Product Information

Product Information

The PS100 is a solid state hand-portable power supply delivering a maximum of 100A at a pre-set voltage of 28V DC for avionics use. The unit can be connected directly to the aircraft’s external ground power receptacle and is primarily for operators of large DC business jets requiring a source of clean stable DC power for flight deck power and software updates.

The front-mounted quick- disconnect output connector enables this unit to be used as a free- standing portable bench-mounted power supply when used with optional lead sets or alligator clips.

Used by civil and military operators, the PS100 is a standard product approved and offered by one of the leading US business jet manufacturers under their part number. An optional bandolier is available with a full set of adaptors/mains plugs, allowing instant connection to a mains supply anywhere in the world without the need to locate and wire a local plug.

The PS100 is fitted with two 50A power supplies connected in parallel complete with blocking diodes to prevent the highly undesirable reverse battery outrush current that can occur on connection to the aircraft causing arcing at the external aircraft power socket. Power supply healthy LEDs are fitted to the front panel for diagnostics.

Automatic input voltage selection 90–264V AC / 47–63Hz allows international use. A solid state voltmeter and ammeter displays the output voltage and current, enabling operators to monitor the current draw of avionics and other pre-flight loads. Supplied with Nato lead set, input lead and heavy-duty canvas protective jacket.
