Concorde Receives TSO Approval For Eight Aircraft Batteries

Emergency Batteries Never Need Refilling, Self-Regulate Charges

Concorde Battery Corporation told ANN this week it recently received approval under Technical Standard Order C173 by the Federal Aviation Administration for eight valve regulated sealed lead acid (VRSLA) batteries.

The TSO approved models are Concorde’s RG-121 Series and RG-122 Series; Emergency Batteries for lighting, standby, avionics, FADEC and backup power. Parts conforming to TSO C173 are approved for both design and production.

"Aircraft manufacturers can be assured of airworthiness while saving time & money with Concorde’s TSO approved batteries," said John Timmons, Vice President of Engineering. "These Emergency Batteries can be specified for any aircraft installation meeting conditions within the TSO C173 standards."

Concorde states both the RG-121 Series and RG-122 Series are maintenance free, in that they never require replenishment of water or electrolyte. Available with or without internal heaters, all of these batteries are self-regulating on charge, taking only the current required to maintain a full charge. The manufacturer notes RG Series Emergency Batteries protect & extend the life of other avionics without a dedicated charger.

Concorde notes it is the first battery manufacturer to apply for and receive TSO approval. The company is the largest supplier of OEM lead acid aircraft batteries with over 50 additional batteries and temperature sensors that have attained Parts Manufacturing Approval for installation on more than a thousand aircraft models.
