True Blue Power Lithium-Ion Battery Powers Bell 505 Jet Ranger X

Advanced Technology Systems Also Powered By The Battery

The TB17 (17 amp-hour) lithium-ion engine-start battery will power the new Bell Helicopter 505 Jet Ranger X, True Blue power has announced at Heli-Expo.

"The advanced technology on the Bell 505-especially its innovative Turbomeca Arrius 2R engine-relies on a high-power, low-maintenance battery that is ideal for rugged environments. This includes extreme low and high-temperature conditions," said Rick Slater, True Blue Power Division Manager. "Our lithium-ion battery delivers that and more."

The TB17 battery utilizes proprietary Nanophosphate lithium-ion cell chemistry to provide unmatched power, energy, safety and life. Weighing less than 16 pounds, the TB17 offers 45 percent weight savings, increased payload, and 60 to 90 percent reduced maintenance cost when compared to lead-acid and nickel-cadmium alternatives. In addition to advanced chemistry, the intelligent battery system is engineered with several layers of protection and communicates real-time battery status to the pilot.

"This aircraft was designed with our customers in mind," said Lashan Bonaparte, Bell Helicopter, 505 Program Manager. "They continually provide us with invaluable insight about how we can improve our products and what they need for their missions so that we can, in-turn, deliver a product that offers the best combination of value, performance, safety and support that our customers have come to expect from Bell Helicopter."

Bell's latest addition to the short light single (SLS) category is the first in its class to feature a fully integrated glass flight deck built around the Garmin G1000H Integrated Avionics Suite. With entry into service expected this year, the Bell 505 has a solid backlog of approximately 350 units and continues to attract attention from potential customers due to its advanced technology and sleek, modern design.

Operating within an AS 9100C certified facility, True Blue Power specializes in the custom design and manufacturing of next-generation power solutions for the global aviation industry. It is the first company in the world to achieve FAA TSO and EASA ETSO certifications for three sophisticated lithium-ion battery products:  the TB17 and TB44 (46 amp-hour) Advanced Lithium-ion Batteries, and the TS835 Lithium-ion Emergency Power Supply.
