True Blue Power and DAC International complete a Part 25 Approved Model List (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) for the TS60 Emergency Battery Power Supply on more than 13 business-jet models, including Boeing 737-200, Hawker 750/800/850/900/1000, and the Bombardier Challenger 600 Series aircraft.

The True Blue Power® TS60 is a direct replacement for Honeywell Grimes power supplies and battery assemblies. It features advanced NanoPhosphate® lithium-ion cell chemistry and a life expectancy of eight years. It saves operators time and money with easier installation and significantly reduced maintenance, only requiring two-year capacity checks. 

The TS60 utilizes aircraft power to recharge and maintain full capacity. It provides more power than needed to meet the required 20 minutes of emergency lighting run time. The advanced, four-cell configuration offers up to 30 minutes of power and then recharges to full capacity within minutes.

This new Part 25 AML STC adds to the growing number of aircraft flying with the TS60. The True Blue Power Emergency Battery Power Supply was STC-approved on the De Havilland DHC-8 Series, including the Q400, in 2018.

For more information about STC applications for the TS60 Emergency Battery Power Supply, contact Tom Genovese, director of Commercial Transport and Defense, at 316-630-0101 or visit
