The field proven Rugged Systems™ UPS line is ideally suited for military, industrial, computer and telecommunications applications requiring high reliability, rugged construction, compact size and light weight design. These units are equally suited for use in shipboard, airborne, vehicular, field deployed or fixed locations with controlled or uncontrolled environments. The ETI0001-1450 is specifically designed as an ultra compact unit to mount in the US Navy Q-70 E-CDWS racks. The ETI0001-1450 does not require a separate PDU since the PDU functions are already integrated into the UPS module. This saves rack space, cabling and expense while improving overall reliability.
The heavy-duty chassis occupies only4U (7”) for the electronics module and 2U (3.5″) for the battery module of rack space by an ultra shallow 12″ deep. 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 transformer provides galvanic isolation with provisions for domestic (115 VAC, CONUS) and optional international (230 VAC, OCONUS) input voltages. The unit also operates as a frequency converter, taking 46-70 hertz input and converting it to 60 hertz power. Special EMI/RFI filters and input power factor correction minimize both input current and harmonics. The input circuit breaker and the galvanic isolation transformer all provide a double pole isolated source for all installations including shipboard systems or overseas locations where phase references and grounding are not consistent.
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. All controls and protective devices are brought to front and rear panels with critical switches having finger guards. 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, or on the unit front panel with only a logic level cable connection.
The rear panel provides locking connectors for the input and output power with various optional configurations available. The removable and washable intake air filters and high capacity stainless steel ball bearing fan provide added protection in both controlled and hostile environments. This version draws air through the rear and exhausts out the front vents. The external battery connector allows the safe and easy addition of the standard or extra battery modules without having to shut the unit down. The batteries are maintenance free with immobilized electrolyte and are constructed of flame retardant materials.
For more information, see the Battery Technology section. The Status connector provides an interface with optional computer software providing loss of AC and low battery status as well as remote shut down capability.

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.
