Cessna Mustang Upgrade Available with Platinum Series Concorde RG-390E/30 Sealed Lead Acid Batteries
Concorde Battery Corporation announces FAA Approval for its RG-390E/30 to be installed on the Cessna 510 Mustang. STC SA02653LA replaces the original equipment battery with a 30-ampere hour drop in replacement that is 5 pounds lighter.
Direct replacement of the original equipment battery with the RG-390E/30 offers benefits of prolonged service life and extended maintenance intervals as a result of enhanced plate design and a proprietary PolyGuard® separator system. High cyclic operations, that are susceptible to early battery wear out, will realize longer life as a result of the technology used in the RG-390E/30. Additionally, the robust design extends the inspection interval with initial inspection required at 12 months or 1000 hours in service and subsequent capacity tests at six months or 500 hours, when initial capacity exceeds 90%.
The RG-390E/30 is FAA TSO-C173a authorized, confirming that the battery meets the Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) in DO-293A and is FAA PMA certified specifically for the Cessna Mustang.
