J&B Aviation Services - Hobart Ground Systems

J&B Aviation Services Inc. is a multifaceted organization providing solutions to customer requirements for 400Hz power distribution, preconditioned air, potable water, lavatory service, air start, baggage lifts and chutes and aircraft.

In 1991, J&B Aviation Services, Inc. opened its 2400 square-foot facility in Fairfield, California--35 miles north of San Francisco near the Napa Valley. The company, founded by Alan J. Janis and Bruce K. Warne, filled the void in the marketplace for products and services that the absence of McCormick Morgan Power Systems Engineers had created. J&B's expertise and insistence upon premium quality products promptly gave them the reputation as the industry leader. Their unique 400 Hz cable assembly designs, with options for replaceable noses, swiftly became the most popularly used assemblies both with commercial and government customers. In 2002, J&B became part of the ITW family of companies. J&B Aviation is now located in Santa Rosa, CA and is the exclusive North American distributor for numerous ground support manufacturers.

Reactive Load Bank

Product From J&B Aviation Services - Hobart Ground Systems

J'B's Reactive Load Bank, used in conjunction with a Resistive Load Bank, provides "point-of-use" load, where 400 Hz power is required. Load testing with only a resistive load will not provide a load with 0.8 power factor. This in turn will not show the true voltage drop when an aircraft is connected at full load. The combination of inductive reactance provided by the Reactive Load Bank and the resistice load provided by the Resistive Load Bank will yield a power factor of 0.8 lagging. This is the specified power factor in Mil-Std-704E. Also, the Reactive Load Bank will accept one or two aircraft cables, permitting full load test of power source up to 84 KVAR.
