SUREPAC compressor offers precise variable control for optimal performance and extended life
Orchard Park, New York: Cobham introduces SUREPACTM,
its new pure air compressor system, to the military aviation
community at the Farnborough International Air Show 2016 (Hall 4,
Stand G68). SUREPAC is a smart, fully upgradeable compressor system
that dynamically manages power to achieve high reliability and
efficiency in weapons ejection and other applications requiring
high pressure, pure air generation.
Cobham's smart compressor system offers significantly reduced
life cycle and maintenance costs over other high pressure cold gas
generators and compressors through the use of a proprietary
algorithm contained within the Smart Electronic Control Unit
(SmartECUTM). The SmartECU monitors actual compressor
usage and maximizes filter life by ensuring they are changed only
when needed. Also, through precise variable control of the
compressor speed, the system draws less power and runs cooler for
optimized performance and extended compressor life. Modularly
designed for ease of integration and reconfiguration, the SUREPAC
is fully upgradeable to 270 V DC power requirements with a simple
swap out of the SmartECU.
"Developing this technology is part of Cobham's strategy to
provide full spectrum weapons carriage and release offerings and
compliments our pneumatic bomb racks and ejection valves already in
the marketplace,"said Tim Sopko, Vice President & General
Manager of Cobham Mission Systems's Orchard Park facility.
"With this newly developed technology, Cobham now offers complete
weapons carriage, ejection, launch and control solutions that can
be tailored to customer specific demanding requirements."
Cobham high performance compressor technology can be found
in products used in pneumatically actuated weapons carriage
and release systems and other applications including our
electronics cooling and personal microclimate cooling systems.
