Avionic Instruments is at Booth No. 3417 with two of its newer electrical power ­generation, conversion and conditioning products.  Its 2-KVA static inverter is designed and qualified with current component ­technology and innovative thermal/mechanical techniques. The design provides overall device isolation, excellent overload and non-linear load handling capability. It is reliable even in extreme thermal and high-level vibration installations, the Avenel, N.J.-based company said. It is available in output configurations of 115 or 230 VAC and 50, 60 and 400 Hz, single phase.<o:p></o:p>

The 50/60 Hz static inverters are designed for cabin entertainment systems, galley accessories, personal computers and telecommunications. They also provide power for special purpose military and medical aircraft. The 400 Hz units can provide emergency backup power or AC loads on strictly DC-based aircraft.

The Avionic Instruments DC-to-DC dimming ­controller is available in fixed voltage, rheostat-controlled, ­poten­tiometer and voltage control configurations. All contain a protection feature that provides a delayed restart after tripping due to over-temperature, output overvoltage and output over-current conditions. This ensures low power operation during repetitive fault conditions. The new five-volt 75-watt unit features a 31.4-percent reduction in weight from the company’s standard five-volt 75-watt unit.
