7-31-13 Higher Capacity Battery Now Available for Agusta A119 & AW119 MKII
WEST COVINA, CA- Concorde is pleased to announce recently certified FAA STC SA01703WI to replace the original Nickel-Cadmium or RG-407 battery with the NEW higher capacity RG-427 battery on Agusta A119 and AW119 MKII.
Customers asked and we listened! Fleet customers with high cyclic operations needing more power and extended battery life to increase their efficiencies asked if we could build a higher capacity battery. Concorde’s engineering team answered the challenge by designing the higher capacity RG-427 34 Ah battery delivering an additional 26% of power over the original 27 Ah Nickel-Cadmium battery in a footprint only fractionally larger than the RG-407. This makes the RG-427 a “Drop in Replacement” for either the original Nickel Cadmium or Concorde’s RG-407 (installed with STC SR09360RC).
Development of the new RG-427 is a perfect example of reaching solutions by collaborating with customers. Concorde has a reputation for designing application specific solutions and is proud to have successfully grown market share by responding to customer and aircraft manufacturer’s design requests. Concorde’s AW-139 / AB-139 STC was also accomplished by customer request. Users have been very pleased with the higher capacity battery on the AW-139 and AB-139 and the same results are expected from the RG-427 on the Agusta A119 and AW119 MKII.
RG-427 is FAA - TSO authorized and constructed with Concorde’s cutting edge and proven Recombinant Gas RG®, Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) maintenance free technology. Our superior lead acid performance can be attributed to unique design features such as proprietary PolyGuard® separators (an additional layer of protection against shorting, exclusive to Concorde) robust plate construction, over the cell wall intercell connections for reduced internal resistance and a commitment to high quality standards. Concorde batteries have been proven reliable, durable and safe for over 30 years.
