EBAC* qualified

The Electric Brake Actuation Controller, or EBAC, which controls the Boeing 787 electric brake made by Messier-Bugatti, has passed all qualification tests on schedule.

It is now ready for certification, which is linked to the type certificate of the aircraft itself. The EBAC qualification, completed at the end of last year, reflects the effective teamwork by everybody from program partners Safran Power (Hispano-Suiza), Safran Electronics (Sagem) and Messier-Bugatti.

Hispano-Suiza is a pioneer in the technologies and systems needed for "more electric" aircraft. Operating through the Safran Power division, it designs, develops and produces electronic power controllers designed for the electrical equipment used on mainline, regional and business aircraft.
