To Be Installed on A380s
AMETEK Aerospace says it will build and install engine
monitoring equipment for the advanced GP7200 high-bypass turbofan
engine on the new Airbus A380 aircraft.
AMETEK will supply a full complement of engine sensors for the
new engine, including sensors for temperatures, pressures, oil
level, oil temperature, and fuel flow.
Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer,
said "This is a strategic win that solidifies our position as the
leading supplier of aircraft engine sensors to the largest
manufacturers of commercial aircraft engines."
Joining The Team
The GP7200 engine is being developed by an alliance of GE
Aircraft Engines and Pratt & Whitney to power the Airbus A380
super jumbo aircraft. The engine is expected to complete
certification by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Joint
Aviation Authorities of the European Economic Community in mid-2005
with the A380 aircraft scheduled to enter service in 2006.
The A380 super jumbo, which will carry 555
passengers, will be the world's first twin-deck, four-aisle
The sensor suite includes the T1.2 temperature sensor, the
T2.5/P2.5 sensor, the core temperature sensor, the T3 temperature
sensor, T4.9 EGT probes and harnesses, the engine oil temperature
sensor, the engine oil level sensor, the delta pressure oil
pressure switch, the mass fuel flow meter, the oil filter delta
pressure sensor, the engine oil pressure sensor, the fuel filter
delta pressure sensor and the fuel manifold pressure sensor.
