NiCad Batteries Out. True Blue Power Lithium-ion Batteries In.
April 19, 2022
WICHITA, Kan. — True Blue Power and DAC International have completed a Part 25 Approved Model List (AML) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the TS60 Emergency Battery Power Supply on more than 13 business jet models. This includes Hawker 750/800/850/900/1000, the Bombardier Challenger 600 Series, and Boeing 737-200 aircraft.
The True Blue Power® TS60 is a direct replacement for Honeywell Grimes power supplies and battery assemblies. It features advanced NanoPhosphate® lithium-ion cell chemistry and saves operators time and money with easier installation and significantly reduced maintenance, only requiring 2-year capacity checks, and a life expectancy of 8 years.
The TS60 utilizes aircraft power to recharge and maintain full capacity. It provides more power than needed to meet the required 20 minutes of emergency lighting run time. The advanced, four-cell configuration offers up to 30 minutes of power and then recharges to full capacity within minutes.
This new Part 25 AML STC adds to the growing number aircraft flying with the TS60. The True Blue Power® Emergency Battery Power Supply was STC approved on the De Havilland DHC-8 Series, including the Q400, in 2018.
