At the AEA Convention in New Orleans this week, True Blue Power unveiled a new 4,000-watt AC-to-AC frequency converter that weighs 19.8 pounds. According to the company, the TFC4000 is the lightest unit in its power class and the quietest frequency converter available, while delivering “15 percent more power than competing units.” The converter powers electronics and appliances in aircraft cabins, including computers, TVs, vacuums, galley equipment, and inflight entertainment systems, “turning three-phase 115 VAC at 360 to 800 Hz into single-phase 115 VAC at 60 Hz.”
True Blue Power also highlighted the TWC15 wireless chargers, a new series in its electrical power solutions lineup. The FAA-certified charges are also Qi-compliant and deliver up to 15 watts to charge smartphones, wireless earbuds, and personal electronic devices.
Available in three configurations, the TWC15 chargers are fitted with pre-drilled and tapped screw holes and can be mounted with a charging gap or depth of up to nine millimeters. The products range from a thin module .21 inches deep, a large module at 2.9 sq in, and a compact unit measuring 2.45 by 2.28 inches.
