BOHEMIA, N.Y. – Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing a 280-Watt power converter to supply 28-volt commercial aviation power for in-flight entertainment and communications (IFEC) electronics.

The power converter also is for USB charging ports for portable electronic devices to as many as 18 aircraft seats.

The 1-14683-R converter's space-saving design enables more comfort and space for passengers by eliminating the need for below-seat boxes, brackets, or shrouds.

This compact unit can be mounted within the cabin wall or ceiling, out of the way of aircraft passengers.

The power converter offers power efficiency of more than 92 percent at a 115-volt DC 400 Hz and maximum load; offers over-current protection; thermal shut-down; short-circuit protection; and an MRO package that includes sidewall mounting, seat loom, and USB sockets.

The power unit "affords aircraft integrators a cost effective means to shorten installation time, while freeing up valuable cabin space for passenger comfort and safety", sats Graham Jefferies, DDC's managing director for DDC Electronics Limited.
