Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics and True Blue Power Present AEA19!

Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics and True Blue Power
AEA 2019 Booth #625

True Blue Power Introduces Fifth-Generation Battery Family

The leading manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries introduced its new fifth-generation, main ship batteries during this year’s AEA International Convention and Trade Show. The ultra-lightweight, TB20 (20 amp-hour), TB30 (30 amp-hour) and TB40 (40 amp-hour) are True Blue Power’s first batteries that are on condition and maintenance free.

The TB20/30/40 are the only lithium-ion batteries that can be programmed to meet the needs of each specific aircraft, including charge current limit, end-of-life capacity, minimum dispatch capacity and engine-start readiness.

The new battery systems communicate accurate and reliable real-time state-of-charge and state-of-health data. The Built-in Test Indicator (BIT) does not require any external test equipment, load banks or auxiliary power.


The new TB20/30/40 weigh up to 60 percent less and deliver more amp hours per pound than alternative Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) and lead-acid batteries. 

These intelligent, long-life batteries eliminate the challenges of heavy NiCad and lead-acid batteries. Advanced lithium-ion technology means no more toxic metals or acid spills and is much safer for the environment.

The TB20, TB30 and TB40 Advanced Lithium-ion Batteries will be on display in the True Blue Power booth #625 throughout the AEA International Convention and Trade Show, March 25 – 28 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, California. 



 Charge Faster and Stay Connected Longer!

Introducing the new High-Power Digital Clock / USB Charger from Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics

The high-power MD93H Digital Clock / USB Charger delivers 3 amps of power per port to simultaneously charge electronic flight bags, cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices at full power. The unit’s compact, 2-inch design allows it to conveniently fit in any standard panel cutout.

The six-digit, seven-segment LED clock provides easy operation with five modes: Local Time, UTC/Zulu Time, Countdown Timer and Stopwatch. An internal battery, with a life expectancy of more than 10 years, maintains time and flight timer memory when not powered by the aircraft. Additional features include external lighting control and built-in photocell for automatic dimming. The MD93H protects itself and the charging device from short circuit, power surges and over-current potential.

The MD93H Digital Clock / USB Charger will be on display in the Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics booth #625 throughout the AEA International Convention and Trade Show, March 25 – 28 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, California.


Need an easy to install and maintain Emergency Cabin Lighting Power Supply?

Introducing the new TS60 Series Emergency Battery Power Supply

True Blue Power’s new emergency cabin lighting power supply provides constant 6.6 VDC power to emergency lighting systems in the event of electrical system failure. Engineered to offer distinct advantages over nickel-cadmium (NiCad) alternatives, the hermetically-sealed, non-venting TS60 is the first lithium-ion battery to meet new, rigorous Technical Standard Order (TSO) C179b requirements.

The emergency battery power supply is designed to utilize the aircraft’s power to recharge, or maintain existing charge, at full capacity. The TS60 contains significantly more power than needed to meet the required 20 minutes of emergency lighting run time. The four-cell configuration can support up to 30 minutes of power and the six-cell configuration provides power for more than 40 minutes.

“The TS60 is designed to be easily installed and deliver valuable operational, financial and safety benefits,” said Tom Genovese, Director of Commercial Airline Sales for True Blue Power. “As a drop-in replacement for the Dash 8’s older, maintenance-intensive Honeywell Grimes power supplies and battery assemblies, no additional equipment, changes to wiring or updates to the flight crew procedures are needed.”

Benefits of the TS60 Series Emergency Cabin Lighting Power Supply include:

  • Drop-in replacement for Honeywell Grimes power supplies and battery assemblies

- 60-3844-X Power Supply / 61-0478-X Battery Assembly

- 60-5025-1 Power Supply / 61-3800-1 Battery Packs

- 60-1321-1 Power Supply / 61-0478-9 Battery Assembly    

  • Cut removal and replacement time in half
     
  • Reduce maintenance cost
     
  • Significantly improve capacity checks

The TS60 Series Emergency Battery Power Supply will be on display in the True Blue Power booth #625 throughout the AEA International Convention and Trade Show, March 25 – 28 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, California.
