Back-up power is essential for all flight operations, but none more critical than protecting flight data for routine or emergency evaluations. And like its flange-mounted relative, the L3Harris Type II Tray Recorder Independent Power Supply (RIPS) is designed to provide critical back-up battery power for Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVRs). RIPS provides 10 minutes of independent back-up power in accordance with FAA requirements when standard aircraft power is interrupted or lost.
- Fits in the original ½-ATR envelop when used with the FA2100 CVR
- Uses nickel cadmium (NiCad) battery technology and batteries do not require recharge time to repeat a back-up operation
- Features Built-in Test Equipment (BITE) and requires no aircraft wiring changes
