FCA-180 Frequency Converter

Product Description

Frequency converters of the FCA series are designed to supply aircrafts during preflight maintenance at the airport. They can also be used as a power unit of test benches, hangars and aircraft manufacturing plants.

The FCA-180 is a stationary frequency converter that is intended to supply all types of aircrafts with 400 Hz frequency and 3 x 115/200 VAC voltage and output power up to 180 kVA

FCA converters provide:

  • High quality of output three-phase sinusoidal voltage with frequency  400 Hz
  • High efficiency coefficient
  • Low power consumption

Main characteristics:

  • Total harmonic content not more 2.0 %
  • 24/7 operating mode at 180 kVA
  • Brand new schematics and technical solutions
  • TFT display
  • Suitable for all types of commercial jets
  • High level of reliability
  • Low noise level
  • Possibility of modification/adjustment in accordance to the Customer’s needs
  • Heavy duty design

Can be manufactured in mobile, stationary and aerobridge versions as well as manufactured in both a standard complete set or according to customer’s special requirements and adjustments.
