Overview

The Bycan PS -28100 is the latest to join the family of power supplies and battery chargers for commercial aircraft servicing. This model was designed for Pilatus aircraft which require a maximum output of 29Vdc into the aircraft avionics. This equipment will provide the amps needed for gear retraction tests as well as the filtered power for all types of avionics service. The PS-28100 will furnish up to 100 amps at 28 VDC. It plugs into the APU connector on the engine cowling and automatically disconnects the battery so that it will not be drained by the servicing processes. A valuable ramp accessory. The other units in the Bycan family of aircraft power supplies and battery chargers include the PS-2850, 28 volt, 50 amps this unit comes also with battery charging capability. Another model is the RB-14/28-25 (AKA, the Red Baron) dual DC output voltage14 or 28 volt, 25 amps. All APU models have a filtered DC output voltage to eliminate humming noise.

Reviews

While it is still early on, Im not pleased with this power supply. The manufacturer overview indicates that it will maintain 28VDC at 100 amps but it does not. When we called to question why the voltage was down to 22VDC, the person we talked to said, well of course it comes down when there is a load. 22 VDC is a long ways from maintaining 28VDC while producing 100 amps. Im not pleased that there is no amp meter to know how many amps are being asked from this power unit. We will likely send it back and seek out another. The reason I gave it 2 stars is that it appears to be producing plenty of amps.

Q&A

Q: I have a 64' B55 Baron, that has standard plug on the outboard side of the left engine nacelle. The electrical system is 28 volt (2 14volt batteries connected). I'm needing a solution for working and testing some avionics on the ground with engines off. Would the Bycan Power System, PS-28100 be a good solution?

Yes, the PS-28100/1 (11-07822: BYCAN POWER SUPPLY 28V STND) will be the best choice for your Beechcraft.

Q: Can the PS-28100ECL (P/N 11-07825) for the Eclipse E-500 be run 115 volts?

Yes, it can be run at 115 volts.

Q: The description says it runs off 120/208/220/240 VAC 60hz power. What type of plug does it have for connecting to the wall outlet?

This has a regular 110V - 3 prong wall outlet plug.

Q: I have a power hungry Citation CJ4. Will this work to power the avionics to update the charts? Would I need a 220V version?

Per Supplier: 120VAC or 220VAC version doesn't matter in terms of power, some people order units of 220VAC because that is the outlets that they have. This is unit of 100 amps and as long as they don't exceed that, it's okay.

Q: Aerostar PA602P. Will this unit MAINTAIN 28volts while supplying 70amps on the ground?

No this will not maintain 28volts as once amps are drawn the voltage will decrease. It will drop down to about 25volts when applying 100amps.

Q: Specifications page says 100a at 28v, but I see that on the Aerostar Q&A you said 25 volts at 70 amps. So is the specifications page lying?

Once there is a draw on the unit the voltage will drop. Its peak performance is 28v and 100amps but it will drop when its put under a load.
