Power Distribution (AMPHION)

As a recognized leader in power distribution, AMETEK PDS offers a complete range of power generation and distribution solutions, designed to solve simple and complex problems for the aerospace industry with the capability to integrate all parts of the generation and distribution system.

AMETEK’s power distribution products are based on the patented AMPHION™ solid state power controller design. AMPHION™ products utilize AMETEK's patented fail-open technology for reliable control of electrical power. Every AMPHION™ device is capable of switching power, monitoring current/voltage and, detecting arc faults. Our product solutions include remote control and programmable power management. The modular design of our products ensures cost effectiveness and replaces relays, circuit breakers, pulsed-power controllers, and power monitor devices.
