European Light Protected Patrol Vehicle (LPPV) to receive power-distribution modules from DDC



BOHEMIA, N.Y., 29 Sept. 2011. Vetronics designers at Thales UK in Weybridge, England, needed 16-Channel programmable solid-state power controllers (SSPCs) for the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence Foxhound light protected patrol vehicle (LPPV). They found their solution from Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y.

DDC is providing its RP-20161XXFC1 power-distribution module for the programmable SSPCs that Thales UK is building for the LPPV's electrical and electronic architecture.

Thales chose DDC power electronics because of the performance of DDC's SSPC technology, as well as the power-distribution module's programmability and multichannel capabilities, DDC officials say. Also considered was DDC's support for the General Vehicle Architecture (GVA). The SSPC is an element of the electrical and electronic architecture that Thales is providing to LPPV prime contractor Force Protection Europe in Leamington Spa, England.

The RP-20161XXFC1 power-distribution module replaces conventional circuit breakers, switches, and relays; increases system reliability; saves size, weight, and power (SWaP); reduces electromagnetic (EMI) interference; has network-enabled load control; enables load prioritization and automated load shedding; provides vehicle health and diagnostics, DDC officials say.
