Power Converters

IE has designed and developed a range of power conversion and distribution devices for critical and demanding applications in the aerospace industry.

The flagship product of IE range of power converters is a 3-phase Avionic Frequency Converter, designed to support the integration of VF generators to 115VAC@400Hz power distribution buses thanks to an extended input frequency range. Based on highly efficient SiC solid-state technology, it can deliver outstanding power quality and efficiency in a wide temperature range.

The IE Avionic Frequency Converter is a reliable power solution to rotary wings and fixed wings aerospace industry: the equipment key performances are the 3-phase output, 115VAC@400Hz, 3-phase input 115VAC @280-522Hz (MIL-STD-704F), Efficiency > 97% (typ.), Load PF range > 0.7, THD < 3% (overall) and < 1.5% on each phase, -55°C/+71°C temperature operating range, DO160G and MIL-STD-810F compliance.
