Astronics Advanced Electronic Systems (AES), has contracted with three business aircraft OEMs to supply its new EmPOWER System, which supports USB capability. The EmPOWER System will be installed on numerous aircraft models. The selection was based on the system’s ability to support multiple passengers with a mix of AC and USB power. The inherent safety features of the EmPOWER 28VDC to 115VAC System and the dual use AC/USB Outlet provides a clean and easy installation to support the power needs of passengers and crew. The flexibility of a combined AC/USB outlet is designed to conserve valuable cabin space and to provide passengers with two power availability options at each seat location. Should customers desire, separate AC and USB outlets can be installed.
