AIRBORNE FREQUENCY CONVERTER

AFC-7000-1-(50, -60 or -400)

AFC-7000-2-(50, -60 or -400)

Behlman's AFC-7000 is a ruggedly built, modified COTS frequency converter designed to convert three-phase aircraft power to regulated single-phase (115 or 230 VAC) 60 Hz ground power.

The AFC-7000 is ruggedly built to support aircraft takeoffs and landings and designed to meet the input power requirements of MIL-STD-704 and RTCA-DO-160.

In the AFC-7000 you'll find the quality features you expect from Behlman. Low output THD, high efficiency, plus excellent line and load regulation.

There's also a unique overload protection system that folds back voltage to maintain rated current without output waveform distortion. Units are supplied with RS-232 remote control and 28 VDC control of Output On/Off. In addition the unit has provisions for slide mounting.

Small size, rugged construction, quiet operation and high efficiency make the AFC-7000 ideal for use on aircraft to convert aircraft power to ground power.

PROTECTIVE CIRCUITS

Input Protection:
Fast-acting main circuit breaker with guard
Thermal Protection:
Internal temperature sensor prevents heat damage
Constant Current Mode:
Overload automatically causes voltage foldback to provide maximum current without distorting output waveform
Short Circuit Protection:
Short circuit overload electronically latches output open to protect load. Power restored by recycling circuit breaker
