The field proven Tactical Power® 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 ETI0001-2205 is being used as a power source in global defense applications because of the stringent performance and reliability requirements.
The heavy-duty UPS and Battery chases have rounded metal corners and rugged handles front and rear, aiding in safe handling. Internally, all major components are well secured and electrically insulated to prevent damage due to shock and vibration. The internal intelligent thermal sensors provide monitoring of unit temperatures, with both local and remote Battle-short override capability of thermal shutdown for emergency scenarios. Battle-short can be engaged via a remote contact input or via a software command. When in Battle-short, an audible alarm is sounded and an indicator is lit. The high intensity audible alarm can be heard in high noise environments and includes an audible enable/disable switch.
The internal shielded input transformer provides galvanic isolation with provisions for nominal 100, 115, 120, 208, 220, 230 and 240 VAC input voltages, 50 or 60 Hz. Special EMI/RFI filters, input power factor correction and inrush current limiting minimize both input current and harmonics.
The built-in Elapsed Time Indicator logs the hours of operation of the UPS as well as that of the equipment powered by the UPS. This can be used to plan preventative maintenance the entire system. 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 the front and rear panels with critical switches having finger guards. The front panel also provides easy access to both the AC Input and Battery Input fuses. Coupled with the onboard spare fuses, MTTR is reduced to less than 15 minutes.
Further, all front panel devices are recessed to prevent damage or accidental operation. The input circuit breaker and the galvanic isolation transformers 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 Maintenance Bypass Switch can be used to remove the UPS electronics module from service while still providing power to the connected loads.
The rear panel provides locking connectors for the input and output power. Removable, washable air filters combined with high capacity stainless steel ball bearing fans provide added protection in both controlled and hostile environments. The exhaust air is diverted out the rear vents, with alternate air flow directions optional.
The ETI0001-2205 has the added benefit of having a field replaceable battery via front draw out battery module. 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.
