The Remote Control Circuit Breakers (RCCB) concept, as load controllers in distributed load applications, provides for a more efficient power distribution system with less line loss at a lower cost and with less weight than the conventional relay-flight deck circuit protector method.
Qualified to demanding performance parameters of MIL- PRF-83383 standard.
- Use as a Relay, Circuit Breaker, Or Both
RCCBs combine the best attributes of a circuit breaker and a relay. Automatically protects the wires and the load device during circuit/load breakdown, but allows the flight deck control of the load during normal operation.
- Weight and Cost Savings
In distributed-load applications, RCCBs are a more efficient power distribution solution promoting cost and weight savings through the elimination of long runs of heavy cables associated with the conventional relay-flight deck circuit protector method. Control of the RCCB requires only one #22 AWG control wire from the ICU on the flight deck to the RCCB.
- Cockpit Space Savings
An RCCB system removes the presence of large circuit breakers from the cockpit while permitting remote On/Off operation from the flight deck. Combine Safran Power USA RCCB
with Indicator Control Unit (ICU) model #1500-052-05.
