2- and 4-channel solid-state power controllers for military vehicles introduced by DDC
BOHEMIA, N.Y., 12 Jan. 2015. Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the RP-26321000NX and RP-26311000NX 2- and 4-channel solid-state power controllers for military vehicles and vetronics.
The power electronics devices offer 100 amps per channel high current throughput capability, and low power dissipation in small form factors. These high power density solutions minimize size and cooling requirements, enabling system designers to expand functionality while reducing overall size, weight, and power (SWaP).
These efficient solid-state power controllers enable significant SWaP-C savings compared with mechanical switches, breakers, and relays, saving space for other components and expanded functionality, DDC officials say.
When enclosed, these compact, high density power controllers enable a 7X power-to-volume and 5X power-to-weight savings, compared with larger enclosed mechanical alternatives, enabling reduced space consumption and fuel costs, while extending mission range.
The power controllers also offer a 70 percent reduction in power dissipation, along with energy savings through intelligent load shedding and prioritization.These boards can be programmed to support several platforms and varying mission requirements.
DDC's solid-state power controllers enable network control, programmability, and autonomous operation. They also provide channel paralleling, controlled rise/fall times, and I2t trip protection.
The devices operate over the CANbus interface, and a range of discrete control interfaces. These high power SSPCs allow each channel to be individually programmed within a 4:1 current range, from 25 to 100 amps.
