The Integrated Back-up Battery System, IBBS, is an
electronic system that combines a Ni-mh battery pack, a charger and switching
logic in one convenient package. The IBBS provides an engineered solution
to enable an endurance bus for critical loads found in aircraft. It simplifies
the wiring and installation of a source of back-up power by integrating all of
the key elements into a single enclosure. The IBBS system provides back-up
power to electronic loads such as EFIS, GPS, Autopilots, Engine monitors and
Electronic Ignition systems.
Integral to the IBBS is a nickel
metal-hydride battery pack and a matched charging system to ensure the battery
is properly charged and maintained. The system also includes switching
circuitry to provide a stable source of output power during normal and emergency
operations. The IBBS system also provides signals to other equipment such as
EFIS systems to communicate the operating state of the back-up bus as well as
the state of the battery.
The IBBS system connects to the
standard aircraft power bus and provides an output to critical equipment that
requires back-up power. Additionally, the IBBS system provides surge and sag
protection for connected equipment, allowing operation of critical equipment
during engine starting.
The IBBS system is suitable for
use with equipment such as Garmin GNS-430/w, GNS-530/w, G3X series of avionics,
Grand Rapids Technologies EFIS systems, Advanced Flight Systems EFIS, Dynon
EFIS, and MGL EFIS, TruTrak Autopilots and EFIS.
The IBBS system has been approved for use with a single Light Speed Engineering
Plasma Ignition system.
An AC plug-in ground based charger is available for convenient recharging of
IBBS system during product storage or after annual inspections.
