    FCX Systems Inc., a worldwide leader in solid-state 400Hz technology since 1987, continues to provide customers with state-of-the-art technology to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. FCX Engineers have designed an economical, compact 312KVA solid-state frequency converter intended for direct genset replacement or which might be utilized in compact settings. This high performance unit is indoor rated, constructed to operate under the most extreme situations. The unit requires minimal space while offering easy front and rear access to the unit for simple servicing. FCX has achieved high performance and increased reliability by using laminated bus integrated inverter modules. The performance characteristics are enhanced by micro-processor controllers with field programmable logic. This advanced design has long made the FCX converter the top converter in the world.

    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.

  • FCX SYSTEMS PRE-CONDITIONED AIR UNITS

    FCX sells Point-of-Use (DX) and Air Handler (Central Systems) units from 20- to 150-tons, designed for maximum efficiency, reliability and ease of maintenance in any airport, airline or military application.

    In February of 2012, FCX partnered with Twist Inc. in Ohio for the production and manufacturing of our PCAir product line. Through this collaboration, FCX provides customers with comprehensive package of ground support product lines that include Power, PCAIR and Hose Management (BOOMAIR) systems.

    All units are equipped with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to reduce blower speeds for substantial energy savings. The units are designed with optimal coil and compressor circuitry, which aids in lowering operating costs as well.

    Removable side panels allow interior access to the unit for easy maintenance. This feature averts the removal of the PCA unit from the boarding bridge for any maintenance activities, which results in a significant cost savings for long-term upkeep.

    Strategically placed vents offer industry-leading noise reduction.

    All units use R410-A refrigerant, widely considered to be the most environmentally friendly and efficient throughout the industry.
