The PDU560 is a fully solid-state direct-current power control and monitoring system. The PDU560 can provide control and monitoring of up to 200A of continuous DC current.  The PDU560 is digitally controlled and optionally provides an intelligent load-shed function which includes monitoring of external voltage sources and shuts down outputs in a prioritized manner in order to maintain power to critical loads during periods of reduced input power capacity.

The PDU560 provides current and voltage telemetry as well as power-up and continuous built-in-test functions for continued airworthiness and life cycle monitoring.

The fully solid-state design provides unprecedented fault-isolation and near-instant reaction times to overload and short-circuit fault conditions without issues related to contactor welding and bounce. The PDU560 also allows for high inrush current draw often encountered with highly capacitive loads. The switch architecture provides redundant fault-isolation, in the event an output switch fails and the output is overloaded, the main breaker can also serve to isolate the failure and prevent a system over-current.
