Leader in Rugged Solid-State Power Controllers Launches its First AC SSPC
Update Time: 2019-12-20 14:23:10
Bohemia, New York (January 2016) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces a new 10-Channel, 120A, 115VAC Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC), offering advanced programmability, system health diagnostic and prognostic data, and high-power density in a compact and reliable board, certifiable to DO-160, making it ideal for use in mission system and non-flight critical applications onboard manned and unmanned aircraft. In addition to improved reliability and smart power control, the 10-Channel AC SSPC (RP-27001X) provides significant Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) savings, by replacing bulky circuit panels that consume valuable space within cabin systems and equipment racks.
- Engineered for Avionic Applications
- 115VAC Operation
- MIL-STD-704F Compliant
- DO-160 Certifiable
- SWaP Optimized — Eliminates Bulky Circuit Panels, offering up to…
- 7X Power-to-Volume Savings
- 5X Power-to-Weight Savings
- 70% Reduction in Power Dissipation
“DDC’s new high power density AC SSPC offers a reliable and efficient power control solution, optimized for aircraft mission systems, and other applications that can benefit from the advanced functionality and flexibility provided by smart power management”, stated Steve Rood Goldman, DDC’s Marketing Manager.
DDC’s highly efficient SSPCs enable significant SWaP-C savings compared with mechanical switches, breakers, and relays, saving space for other components and expanded functionality. These compact, high density 10-channel boards enable a 7X power-to-volume and 5X power-to-weight savings, compared with larger mechanical alternatives, enabling reduced space consumption and fuel costs, while extending mission range. Additional SWaP-C savings are realized through a 70% reduction in power dissipation, along with energy savings through intelligent load shedding and prioritization. Inventory costs can be saved, as these boards can be programmed to support multiple platforms and varying mission requirements.
DDC’s SSPCs have a 25X improved MTBF compared with mechanical switches, breakers, and relays, that have moving parts which are more prone to failure. They also provide real-time health and diagnostic data, enabling improved mission uptime, safety and longevity through preventative and automated maintenance. The high reliability of our SSPCs is further ensured by our field proven technology, with more than 800,000 DDC SSPC nodes installed on military and aerospace systems since 1988.
Smart Power Control
DDC’s SSPCs enable network control, programmability, and autonomous operation — simplifying vehicle control and freeing crew members’ time, so they can concentrate on mission critical tasks. They also provide channel paralleling, controlled rise/fall times, and I2t trip protection, to deliver high precision load protection and flexible power distribution. DDC’s SSPCs also offer flexible control options, including CANbus and RS-485 interfaces, and a range of discrete controls. These high power boards allow each channel to be individually programmed within a 10:1 current range, from 5 to 15 amps.
