7-20-15 Extend Battery Life using Updates to the Concorde Battery Component Maintenance Manual for RG® Series Main Aircraft Battery

West Covina, CA - Concorde is committed to first class customer support and focuses efforts on current product improvement as well as new product development. Part of this effort is evaluating maintenance procedures for clarity to ensure customer safety for optimal product performance and in turn extending battery life, improving customer experience and minimizing end user inconvenience.

 

Concorde's newly released CMM (24-30-71), Document No. 5-0171 Revision N, dated March 31, 2015, provides clarification of the Conditioning Charge Procedure used to recover sulfated batteries as evidenced by way of a failed Capacity Test. Previous revisions of CMM 5-0171 have recommended that either a 31 volt or 16 hour condition charge procedure may be used to recover a sulfated battery. The option was left to the mechanic. After years of battery recovery analysis, Concorde's engineers have found that the 31 volt Condition Charge is the most successful charge procedure prescribed for recovering deeply discharged batteries. A deeply discharged battery is described as a battery with an open circuit voltage of 20 volts or less for a 24 volt battery (10 volts or less for a 12 volt battery). Alternatively, the 16 hour Condition Charge Procedure is the best Condition Charge program for recovering batteries that are not considered deeply discharged (OCV above 20 volts for a 24 volt battery and above 10 volts for a 12 volt battery).

 

Revision "N" also includes a Battery Maintenance Log, added to the back of the manual where the battery's annual capacity test results may be logged. To download the latest version of Concorde's Component Maintenance Manuals please visit: www.concordebattery.com/main_air_tech.php.

8-1-14 AC & DC Powered Heated Concorde RG® Series Batteries Optimizing Performance and Convenience for Cold Weather Operators

West Covina, CA - Cold temperatures increase the internal resistance which decreases a battery’s capacity and slows the battery’s ability to accept charge current. For years operators in cold climates have made it a practice to endure the inconvenience of removing batteries from aircraft, transporting and storing them in a heated environment, then reinstalling prior to departure. Some also use external heater blankets that wrap around the battery and heat the outermost cells when the aircraft is parked. Although this solution increases capacity, in some cases the battery cells are not equally heated resulting in diminished capacity and disproportionate recharge across battery cells.

 

In order to maximize battery performance, Concorde has developed heated batteries in our most popular sizes to mitigate these problems. Concorde’s RG-380E/44, RG-380E/60 and RG-390E series of heated batteries incorporate internal AC (115 V nominal) and DC (28 V nominal) heater blankets that surround cells in the most optimal manor for equalizing cell heating. These blankets are controlled by a Heater Control Unit (HCU) offered in four different TSO authorized varieties. HCU-1 is a DC only unit and uses DC power supply to operate the heaters. HCU-2 is an AC only unit that heats the battery using AC power. HCU-3 and HCU-4 are dual power units that allow for either AC or DC power supply. HCU-3 accommodates AC or DC power supplied through a single receptacle whereas HCU-4 has separate receptacles for AC and DC power. Each HCU controls battery temperature with thermal switches that automatically turn on or off depending on the temperature of the battery. Redundant switches are in place to prevent the possibility of overheating.

RG380E 60LHSome airframe manufacturers have already incorporated this design into their aircraft to provide end users with optimal performance and zero inconvenience. 

 

Heated batteries are TSO authorized and available in the following part numbers: RG-380E/44KH, RG-380E/44KSH, RG-380E/44LH, RG-380E/44LSH, RG-380E/60KH, RG-380E/60KSH, RG-380E/60LH, RG-380E/60LSH, RG-390E/KH, RG-390E/KSH, RG-390E/LH and RG-390E/LSH.

7-30-14 Aircraft Battery Capacity Test Adjustment – Concorde Battery Tech Bulletin No. 14

West Covina, CA - Concorde Battery Corporation`s Component Maintenance Manual (CMM) 5-0171 states that Capacity Check intervals are general recommendations suitable for most applications. The intervals may be adjusted for a specific aircraft or fleet once the average battery life is established. How does one establish the average battery life?

 

Concorde has released Technical Bulletin No. 14 - “Capacity Check Interval Adjustment” available at www.concordebattery.com. This bulletin gives guidance on how to establish average battery life and adjust capacity test intervals in accordance with that life. Capacity tests are the only accurate means of quantifying a battery`s state of health and verifying airworthiness. A battery capacity of 80% or more is considered airworthy by the FAA and is required in order to supply essential power in the event of an alternator or generator failure. Aircraft that are flown under the same environmental conditions, follow the same operating patterns and are configured with the same electrical systems can extend their capacity test intervals based on previous battery life. 

 

This Technical Bulletin walks you through proper methodology for accurately adjusting the capacity check schedule. A full copy of the Technical Bulletin is available at: http://www.concordebattery.com/otherpdf/TB14.pdf

 

Concorde has designed and manufactured application specific solutions for over 3 decades in West Covina, California. Concorde is a supplier of over 90 models of Original Equipment and direct replacement lead acid batteries for fixed wing and rotary aircraft.

7-29-14 Concorde Battery Higher Power RG-380E/46 Series Batteries Receive TSO Approval: Drop in replacement for RG-380E/44 Series

West Covina, CA - Concorde Battery Higher Power RG-380E/46 Series Batteries Receive TSO Approval:
Drop in replacement for RG-380E/44 Series

RG 380E 46AConcorde Battery Corporation announces TSO approval of the RG-380E/46 battery series. The RG-380E/46 series batteries have more power at the same weight and in the same dimensions as the popular RG® Series RG-380E/44 batteries. Concorde is continuously working on developing longer lasting and more powerful Sealed Lead Acid Batteries and through Research and Development produced a battery the same size and weight as the RG-380E/44 with higher capacity and more instantaneous power. This direct replacement supplies 10% more power at 46 Ah than the 42 Ah RG-380E/44. When used in the same application, the RG-380E/46 will last longer (due to a lower depth of discharge on engine start), cause less engine wear (due to more cranking power), and provide more essential power in the event of an alternator failure allowing more time to safely land the aircraft. Obtaining TSO approval was the first step toward updating STCs that incorporate the RG-380E/44 to include this higher power solution. Revised STCs for the superior RG-380E/46 battery should be available in the near future.

Concorde has designed and manufactured application specific solutions for over 3 decades in West Covina, California. Concorde supplies over 90 models of Original Equipment and direct replacement lead acid batteries for fixed wing and rotary aircraft.
