Crane Aerospace & Electronics announced the introduction of a space grade DC-DC converter family. The SMHF42 is a family of fully isolated, 15 W products with a range of single and dual outputs, operating over an input voltage range of 35 to 55 volts with 80 volt transient protection. They are available in Class H and Class K versions (per MIL-PRF 38534) with radiation tolerance of L (50 krad(Si)) and R (100 krad(Si)).
Crane Aerospace & Electronics announces a K-Band 2-way device, which expands their Iso-Divider product line for space applications. Crane’s K-Band 2-way Iso-Divider features similar outstanding performance as previously introduced Ku-Band 2-, 4- and 8-way products, including exceptionally low insertion loss and optimum band flatness performance. Other features include small size, low weight and high reliability, crucial for space applications.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co., has been selected by Parker Aerospace to supply its ELDEC® Auto-Transformer Rectifier Unit (ATRU) to provide reliable power conversion for the COMAC C919 Horizontal Stabilizer Motor Control Electronics (MCE).
Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solutions continues to expand the Ku-Band Iso-Divider product family with the introduction of an 8-way unit. Featuring similar qualities as the previously introduced 4- and 2-way products, exceptional insertion loss and band flatness performance is continued in this product. The Iso-Divider combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics introduces its Interpoint® MFX Series™ 50 W DC-DC converter. The newly designed MFX Series provides up to 50 W in a 0.92 cubic inch case with efficiency over 90%. The input voltage of 16 to 50 volts can also withstand transients of 80 volts for one second, has ±10% trimmable 3.3 and 5 volt outputs and operates at -55°C to +125°C.
Crane’s proven sensor and switch family are used on multiple applications, including landing gear, doors, secondary flight controls and thrust reversers. Crane’s sensors have recently been chosen for several engine nacelle applications, including fan cowl latch and thrust reverser sensing for Trent XWB, LEAP-1A and PurePower 1100 G engines for A350 XWB and A320 neo aircraft, respectively.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solutions announced the re-launched microwave space qualified products (MSQP) product line. This line offers a range of standard passive products including power dividers, hybrids, couplers and mixers. These products have been previously qualified to internally generated standards derived from industry standards.
