Avionic Instruments (AI²) has been supplying power conversion products since the early 1970’s. For 40 years, Avionic Instruments has maintained a technological edge above and beyond its competition and has been the first choice in power conversion and power processing technology for key aircraft systems; primary backup power, main electrical bus power, electronic warfare and countermeasure protection systems, front-end radar systems, fire control and display systems, and tactical computer server and communication racks.
AI² has developed a power conversion equipment line to offer commercially available Static Inverters, AC-AC Frequency Converters, AC-DC Regulated and Unregulated Transformer Rectifier Units, DC-DC & AC-AC Light Dimming Controllers, Permanent Magnetic Generator Regulators, Bus Sense and Switch products, and Bit Logic Control Relays.
Flite-Tronics Products Flite-Tronics, orginally a California based inverter manufacturer, offers more than 75 models of static inverters and power conversion devices. The entire electronics manufacturing operation was moved to Avenel,NJ in 2006 when Avioni Instruments acquired the product line from sister-division Marathon-Norco. The Flite-Tronics product line production effort continues to be manufactured and supported by Avionic Instruments. Flite-Tronics line of static inverters utilize pulse-width modulation for the generation of the alternating signal and regulation. The output signal is used for both current and voltage sensing circuits to provide the necessary information to the regulating control circuits of the integrated circuit.
Acme Aerospace Inc.
In July 2009 AI² acquired the Acme Aerospace division from Acme Electric Corporation.
Acme Aerospace Inc. has been designing and manufacturing lightweight, high power battery chargers, power supplies and backup power systems since the 1970's. Utilizing advanced switching converter technology; Acme's chargers are commonplace throughout the aerospace market in applications utilizing lead-acid, vented nickel-cadmium, lithium, and fiber nickel-cadmium (FNC) battery technologies. In addition to the advanced power conversion, Acme chargers offer improved levels of battery control for optimum battery operation and life. Acme Aerospace chargers have been OEM selection for the Boeing 777, MD-90, Canadair RJ, Challenger, and Waterbomber, Fokker F50, F70, and F100. In the military market, Acme Chargers have been designed and are in operation on T-45, Apache A, and F-16, F-117 and F18 E/F aircraft.
Acme Aerospace also designs and manufactures Fiber Nickel Cadmium (FNC) batteries for use in commercial and military applications. Acme’s patented sealed FNC batteries form the basis of an advanced power system that has been chosen for such high-profile uses as the Boeing 777, Boeing Apache Longbow Attack Helicopter and numerous space vehicles.
