Ultralite Aircraft USB Power System
UltraLite USB In-Seat Power System
Astronics EmPower® USB UltraLite System is an innovative passenger In-Seat Power System (ISPS) architecture which provides up to thirty (per power supply) High Power USB (HPUSB) passenger outlet units using remotely located zonal power supplies. This revolutionary architecture eliminates the traditional seat-mounted power supply resulting in a lower cost, lower weight system with less impact on the passenger foot and storage space when compared to traditional seat-based architectures.
Seat suppliers applaud the simplistic installation process as only outlet units are installed at the seat. This approach provides a level of installation flexibility and reduces overall seat weight.
Passengers enjoy the available and reliable power they need to charge and use their electronics devices during flight.
Astronics: EmPowering the passenger experience
115VAC wide frequency aircraft power is converted to 28VDC for distribution to multiple seat groups which is converted to 5VDC USB power at 2.1 Amps by the active intelligent outlet unit to power passenger's personal entertainment devices.
