Power Supply: Solving PP-6224B Shortage

BLUF: The power supply for C5ISR equipment requiring 24v DC 0-25 amps can be hard to get; a substitute is available.

Power supply PP-6224B/U, NSN 6130-01-223-0267, LIN P40750, in TM 11-6130-458-24P (May 88) and TM 11-6130-458-14 (Sep 88), provides power to C5ISR equipment requiring 24v DC 0-25 amps. It’s widely used in tactical operations centers (TOCs) or when systems are dismounted from a vehicle application.

This power supply is in sustainment and repairs have been limited by long lead times and low final recovery rate of repairable assets, due to obsolete parts. If unit readiness is affected by power supply shortages, there is a good substitute.     

CECOM maintains stock of a class II power supply, PP-2953E/U, NSN 6130-01-625-1011. It’s not listed in the TMs, but it provides an alternate way to keep supporting mission requirements. As a class II item, units must drop a funded requisition in order to get the substitute power supply.
