For this application Kendrion Kuhnke Automation has developed and produced the entire locking unit with aviation certified materials.
A bistable solenoid system is the core of the unit. During normal operation the integrated permanent solenoid maintains the locked state currentless. In case of emergency, a brief electric pulse activates the locking unit via the coil. The drop down deployment container opens and the oxygen masks are released.
- Reduced weight through compact design
- Optimized energy consumption through currentless locking
- High functional safety in accordance with aviation customer specifications
