New MIL-STD-1399-300 Part 1 Shipboard AC Power Test Option

Irvine, California, February 2022 — Pacific Power Source is pleased to announce the release of its latest suite of test routines specifically designed to test AC products for compliance with Department of Defense Interface Standard Mil-Std-1399-300, “Aircraft Electric Power Characteristics”. This new software option expands Pacific Power Source Inc.’s growing portfolio of Defense related Power Compliance Test options.

The Mil-Std 1399-300 test standard is published by the Department of Defense and applies to all shipboard AC power systems. First published in 1978, it has undergone several revision changes culminating in its current Part 1 revision.

Available as an integrated option package running within the Pacific Power Source UPC Studio Windows control program, the Pacific Power Source Inc. MIL-STD-1399-300-1 option includes the latest Part 1 test sequences for all AC power groups. Power groups include single and three phase, fixed 400Hz frequency as well as single and three phase 60Hz power group test sequences.

Detailed test reports in Rich Text Format are generated automatically at the end of each test run. Included test report templates can be customized with the End-users Logo’s and company name as needed.

As an integral part of the PPSC Test Manager software, the MIL-STD-1399-300-1 test option is available for both the Linear LMX Series AC Power Sources – which offers superior performance – as well as the AFX and AZX Series AC Power Sources. For high power testing requirements, the AFX or AZX Series AC Power source provides the required high current capability.

“We are pleased to offer this test capability to both new and existing customers of Pacific Power Source products. This new addition to our defense related power compliance test offerings allows our customers to get additional use and value from their AC Power Source investment and saves them a considerable amount of setup and programming time when performing these compliance tests.” according to Eric Lord, Director of Sales for Pacific Power Source.

Target customers for this new MIL-STD-1399-300-1 test option are EMC Test Labs involved with military product certification and testing. Also, manufacturers of AC powered shipboard equipment that need to certify their products to this MIL standard can use this option to check for compliance during early stages of product development.
