Stocks in this article: ATRO

Astronics Corporation (NASDAQ: ATRO), a leader in advanced, high performance lighting, electrical power and automated test systems for the global aerospace and defense industries, today announced that it has been selected by Honda Aircraft Company to supply its 28VDC to 115VAC EmPOWER ® System and its Windshield Heat Controller as standard installations on the HondaJet aircraft.

Peter J. Gundermann, President and Chief Executive Officer of Astronics, commented, “The HondaJet is an efficient, fast and technologically-advanced aircraft and we are extremely pleased to have our power solutions on this innovative aircraft. We believe our unique product solutions, superior design and responsive service were drivers of Honda’s selection of Astronics.”

The EmPOWER ® Inverter is TSO-C73 certified, DO-160E compliant and FAA conforming for certification of power supply systems for Portable Electronic Devices. Built with safety, convenience and efficiency in mind, the EmPOWER ® System has ground fault interrupt, over voltage and current protection, as well as thermal load shedding built into the unit. This intelligent in-seat power system eliminates the need for external protection and control devices, reducing cost and weight. The inverter is also configured for an enable/disable input and a system in-use light for crew visibility and control per the FAA Policy Statement.

Utilizing Astronics’ patented intelligent power management, the inverter provides power to the outlet unit only after an appropriate device is properly inserted. For seamless use around the world, the outlet unit will accommodate plugs from 155 countries.

The patented EmPOWER ® System is currently in service with 150 Airline/OEM customers at over 500,000 seat locations. The 28VDC to 115VAC EmPOWER ® In-Seat Power Supply System was launched into the business jet market in 2009 and is the first intelligent power management system of its kind available to the business jet market.

The Windshield Heat Controller will provide ice and fog protection utilizing Astronics’ extensive experience developing highly reliable and efficient power generating and conditioning products. The Windshield Heat Controller adds to the family of windshield temperature control products designed and built by Astronics.
