True Blue Power Unveils USB chargers, AC/DC Converters for CRJ-550s

STC Provides 100W Charging to 53 Passenger Seats on Regional Jets

Regional jet carriers have a new option to revamp their passenger experience now that True Blue Power has obtained a Supplemental Type Certificate for the installation of both its  TC2000 AC-to-DC Voltage Converters and MAX Power TA360 USB Chargers on the Bombardier CRJ-550.

The USB chargers provide seats, galleys, and cockpits with up to 100 watts per port, enough power to charge the full gamut of personal electronic devices throughout any flight. The TA360 USB charger series supports both types of common USB charging ports, with old-school, rectangular USB-A and newfangled USB Type C. Type C meets the spec for Power Delivery, providing device-driven voltage output for trouble-free charging. 

The STC was granted to U.S. Technical Consultants Inc, which installs a pair of True Blue Power TC2000 voltage converters to provide power to 53 MAX Power TA360 USB Chargers throughout the aircraft. The converters are, according to True Blue,  "ideal for aircraft with AC electrical systems requiring 28-volt DC power. Their converter provides "2,000 watts of DC power to in-flight entertainment systems, interior/exterior lighting, and in-seat, cabin, galley and cockpit USB power."

“This USB-power solution is currently flying on more than 50 CRJ-550s, operated here in the U.S.,” said Tom Genovese, Director of Commercial Transport and Defense for True Blue Power. “Our certified products are durable, reliable, and provide a 40 to 50 percent weight savings, compared to alternative AC power solutions. Even better, the True Blue Power USB chargers installed on the CRJ-550 provide passengers with 60 watts of ultra-fast charging, USB-C PD convenience power at every seat.”
