Locking unit for oxygen masks in application

Leading aircraft manufacturers worldwide entrust KENDRION with their passengers’ safety. In the unlikely event of pressure loss in the cabin, oxygen masks are automatically released overhead the passenger seats. For this application KENDRION has developed and produced the entire locking unit with aviation certified materials.

A bistable solenoid system is the core of the unit. During normal operation the integrated permanent solenoid maintains the locked state currentless. In case of an emergency, a brief electric pulse activates the locking unit via the coil. The drop down deployment container opens and the oxygen masks are released.

 

Product features

  • Reduced weight through compact design

  • Optimised energy consumption through currentless locking

  • High functional safety in accordance with aviation customer specifications

  • Already used in the B787, B737, A320 and A330

 

Compact solenoid locks for galley systems and for luggage bins, or linear solenoids for locking power hatracks and for seat  adjustment in various aircraft programs are examples for KENDRIONs wide range of solutions.
