A Lighter Option For Power Management
Mid-Continent Instruments announced
Thursday the addition of the MD50 Static Inverter to its list of
lighter aircraft instruments. Weighing just 3.1 lbs, the MD50 is
smaller than traditional inverters, but with the same connector and
footprint of legacy designs.
The MD50 supplies power for various cabin accessories such as
laptops, cell phones, and iPods. Producing 500 watts of AC power,
the MD50 converts 28 VDC input into 115 VAC, 60 Hz with a true sine
Certified to FAA TSO C73 and RTCA-DO160F environmental
standards, the MD50 Static Inverter features overload and short
circuit protection, remote on/off capability and a self-cooling
system. In addition to high efficiency and improved weight, the
MD50 is supported by Mid-Continent's strong distribution and
customer service program.
"For many years, a limited number of inverter manufacturers have
forced customers to deal with high prices and long lead times,"
said Tom Genovese, Director of Sales. "This changes as the MD50
provides a less expensive option with better availability."
The MD50 Static Inverter is the latest addition to a line of
power management products from Mid-Continent Instruments. Other
products include the MD26 - a classic DC to AC solid-state "peanut"
inverter; the 4300 Series Lifesaver, the only electric attitude
indicator with self-contained battery backup; and, the MD420 and
the new MD800 Series -- a state-of-the-art Lithium Emergency Power
Supply that weighs less, costs less and charges faster.
