UltraLite USB In-Seat Power System

Powerful · Intelligent · Flexible

The Industry’s Most Powerful and Intelligent Passenger Portable Electronic Device (PED) Power Solution

EmPower LogoThe EmPower® UltraLite USB Power System from Astronics is an innovative aircraft 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 high 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.

The newest addition to the UltraLite line, the UltraLite G2, adds increased power capacity and intelligent power management in an even smaller form-factor.
