magniX has unveiled the magni350 and magni650 electric propulsion units (EPUs), the latest advancements of the company's flight-proven EPU product offerings. Based on thousands of ground test and flight hours, these EPUs have been optimised for real-world commercial aviation applications to further accelerate the path to certification for electric aircraft and bring the future of electric aviation closer to reality.

Over the past few years, magniX has been powering commercial-grade electric aircraft such as the eBeaver and the eCaravan. Using key learnings from these ongoing flights and robust ground testing, the company has introduced a series of enhanced features to enable a more simplified, reliable and convenient adoption of all-electric power.

The 450 SHP-/ 350kW- /1,600 Nm-class magni350 EPU and the larger 850 SHP- /650kW- /3,200 Nm-class magni650 EPU share flight-proven solutions and common-core architecture and utilise the new high-performance magniDrive-100, a 170kW inverter/motor controller power electronics unit.

Operating at 2,300 rpm or less, the direct-drive EPUs are liquid cooled and designed for 30,000 ft of altitude in unpressurised environments. Both systems can drive a propeller governor and standard aircraft accessories, from the front cone of each motor.

Offering a combination of power, efficiency and reliability, the magni350 and magni650 EPUs are ready to deliver world-class environmental performance at lower operating costs.

“Based on real-world design, build and operational testing, we're making incredible strides to push the aviation industry forward and accelerate the rate at which aircraft become electric,” says magniX CEO Roei Ganzarski. “The magni350 and magni650 EPUs enable affordable, emission-free and quieter flights to communities around the world in the very near future.”
