28V, 16-Channel LRM Solid-State Power Controller!

Bohemia, New York (July 2013) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces a new 16-Channel, Line Replaceable Module (LRM) Solid-State Power Controller. The RP-26231000N1 provides a total continuous current output of 250 amps, and includes 16 channels with 10 amp and 25 amp maximum capacities. The card is packaged in a VITA 48/REDI (Ruggedized Enhanced Design Implementation) compatible form factor that enables cost-effective, two level maintenance (2LM) operations, along with fast and easy field replacement in deployed vehicles, minimizing downtime and service costs.

As the world’s largest supplier of Solid-State Power Controllers (SSPCs), based on more than 500,000 nodes delivered and currently in-use, DDC was the first to offer commercial and fully-qualified MIL-PRF-38534 and Class K Space-level screening for SSPC products. DDC supplies Field-Proven, High-Reliability SSPCs for the Bradley Fighting Vehicles and the M1A2 tank, and is now entering the aerospace market with new light-weight products.

DDC’s SSPCs support real-time digital status reporting and computer control, and are equipped with instant trip, and true I²T wire protection. We offer custom SSPC modules that are rated up to 300 amps continuous, and multi-channel boards that are rated up to 25 amps continuous per channel. Multi-channel boards using this technology are excellent cost effective solutions, as the price per channel is significantly reduced. Included in the SSPC product line are 270Vdc units with current ratings of 2 through 15 amps, 28Vdc units from 1 through 80 amps, and 115Vac units.

Benefits include:

  • 16 Independent Load Channels
  • 10A and 25A Rated Channels with 10:1 Programmability
  • Total Continuous Current Output Capacity of 250 Amps
  • Smart Power Management
    • Network Control
