Engineers at White Electronic Designs Corp. (formerly Electronic Designs Inc.) of Westborough, Mass., needed power inverters to help provide backlit information displays for use on the battlefield or in other harsh environments.

They found their answer in DC-AC inverters from Endicott Research Group (ERG) Inc. of Endicott, N.Y. ERG`s inverters are compact, shock resistant, and vacuum encapsulated, and are designed for subsystems such as battlefield computer displays, aircraft instrument lighting, and aircraft landing gear lights.

ERG is one of the few manufacturers of vacuum-encapsulated DC-AC inverters that can meet the environmental requirements of battlefield use, company officials say. To do this, company designers use a special encapsulating material that contains a large amount of solid fill. This way there is little contraction or expansion over a temperature range of -55 to 85 degrees Celsius. - J.K.
