UltraLite In-Seat Power System
Visit Stand 3B30 to see the Astronics EmPower® USB “UltraLite” System—an innovative passenger In-Seat Power System (ISPS) architecture that provides High Power USB (HPUSB) using zonal power converters. This architecture eliminates the traditional seat-mounted power supply. The result is a system providing lower cost, lower weight, and less impact on the passenger when compared to traditional seat based architectures. Aircraft generated 115VAC power is converted to 28VDC for distribution to the seat groups using zone based DC Power Supplies units. Astronics High Power Outlet Units convert the 28VDC power to 5VDC USB power at 2.1 Amps continuous for the passenger PED.
Wireless Charging Module
The new wireless charging module from Astronics will also be on display at Aircraft Interiors Expo. This innovative product is able to charge passenger PEDs wirelessly and supports a large charging area. The module can be installed in various seat locations and provides up to 15W power per module. This new product meets both Qi and PMA wireless charging standards. The small form factor allows for an easy install.
