s t a t i c inver te rs
AI2 Static Inverters are supplied at power levels ranging from 20VA single phase to 37.5kVA three phase. Light weight, small size and high reliability are achieved with the use of high frequency switching circuitry. Inverters are designed to operate in the most stringent environments. Units are qualified to meet FAA and military standards for mission critical equipment. Applications range from large-scale commercial air transpo rt, corporate and private aircraft to ground mobile shelters and forward area military back-up power.

Inverters use a two-stage power conversion topology that provides superior regulation of the output voltage over wide input line variations.A high frequency switching DC/DC converter isolates and scales the input 28 VDC voltage to a high voltage internal DC bus. Power is transferred to a high frequency DC/AC bridge inverter circuit to generate an output of 115VAC or 230VAC at 50, 60 or 400Hz. Current mode control provides for stable operation into any load, including the non-linear and dynamic loads seen in critical applications.

AI2 static inverters can be connec ted in parallel or thr e phase for higher power ratings. e The control topology ensures proportional current sharing without the need fo r output voltage matching. Fas t output response and stable fe edback loops provide for a design with high reliability, low weight and high efficiency.

AI2 Power Supplies are designed for military and commercial airborne, shipboard, mobile and ground fixed applications. Standard products convert AC or DC to various DC outputs, ranging from 5VDC to 48VDC. Product designs operate in the most stringent environments and are qualified to military standards for mission critical equipment.

A single stage current controlled resonant processor isolates the input AC or DC to a regulated output DC voltage with extremely low ripple. Fast output response and stable feedback loops provide for a design of high power density, low weight and high efficiency. Power supplies are modular and can be operated in parallel,with n+1 redundancy for distributed power applications.

The Power Supply family consists of two principal groups, 50-150 watts and 200-400 watts. Available inputs are 115/230VAC single phase, 115/200VAC three phase WYE, 115 VAC L-L Delta, and 28, 48 and 270VDC. AC input models ope rate over a frequency range of 47440Hz.
