Generator for Eurofighter

The Challenge
Developing a reliable emergency power supply concept for the Eurofighter Typhoon’s on-board power system (115 volts at 400 Hz).

VINCORION makes users’ lives safer. This also applies to the crew of the twin-engine Eurofighter Typhoon multirole combat aircraft. The Eurofighter’s on-board power is supplied via a 115 V, 400 Hz network. Two VINCORION generators are available as a backup for the emergency power supply in every Eurofighter.

VINCORION’s Solution
The 28-volt emergency power generator from VINCORION is oil-cooled, brushless, low-wear, and has an output of 2.5 kW. The system runs parallel to the engine in the Eurofighter and is driven by it via a shaft. In the event of an emergency, the VINCORION generator powers all of the relevant systems for five minutes, including making it possible for the pilot to safely escape the aircraft via the ejection seat.

Two VINCORION generators are installed in each of the more than 550 Eurofighters in use around the world. VINCORION has been on board since large-scale production of the aircraft began. Global maintenance is carried out by VINCORION’s highly skilled service technicians with decades of generator expertise.

The Eurofighter solution is a prime example of the many long-standing, successful partnerships between demanding customers and VINCORION. We stand by your side!
