DDC: cost and space saving 280W IFEC & PED aircraft power solution

Data Device Corporation introduces a new 280W converter to supply 28V power for IFEC electronics and USB charging ports for Portable Electronic Devices (PED), to up to 18 aircraft seats, with a compact, high output, and cost-effective solution that delivers power efficiency performance > 92%  (power factor > 0.95) at 115VAC 400Hz and max load. Additional features are over-current protection, thermal shut-down and short-circuit protection.

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, as this compact unit can be conveniently mounted within the cabin wall or ceiling. A complete seat MRO package is available, including sidewall mounting, seat loom and USB sockets.
