Honeywell Aerospace has been selected to provide several vital aircraft subsystems for the new 737 MAX, Boeing's new family of airplanes. The 737 MAX will come equipped with the latest Honeywell Electronic Bleed Air System (EBAS), in addition to other existing Honeywell 737 systems that will lower the cost of ownership for operators, while increasing reliability, efficiency, and comfort.
The Honeywell EBAS is designed to take airflow from the airplane engines to provide cabin pressurization and environmental cabin controls, and bring warm air to the wings to mitigate potential icing. The Honeywell EBAS includes an updated Pack Flow and Temperature Controller (PFTC) which enables increased cabin climate efficiency allowing for reduced fuel consumption.
The new system allows operators to monitor airplane diagnostics electronically, making troubleshooting easier and maintenance less time-intensive. It also gives them more information at their fingertips. Operators can easily isolate system issues and quickly implement a solution.
