VPT Inc. announced that it has added three new products to its COTS product line – the VPT Series. The new 15 and 30W modules are claimed to satisfy the Department of Defense’s "Commercial-off-the-Shelf" directive in terms of low cost, high performance, and satisfaction of stringent military and avionics industry requirements.

"These new products provide additional off-the-shelf options for designers of aircraft, vehicles, and weapons systems seeking affordable, yet extremely reliable, dc-dc power modules," explained Michael J. Bosmann, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VPT. "With the addition of these modules, our VPT Series product line now offers the full range of power options from5 to 100 watts in standard output power configurations."

The new products include the VPT15-2800D dual output, VPT30-2800S single output, and VPT30-2800D dual output modules.
