Bell/Boeing V-22 Osprey
The Bell/Boeing V-22 Osprey is the first production aircraft in the world utilizing tilt-rotor technology. The tilt-rotor allows the V-22 to takeoff and land vertically, much like a helicopter, and once airborne, transition into horizontal high-speed, high-altitude flight by tilting the wing-tip mounted engine nacelles forward 90 degrees so that the rotors function as conventional propellers.
Eaton is a key supplier on the V-22 for engine-driven pumps, inlet particle separators, primary and back-up hydraulic power drive motors (HPDU), rotor positioning actuation motors and the cargo door DC motorpump. Hydraulic power for flight control and utility functions is provided by three 5000 psi (34,500 kPa) variable displacement, pressure compensated, inline piston pumps. Each shipset includes four inlet particle separator (IPS) blowers with two mounted in each engine nacelle.
Eaton supplies Sterer brand modules to control fluid flow for the winch and hoist operation, the hydraulic brake master cylinder, and a parking pilot/co-pilot braking transfer module.
Eaton provides a wide range of Tedeco brand components including inlet particle screens, sight gauges, chip detectors, optical sensors, Prismalites® and Lubriclones®. Other significant parts include drain valves, check valves, float switches, drain plugs, full flow chip detectors and desiccant breathers.
Eaton also supplies a ramp control valve, rotor brake valve, remote switching valves, and local switching isolation valves.
