Lilium selects Panasonic Avionics for electrical power distribution system

Astronics Corporation, a leading provider of advanced technologies for global aerospace, defence and other mission-critical industries, has been selected by Lilium to design, develop and build the Lilium Jet’s electrical power distribution system.

The power distribution units play a critical role within the Lilium Jet’s innovative energy management system. Astronics will be responsible for the secondary power distribution units (SPDUs) and charging power distribution units (CPDUs). Lilium Jets will each be equipped with two SPDUs and one CPDU.

SPDUs are responsible for high-voltage (1000 VDC) to low-voltage (28 VDC) conversion and for low-voltage distribution and protection. Compact and light weight, the SPDUs ensure a reliable supply of power from the batteries to the aircraft’s critical systems, including flight controls, avionics, navigation, communication, sensors, internal and external lights, and passenger comfort.
