New MIL-STD-704 Revision A Avionics Test Option

New MIL-STD-704 Revision A Avionics Test Option
Revision A Test Standard Option Provides Up to Date Test Sequences for Mil-Std-704, AC Power Compliance Testing for Defense Avionics

Irvine, California, October 2014 -- Pacific Power Source announces the release of its latest suite of test routines specifically designed to test AC products for compliance with Department of Defense Interface Standard Mil-Std-704, “Aircraft Electric Power Characteristics”. This new software option expands Pacific Power Source Inc.’s growing portfolio of Avionics Compliance Test options.

The new Mil-Std-704 test standard applies to all military aircraft, both fixed wing and rotary. Revision A is an older version of this test requirement that still applies to much of the avionics equipment in use today.  Pacific Power already offered these tests for later version all the way to the current revision F.  Revision A however is more stringent in several aspects and covers fixed 400Hz AC power and 28V DC power.

Available as an integrated option package running inside the Pacific Power Source UPC Studio Windows control program, the Pacific Power Source Inc. MIL-STD-704A option includes the revision A test sequences for all AC and DC power groups.  Detailed test reports in Rich Text Format are generated automatically at the end of each test run.  Included test report templates can be customized with the End-users Logo’s and company name as needed.

As an integral part of the UPC Studio software, the MIL-STD-704F test option is available for both the Linear AMX Series AC Power Sources - which offers superior performance - as well as the Switching ASX Series AC Power Sources - which offers compact size.  For very high power avionics testing requirements, the 3060-MS Series AC Power source provides the required high current capability.

“We are pleased to offer this additional test capability to both new and existing customers of Pacific Power Source products.  This new addition to our Avionics Test offerings allows our customers to get additional use and value from their AC Power Source investment and saves them a considerable amount of setup and programming time when performing these compliance tests.” according to Herman van Eijkelenburg, Director of Marketing for Pacific Power Source.

Target customers for this new MIL-STD-704A test option are EMC Test Labs involved with defense avionics product certification and testing.  Also, manufacturers of AC powered avionics equipment that need to certify their products to this MIL standard can use this option to check for compliance during early stages of product development.
