Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces a highly versatile 35 A, 28 V Single Channel Remote Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC) module, offering advanced programmability, power optimization, and system health diagnostic and prognostic data in a compact and reliable module. The RP-20011601S0 programmable remote power controller can be readily configured for a wide range of power requirements, making it ideal for advanced electrical management systems, as demonstrated by its selection for use on the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). These SSPC modules help extend mission range and longevity, minimize inventory requirements, and enable system designers to efficiently add additional power controllers in support of evolving load requirements.
- Power System Flexibility – Maximizes Efficiency
- Enables Incremental Load Modifications to Support Evolving Platform Needs
- Power Optimization & Diagnostic Health Management Improve Mission Range & Longevity
- Programmability Enables a Single Device to be used in a Variety of Applications, Minimizing Inventory
“DDC’s new 35A single channel SSPC module enables system flexibility, so that as power requirements expand additional modules can be easily added without requiring a power system redesign”, stated Steve Rood Goldman, DDC’s Product Line Manager.
Benefits of DDC’s Solid-State Power Controllers (SSPCs)
Smart Power Control
DDC SSPCs enable network control, programmability, and autonomous operation — simplifying vehicle control and freeing crew members’ time, so they can concentrate on mission critical tasks. They also provide controlled rise/fall times, and I2t trip protection, to deliver accurate load protection and flexible power distribution. DDC’s SSPCs also offer flexible control options, including CANbus and RS-485 interfaces, and a range of discrete controls.
Highly efficient, DDC’s SSPCs enable significant SWaP-C savings compared with mechanical switches, breakers, and relays, saving space for other components and expanded functionality. These compact, high density power control solutions enable a 7X power-to-volume and 5X power-to-weight savings, compared with larger mechanical alternatives, enabling reduced space consumption and fuel costs, while extending mission range. Additional SWaP-C savings are realized through a 70% reduction in power dissipation, along with energy savings through intelligent load shedding and prioritization. Inventory costs can be saved, as these boards can be programmed to support multiple platforms and varying mission requirements.
DDC SSPCs have a 25X improved MTBF compared with mechanical switches, breakers, and relays, with moving parts which are more prone to failure. They also provide real-time health and diagnostic data, enabling improved mission uptime, safety and longevity through preventative and automated maintenance. The high reliability of our SSPCs is further ensured by our battle proven technology, with more than 800,000 DDC SSPC nodes installed on military and aerospace systems since 1988.
