Have two of these in two helicopters powering radar altimeters. Since 2009 have never had a unit failure. One ship it powers 28 V LED Nav lighting, even a short in the tail LED wiring did not damage unit. Very impressed.
Easy to install and verify operation - via the onboard LED light.
Worked for 1 month
