Types of Aerospace & Military Aircraft Power Supplies
Aerospace equipment and military aircraft need to be engineered to the highest standards possible. Power supplies that run precise radar and navigation equipment must be reliable and consistent under any operating condition. At the same time, however, contractors need to keep costs in check.
An aerospace power supply doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) is a leading supplier of MIL-STD-704 AC-DC as well as DC-DC converters and other products for aircraft and aerospace manufacturers. Let us help you assess your needs and select the right power supply system for you based on the revision level of the standard you need.
What Is MIL-STD-704?
MIL-STD-704 is a military standard that sets acceptable characteristics for aircraft electric power provided to the input terminals of equipment used in aircraft and aerospace applications. It provides requirements for operation, compatibility, power utilization and testing for all single-phase or three-phase wire-connected, grounded neutral systems. Among the considerations when sourcing a MIL-STD-704 power supply are input transient handling, maximum distortion allowed, acceptable limits for voltage, under voltage conditions, and a variety of demanding requirements.
ACT provides a number of products that meet MIL-STD-704 standards, including 270VDC power supplies; 3-phase, 115 VAC 400 Hz power supplies; and 115 VAC 60 Hz power supplies. Our products can be found in many military aircraft, where they are essential to providing dependable power for displays, communications systems and other electronics.
Protect Against Failure With a MIL-STD-704 Compliant Power Supply
For military applications, ACT products offer power you can trust at an affordable price. When it comes to aerospace and aviation devices, you can’t take a risk on an inferior power supply. Our military-grade aerospace power supply products are:

Trust ACT With Your Power Supply Needs
The majority of equipment failures in military aircraft are due to design and engineering shortcomings that lead to transient spikes, voltage surges and other power irregularities. For this reason, a power supply you can trust is essential when designing and manufacturing new equipment.
Since 1981, Advanced Conversion Technology has been a leading manufacturer of aerospace power supply equipment that meets MIL-STD-704 and other requirements. Our engineering team has a combined 300 years of experience, and we’ve invested in our vertical manufacturing capabilities to provide comprehensive in-house design and acceptance testing for everything we sell.
A smaller supply chain not only keeps costs down, it allows us to provide the highest possible level of quality control over every aspect of a device. All our aerospace power supplies are extensively tested and can be modified in various ways to better suit your needs.
