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.
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.
