PARIS, 15 June 2015. Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. engineers and officials have selected Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co.

Each aircraft will have five 250-amp TRUs, which will provide DC bus power throughout the aircraft. Gulfstream previously selected the same TRU for use on the G650 aircraft, providing commonality across all three aircraft models.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Gulfstream and are pleased to be working with them on the G500 and G600,” says Ed Fuhr, vice president, Power Solutions for Crane Aerospace & Electronics. “We are excited to provide our lightweight and reliable TRUs on these new, advanced business jets.”
