True Blue Power Introduces Two New Converters

New products deliver power to cabin electronics and personal devices, and provide direct replacement for Ameri-King converters

ORLANDO, Fla. — True Blue Power today introduced the company’s new TC120 (DC-to-DC) and TC280 (AC-to-DC) converters. The TC120 features adjustable output voltage, supplying up to 120 watts of 5 to 18-volt power to electronic equipment, including lighting, USB charging ports and cabin accessories. The TC280 converts the aircraft’s 115 VAC power to 28 VDC, delivering 280 watts of 28-volt power to in-seat, cabin and cockpit applications throughout the aircraft.

The True Blue Power TC120 is a direct replacement for Ameri-King converters AK-551-9, AK-551-9M, AK-551-9M1 and AK-551-9M2, following the FAA recommendation to remove Ameri-King products manufactured or shipped after December 28, 2015.

Engineered to power cabin electronics, aircraft equipment and personal electronic devices (PEDs), the new True Blue Power converters offer flexible mounting options in the aircraft floor, wall or ceiling. Both converters are FAA TSO certified and RTCA DO-160G qualified.

The TC120 and TC280 converters join a growing list of True Blue Power products, including inverters, USB charging ports, emergency power supplies, and lithium-ion aircraft batteries.
