Line Drop Compensators / Gate Box

The FCX Line Drop Compensator (LDC) is designed to cancel out the inductive voltage drop in 400Hz transmission lines. Voltage drop in the cables carrying 400 Hz power is much greater than if the same cable were carrying 60 Hz power. Left uncorrected, the aircraft may reject the power feed due to low voltage. The LDC is connected in series with the cable run to the 400Hz Service Point and improves voltage by cancelling out the voltage drop due to 400Hz AC reactance of the cable. The LDCs are available in ratings with up to 20% compensation capability.
  • Ratings Available - 15 KVA through 180 KVA
  • Efficiency - approximately 99%
