Viable Power Conversion Technologies specialises in providing custom-designed high reliability power conversion solutions for the defence, naval and airforce sectors.
The company has more than 25 years worth of experience providing high-quality ruggedised custom AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC power supplies and power system accessories.
We specialise in addressing our customers’ specific needs, whether that be a particular packaging constraint, performance characteristic or application environment, or a combination of all three.
Power converter modules for airforce applications
Viable Power’s design process starts with using industry standard power converter modules from a broad range of renowned manufacturers and developing a custom power supply solution that addresses all our customer requirements.
The company performs rigorous quality inspections during the manufacturing phase, followed by a series of performance tests including thermal cycling and vibration. This allows us to deliver a quality product that will perform for many years.
Our 7,500ft² facility features production equipment including wave solder and printed circuit board washing machinery, wire cutting, stripping and crimping machines and electronic microscope inspection tools.
In addition, our Automated Test Equipment (ATE) allows us to test a power supply unit with up to 8 output channels. We can perform onsite vibration testing with our electrodynamic vibration system and environmental testing with our high ramp rate temperature cycling and humidity test chambers.
Custom AC-DC power supply units
Viable Power has extensive experience designing custom AC-DC power supplies for airborne, naval and ground defense applications, with power capabilities ranging from 20W to multiple KW.
We design AC-DC power supplies operating from three phase 115V, 400Hz sources and from single phase 115V, 60Hz sources. All units produced by Viable meet the input requirement of MIL-STD-704 or RTCA DO-160 for airborne and MIL-STD-1399 for shipboard.
Our AC-DC power supplies include custom or standard EMI filters, rectifiers, and power factor correction units with high input voltage DC-DC modules from well-known manufacturers. We can custom design and package solutions to meet the unique demands of the airforce industry.
Custom DC power supply units for defence forces
Viable Power designs custom DC-DC power supply units with power capabilities from 5W to over 2KW. Our DC-DC power supplies normally operate from 28V sources, but we can also design for 48V, 72V and 270V input voltages for airforce applications.
We include a custom designed or standard EMI filter module in our DC-DC units. Other input circuitry may include inrush current limiting, reverse polarity protection and bulk internal capacitance. Uniquely packaged and designed to meet our customer requirements, our DC-DC power supplies can withstand temperature, altitude and vibration.
Viable Power’s custom DC-DC power supplies are designed to meet the input requirements of MIL-STD-1275 for ground vehicles, MIL-STD-704 or RTCA DO-160 for airborne, or any other requirement for any application.
Power supply designs for airforce applications
Viable can cater to a wide range of client requirements, whether that be the need for a particular performance characteristic, application environment, or packaging constraint.
We provide rapid turnaround, custom-designed high reliability power conversion solutions for the aerospace, naval and ground defense military sectors.
All our custom power supplies are designed to meet specific requirements from multiple standards such as MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD 1399 Section 300, MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-461, RTCA-DO-160, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-HDBK-217F N2.
