Frequency Converters 400Hz and Combination 400Hz 28V DC
At Red Box Aviation we have over 20 years of experience in the aviation industry and, not only do we provide Ground Power Units (GPUs), we also offer Mobile and Static Frequency Converters (SFCs), and combination units 400Hz too. All of our products are certified by the TUV SUD product service Laboratory in the UK.
We offer SFC’s ranging in power from 30KVA to 120KVA, with our most popular being the 60KVA and 90KVA options, although larger bespoke power supplies are available.
What is a Frequency Converter?: Simply put, it is a device that is able to convert power. It coverts a basic fixed-frequency to a variable-frequency, variable-voltage output, which is then used to control the speed of induction motors.
Some of the benefits of SFC’s include;
- No need to use a separate controller, as they can control temperatures, pressure or flows without one.
- Lower maintenance costs
- Water hammer problems are eliminated
- Driven equipment that is unable to tolerate excessive torque can be protected
- No need for throttling vales and dampers
Please note that solid state frequency converters are sensitive to temperature and humid environments, which means that they require air conditioning, whilst their typical lifetime is around 10 years of continual service.
