CAMARILLO, Calif., 11 Feb. 2013. Cooper Interconnect, a provider of harsh-environment interconnect solutions, has added Dixie Aerospace as a global distributor for aviation ground power products.

Dixie Aerospace will sell Cooper Interconnect's Titan Ground Power 400-hertz (Hz) cables and adapters, as well as Burton Series of 28 volts DC, 270 volts DC, and 400-hertz receptacles, cables, and adapters.

Plugs and adapters, designed to withstand over 2,500 pounds of force and survive impacts from heavy equipment and aircraft;

Field-replaceable adapters, less than 50 percent of the cost of aircraft power cable refurbishments.
