloting signals to the power electronics from external inputs
Monitoring: to provide feedback on the position of the motor/electromechanical actuator

Every design is unique for the application. To see the range of electric motor drives, please visit our specialist site, www.meggittpower.com.
