Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected by Airbus to supply the cockpit static inverter for the Airbus A320 and A330 families. The agreement marks a historic milestone for the company:  It is the first contract in the segment of aircraft systems ATA Chapter 24 - Electrical Systems - and opens Liebherr the door to deploy its know-how and latest stand-alone power electronics technologies in this high potential business sector.  

Two Liebherr companies have developed the cockpit static inverter:  Liebherr-Elektronik GmbH, based in Lindau (Germany), Liebherr’s center of excellence for electronics and a major player in its field, is responsible for all activities regarding the hardware, including production, and Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Liebherr’s center of excellence for air management systems in Toulouse (France), provides the inverter’s software.  Both companies have vast experience in power electronics and joined forces to offer Airbus the latest technology.

“Airbus and Liebherr have been cooperating since the very beginnings of Airbus. Every civil Airbus aircraft model flies with Liebherr technology on board. Now, we are very happy to add stand-alone power electronics to our already broad systems and components portfolio, and we are looking forward to further expanding our collaboration with Airbus in Power-on-Board technologies”, explains Francis Carla, Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS.
