LAMP & BULB LIFE

What kills most of your bulbs or lamps in an aircraft?  Your startup of the electronics. When you flip the power switch you get a huge inrush of current into the lamps or bulbs until the electron current heats up the filament.  during that heat up time the filament wiggles and wobbles causing  fractures in the filament to start to break.  Then months later you lamp is out and your are back to the avionics shop for a bulb change and a costly repair. 

The TPS-28 eliminates all that cost.  with our soft start circuit, The TPS-28 limits that inrush electron current. Saving you hundreds of dollars and hours of repair time at the avionics shop.

Cost Saving  - operation of an Aircraft

Here is a typical scenario.  You have 28 V and you want to get to 5 Volts @ 6 Amps, so you think "I will use some power resistors or a linear regulator because they are cheap"!!!  You just cost the customer 200 watts of needless power and heat every hour he runs the aircraft. On top of that you may be burning up your aircraft generator. 

What does it cost in fuel? Well if you do the math, 200 watts comes out to be about 1/4 of a horse power to the engine. It does not sound like much but add that fuel cost in and after hours of flying its like adding another person to the aircraft. You have burned up thousands of dollars of fuel. In the long run, those cheap power resistors ended up costing your customer lots of money.  

Here is the answer

What is the difference between a linear regulator and resistors verses the TPS-28? Well, everything in the world. The TPS-28 is a switching power supply  that only takes a small amount of power to get to the 5 Volts or  to whatever voltage you need.  Switching regulators use charging circuits and do not dissipate large amounts of heat to do the power conversion.  Is there any other way of doing low cost power conversion? NO, not unless you can change physics.  The TPS-28 has an efficiency of about 90%. That's 80% better than power resistors or a linear regulator.  The real answer to the question is this:  In a very short time the TPS-28 more than pays for itself just in lower fuel costs..
