The field proven Military Power® UPS line is ideally suited for military, industrial and telecommunications applications requiring a rugged rack, vehicular or field deployable, high reliability, compact size and light weight design. The heavy-duty chassis occupies only 4U (7.0”) of rack space and is only 18.5″ deep making it suitable for shallow racks as found on submarines. The front panel is sealed meeting the Navy drip proof requirements. The rounded metal corners and rugged handles, both front and rear, aid in safe handling. Internally, all major components are well secured and electrically insulated to prevent damage due to shock and vibration. The internal shielded input isolation transformer, EMI/RFI filters and input power factor correction minimize both input current and harmonics. The “1458” has the added benefit of having afield replaceable battery via a rear draw-out battery module.
The LED arrays keep the operator informed as to the unit’s status including load and battery levels. The high intensity audible alarm can be heard in high noise environments, yet is easily adjustable to suit quieter conditions. All controls and protective devices are brought to the front panel with critical switches or breakers guarded. Further, all front panel devices are recessed to prevent damage or accidental operation. The internal intelligent PDU allows control of the individual output circuits incorporating thermal and interlock interfaces for additional control and safety, plus Battle-short override. The display and control panel can be mounted remotely in the rack at eye level, or on the keyboard console with only a logic level cable connection. Both the input circuit breaker and isolation transformer provide double pole isolation for shipboard systems.
The rear panel provides locking connectors for the input and output power with various optional configurations available. The output connectors are unique allowing the use of either standard NEMA 5-15P plugs or MS threaded metal shell connectors. The washable air filters and high capacity ball bearing fan provide added protection in both controlled and hostile environments. The external battery connector allows the safe and easy addition of extra battery modules without having to shut the unit down. The status D shell connectors provide signal interfaces with optional computer software and the remote display/control panels.
Overall, the Outdoor Rugged Power line is uniquely qualified for critical shipboard, vehicle, airborne or land based systems combining advanced modular design features with highly reliable construction.
