Military power regulator helps protect sensitive electronics from power surges and spikes

IRWINDALE, Calif., 28 April 2009. Falcon Electric Inc. in Irwindale, Calif., is introducing a solid-state voltage regulator (SVR) called the SVR Pro to protect power-sensitive equipment involved in military computing, military communications, and other defense and aerospace applications.

IRWINDALE, Calif., 28 April 2009. Falcon Electric Inc. in Irwindale, Calif., is introducing a solid-state voltage regulator (SVR) called the SVR Pro to protect power-sensitive equipment involved in military computing, military communications, and other defense and aerospace applications.

The military power voltage regulator comes in a rackmount/tower design that continuously regenerates clean AC power, and handles power disturbances that can wreak havoc with military electronics. The SVR Pro 1.5-, 2.2-, and 3 kilovolt-ampere COTS units deliver regulated power in a 31-pound package.

The SVR Pro is its active electronic design that protects against generator frequency shifts, surges, sags, and extended brownouts, removes power pollution, and assures a pure sinewave output with plus-or-minus 2 percent voltage regulation.

These units have an input voltage window from 80 to 138 volts AC, as well as a .97 input power factor correction (PFC) circuit that reduces input current and harmonics. The SVR Pro with microprocessor technology also has a liquid crystal display that provides line, load status, and operating parameters.
