LUCAS WINS CONTRACT FROM IPTN

 RESTON, Va., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucas has been awarded a contract from IPTN, Nusantara Aircraft Industries Ltd. of Indonesia, to supply the Power Management Unit (PMU) for the N250 commuter aircraft. The PMU is a cockpit-mounted data concentrator which translates the data from the engine switches into a binary code and sends the data down an ARINC 429 data link to the Full Authority Digital Engine Controls (FADEC) mounted on the engine. The FADEC is also produced by Lucas for the Allison GMA2100 engine which powers the N250 aircraft. The value of the contract is undisclosed.
 Both the PMU and the FADEC are produced at the Lucas Electronics facility in Birmingham, England. In addition to these two products, Lucas also provides the flight control system, which is the world's first civil commuter application with full fly-by-wire authority on all three axes of flight control, plus the cockpit transparencies, control equipment and passenger cabin windows to the N250 aircraft.
 Lucas Electronics supplies electronic equipment and embedded software for control and monitoring purposes both in collaboration with other Lucas business units and independently in the aerospace, automotive and industrial systems markets.
 The business is part of Lucas Industries plc, a leading international supplier of advanced technology systems, components and services to the world's aerospace, automotive and other selected markets, with sales of $4.5 billion.
