First high voltage electrical harnesses roll off the line for the all-electric Lilium Jet

Lilium, developer of the all-electric vertical take-off and landing (“eVTOL”) jet, announced today that the first high-voltage electrical harnesses for the Lilium Jet have been completed.

“A collaboration between Lilium, its design and build partner for electrical wiring integration, GKN Aerospace, and connector supplier, Rosenberger, the high voltage electrical harnesses represent a critical system on the Lilium Jet” according to the press release. “The harness system, for which Lilium has been granted patents in the U.S. and Europe, is essential for the Lilium Jet’s safety critical power distribution architecture.

“An electrical harness is a system of cables bundled into a single secure sleeve to protect, optimise space and simplify installation. Designed for safety and redundancy, the harnesses will act as the aircraft’s main electrical arteries, distributing power from the ten batteries, located on the sides of the fuselage, to the jet propulsion units, embedded into the aircraft’s main wings and canards. The harness system has been optimized for high performance at low weight enabling a voltage of more than 900 V.”
