UTC Aerospace Systems to provide the electric system for Embraer's second generation E-Jets

Embraer has chosen UTC Aerospace Systems to provide the electric system for its new second generation E-Jet aircraft. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The electric system comprises electric power generation, emergency power generation, primary power distribution and secondary power distribution.

Built on the success of the first generation E-Jet power generation system, the second generation E-Jet system incorporates the latest integrated drive generator technology and will provide up to 50 percent more power in a similarly sized unit.

The primary and secondary power distribution systems will provide greater performance and reliability at significantly lower weight. Innovative technologies will provide Embraer additional flexibility to make changes and updates more effectively.

"We are proud to continue our valued relationship with Embraer and to support their advanced E-Jet aircraft with this high performance, integrated aircraft electric system," said Tim White, president, UTC Aerospace Systems Electric Systems. "The system combines proven products with innovations to support the new E-Jet requirements for improved performance and reliability."
