July 25, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
Data Device Corporation (DDC) has introduced a 32-channel, light-weight solid-state power controller. The RP-2032151XD0 provides a total continuous current output capacity of 120A at 28 Vdc in a 1.4-kg box, along with a high channel count and advanced programmability.

The RP-2032 product family offers users significant size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) savings in addition to improved reliability and smart power control.
DDC was the first to offer commercial and fully-qualified MIL-PRF-38534 and Class K Space-level screening for SSPC (solid-state power controller) products; DDC’s SSPCs support real-time digital status reporting and computer control, and are equipped with instant trip, and true I²T wire protection. SSPC modules are rated up to 300A continuous, and multi-channel boards are rated up to 25A continuous per channel. Multi-channel boards using this technology are cost effective solutions, as the price per channel is reduced. Included in the SSPC product line are 270 Vdc units with current ratings of 2 to 15A, 28 Vdc units from 1 to 80A, and 115 Vac units.
