Ground Vehicle Power Supplies

Types of Ground Vehicle Power Supplies

In the most demanding military applications, reliable power is a necessity. Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) specializes in sophisticated technical solutions that can handle the input requirements defined by MIL-STD-1275, hence calling it a MIL-STD-1275 power supply. With more than 30 years of expertise, we are the first choice of military contractors and high end industrial manufacturers across the country.

MIL-STD-1275 Power Supply Requirements

MIL-STD-1275 is the published standard pertaining to the input voltage requirements for ground vehicle electronics (Vetronics) which results in specific ground vehicle power supplies. Military ground vehicles use a nominal 28 VDC power supply. A large portion of the standard deals with requirements for handling transient spikes and surges — important considerations for any power supply used to run critical navigation systems, radio communications, and other equipment in military applications.

According to MIL-STD-1275, ground vehicle power supplies must be able to handle:

  • Transient spikes of up to ±250 V for 50 µs with durations no longer than 1 ms with maximum energy of 15 mJ
  • Surges of 100 VDC for 50 ms from a 0.5 ? impedance source repeated five times per second

For more information and detailed technical requirements for MIL-STD-1275 power supply standards, contact ACT and speak with one of our engineers directly.
