By Jane Hobson, in Hamburg Germany


HamburgBurrana announced today at AIX Hamburg that it has obtained Airbus’ approval to market its RISE in-seat power solution to multiple airlines on the A320 family of aircraft, following successful completion of the Airbus acceptance test in Hamburg. RISE Power will now be available for factory installation for aircraft deliveries starting in Q2 2023.

Burrana has also secured an unidentified launch customer on the A320 and A321 aircraft types. Under the contract, Burrana will supply more than fifty aircraft with 3 Amp (15 Watt) USB-A and -C combo jacks at every seat, as well as 110 VAC Power outlets in Premium Economy.

The solution is a simple installation architecture with minimal components, consisting of a small, lightweight housing either double USB jacks or 110 Volt plus USB outlets, compact seat power boxes, and harnesses. Burrana will also provide product support and manage spares globally.

The solution offers an innovative approach without compromising on space, weight, ergonomics and aesthetics. It provides airlines with the fastest USB charging in the industry with 15 Watt (3 Amp) charging via both USB-A and USB-C ports. The system can also be upgraded to 60W USB-C ports by simply swapping out the jacks.

The RISE 48VDC architecture provides greater reliability with reduced size, weight, and CO2 emissions. Intelligent power-sharing distribution and load shed management ensures greater utilization and efficiency of available power in the cabin, with multiple levels of redundancy bringing passengers facing failures to almost zero. RISE Power also makes maintenance and future fleet planning easy with feature-rich usage data reporting on passenger behavior and system performance.

Burrana CEO Graham Macdonald, said, "This line-fit collaboration with Airbus for RISE in-seat power is a significant milestone for Burrana as we continue to deliver brand-enhancing cabin technology solutions to airlines. Once fully installed, thousands of passengers will be powering their devices with our in-seat power solution at any one time."
