7/28/10 - Concorde Battery Receives Technical Standard Order C173 Authorization for Additional Turbine Engine Starting Batteries
Concorde Battery Corporation has received Technical Standard Order C173 (TSO-C173) authorization for eight additional aircraft batteries. Part numbers include:
TSO Authorization means the battery is qualified as an airworthy component. It can be installed in any aircraft by showing that the requirements (certification basis) of the particular aircraft model are met by the TSO battery. This is an advantage to end users who can install an airworthy part without the need of a PMA specifying their aircraft model number. Airframe manufacturers seeking Type Certification and STC applicants will save time and certification costs by selecting a battery that has already met FAA TSO-C173, which incorporates RTCA/DO-293 requirements.
These newly authorized RG batteries are recombinant gas (RG® Series) VRLA-AGM high rate turbine starting batteries and can also be used for emergency / standby applications.
Concorde Battery designs and manufactures over 90 models for Original Equipment and direct replacement batteries for fixed wing and rotary aircraft. Certifications and approvals include Type Certified, TSO-C173, & FAA-PMA parts. Concorde’s recombinant gas RG® Series has been proven and adopted for use on military and commercial aircraft worldwide since 1987. Concorde manufactures to ISO 9001:2000 + AS9100B strict quality standards.
