Aircraft Power Supplies
We design and develop custom aircraft power supplies for commercial airborne applications for OEM’s serving the aircraft/aviation industry. DSC Power Solutions specializes in providing custom aviation power supplies that meet Boeing and Airbus’s aeronautics specifications required for operation on their planes. Our designs meet stringent temperature, efficiency, shock, and vibration requirements that accompany many aircraft LRU applications.
DSC Power Solutions understands the primary need for meeting the EMC and input requirements of DO-160D/E and takes a conservative approach to insure a successful development of a power supply that complies with variable frequency, EMI, power factor, and harmonics standards.
Our initial approach is to use a pre-qualified, isolated front-end and integrating it with a pre-designed output section providing a complete power solution. The major advantage of this model is that it expedites the prototype process and mitigates the risk of not passing the expensive qualification process on the first attempt.
We offer no charge samples and “build-to-order” production runs for any of our designs. Lead-times may vary depending upon material availability. Some units may require MOQ. Please consult with our sales dept (email us or call 888-893-0208) for any questions or special requests regarding your particular requirements.
Benefits of our Conventional Design Approach:
- Lower cost NRE to develop a customized power supply
- Shortens lead-time for prototype sample delivery
- Reduces the risk associated with the creation of a new design and the production development
Our purpose is to offer a viable airborne power solution alternative that meets the primary need to be in compliance with aeronautics specification RTCA/DO-160D/E, Boeing's D6-44588 and Airbus’s ABD0100.1.8 specifications.
Aircraft Power Supply Compliance Design Parameters:
- RTCA/DO-160D for conducted emissions, power input and susceptibility requirements (Section 21, 16 & 18)
- Airbus ABD0100.1.8 issue D for power factor and input current harmonic
- Wide frequency operating range (360Hz -800Hz)
- Extended Holdup Time
For those unique applications that require a full custom approach, our engineers can design a completely new power supply from a specification or print.
DSC Power Solutions, Inc. has developed air flight power supplies for LRU units powering instrumentation, in-flight entertainment systems and peripheral equipment.
