How Honeywell Helps the Embraer Legacy 500 Fly On

August 12, 2014 | Author: Gwennie Cheung

A number of Honeywell Aerospace products contributed to the certification of Embraer’s newest midsize jet, the Legacy 500, offering a new level of comfort and reliability in business aviation.

The HTF7500E turbofan engine delivers an optimal balance of performance and value with low maintenance costs and high reliability for today’s business jet operators. The HTF7500E uses Honeywell’s single annular combustor for emissions reduction (SABER) technology to reduce the Legacy 500’s NOx emissions to 29 percent less than Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection standards, with ample margin for CO, unburned hydrocarbons and smoke emissions. The HTF7500E’s efficient engine design further reduces CO2 emissions while lowering aircraft operating costs through reduced fuel consumption.

The 36-150EMB APU and starter-generator are integrated systems that supply pneumatic and electric power for the aircraft while on the ground and in flight. Featuring a ported shroud design, the 36-150EMB APU has 10 percent more flow and pressure than previous models for faster, cooler starting of the main engine and runs at a lower load point to reduce fuel burn and improve reliability.

The Ovation® Select cabin management system provides passengers with state-of-the-art connectivity for work and leisure via their smartphone, tablet or installed remote controls. Through an intuitive interface that integrates high-definition screens, remote controls and other electronics developed for the ultimate passenger experience, Honeywell’s Ovation Select enables passengers to stay informed and connected with their business operations while traveling. In addition to controlling the system’s entertainment and productivity components, Ovation Select also puts lighting, seats, temperature and galley controls at the passengers’ fingertips.

The air conditioning system, cabin pressure control system, supplemental cooling system and ventilation system are all part of the integrated environmental control system (ECS). Through a holistic approach, Honeywell is able to provide a more comfortable experience for passengers by minimizing changes in the cabin environment and reducing the workload for the crew. The Honeywell ECS is the highest efficiency, lowest weight solution in the industry, providing the Legacy 500 with reduced fuel consumption.
