The Intelligent Power Stabilizer, IPS, is an electronic power converter for critical electrical equipment found in general aviation aircraft. The IPS system provides aircraft bus voltage surge and sag protection for the connected electrical equipment. The IPS system will operate over an input voltage range from 10 volts to 30 volts and provides a regulated output voltage of 24 volts. The IPS system allows electronic equipment such as engine monitors, EFIS and GPS’s and radios to be operational before and during engine starting. This important feature allows the pilot to load flight plan data into the aircraft GPS prior to starting the engine, thereby saving fuel and operating expense. When used with aircraft engine monitors it ensures the pilot can monitor critical engine operating parameters such as oil pressure during the engine starting process.
The electronic power converter in the IPS system ensures the connected electronic equipment is provided with a stabilized source of power even when the aircraft battery voltage drops significantly. This is particularly important during engine starting or alternator out conditions. IPS additionally provides surge protection by actively clamping the regulated output voltage.
The IPS-24V may also be used as an up converter for electronic equipment requiring 24 volts from a standard 12 volt aircraft power bus. The Intelligent Power Stabilizer system is suitable for use with equipment such as Garmin GNS-430/wa, GNS-530/wa, G900X, G3X systems. Advanced Flight System EFIS, Dynon EFIS, Grand Rapids EFIS, MGL EFIS, Tru-trak Autopilots. The IPS system may also be used for operating 24 volt radios and electronics such as those utilized in the Garmin G900x system and the GNS 430W-A / GNS-530W-A systems in 12 volt aircraft.
