Space missions and applications




APCON has the experience of over 25 years and the resources to design the best custom power supplies for space applications.

We provide complete power supply solutions with low risk and low non-recurring costs. We have successfully designed a number of power supplies with a wide range of requirements.

The APCON multiple output power supplies with high-density technology provide options for e.g.
- reverse polarity protection,
- on/off control,
- undervoltage lockout,
- integrated power bus distribution and
- programmable internal house keeping
- with command interfaces for data exchange.

APCON power supplies include different input space bus voltage ranges such as 18V-DC and 60V-DC and an inrush current limiter for different bus applications. Typical output voltages are available from 2.5V-DC to 37V-DC and output power capability up to 500 watts.
