DRS Pivotal Power’s 1500W DC/DC power conditioner is designed to operate from the vehicle’s 28VDC bus to provide clean and stable 28VDC output power to downstream equipment. In particular, the DC/DC power conditioner is designed to isolate the connected equipment from transients, spikes and surges as established in MIL-STD-1275D.
The DC/DC power conditioner currently provides a current limited power output of approximately 1500W. The converter has a factory adjustable input current limit that can be increased to allow up to 1750W of output power. The power conditioner also acts as a UPS, using super capacitors to provide a minimum of 20 seconds of holdup at 1140W. The super capacitors used have a maintenance-free lifespan of 10 years, minimizing the ILS support and maintenance typically required with lead acid batteries.
