Liebherr on board the E-Jet E2 from Embraer
Liebherr-Aerospace has developed, provides and services the high-lift system, the air management system and the landing gear system for the second generation of Embraer's E-Jet family. The E2 family benefits from the most advanced systems certified in the history of aviation, allowing increased flight control agility, optimized safety and comfort, as well as substantially reduced operating costs.
In June 2013, Embraer has launched the second generation of its E-Jet family of commercial aircraft, the E-Jets E2, which comprise three new versions, the E175-E2, E190-E2, and E195-E2.
The E190-E2 is expected to enter into service in the first half of 2018. The other variants will follow in 2019 (E195-E2) and in 2020 (E175-E2).
On-board with three product lines
Embraer selected Liebherr-Aerospace as the supplier of the advanced high-lift system, the integrated air management system and the nose wheel steering control module.
Therefore, Liebherr-Aerospace is on-board with three product lines: flight controls, air management systems and landing gear systems.
The high-lift system will feature a complete fly-by-wire control system with dual channel skew detection. The system includes integrated computers, highly reliable hydraulic and electro-mechanical actuators and power control units.Learn more about Liebherr flight control systems
Air management system
The air management system will feature integrated control architecture with the latest technologies in terms of lightweight electro-pneumatic and mechanical components. It includes the engine bleed air system, the air conditioning system and the cabin pressure control system. The systems will feature a very high level of control integration, with superior features to improve the passenger comfort (e.g. multi zone thermal environment management, cabin pressure smooth control), as well as the latest technology features to minimize the air system related engine fuel burn.
The compact bleed valve technology offers superior performances for enhanced maintainability, and reliability. This Liebherr technology will allow significant reductions in operational costs and CO2 emission, contributing to respect the environment.Learn more about Liebherr air management systems
Nose wheel steering control module
The nose wheel steering control module is a computer module that allows steering the aircraft’s nose landing gear when the aircraft is taxiing. The module will be adapted from the current landing gear system of the first E-Jet generation developed by Liebherr-Aerospace.Learn more about Liebherr landing gear systems
