The field proven Rugged 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 ETI0001-2210 was initially designed for US Army HMMWV (“HUMVEE”) applications, becoming the standard for several programs.
The heavy-duty chassis occupies only 3U (5.25″) of rack space while delivering up to 1500 VA of clean, uninterruptible power. The rounded metal corners and rugged handles, aid in safe handling. Internally, all major components are well secured and electrically insulated to prevent damage due to shock and vibration. The optional mounting kit includes flanges and legs for either horizontal or vertical positioning.
The optional internal shielded input transformer provides galvanic isolation with provisions for domestic (115 VAC, CONUS) and optionally for international (230 VAC, OCONUS) input voltages. For field deployed scenarios, the optional Cold Start feature allows the unit to run from its battery module before external AC is available.
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 and rear panels with critical switches or breakers guarded. Further, all front panel devices are recessed to prevent damage or accidental operation. Various optional power distribution controls are available which mount on the front panel or remotely.
The rear panel provides locking connectors for the input and output power. Multiple input and output power panel options are available. A removable and washable intake air filter and high capacity stainless steel ball bearing fan provide added protection in both controlled and hostile environments. The air is drawn from the rear and exhaust air is diverted out the front vent, with alternate air flow directions optional. The external battery connector allows the safe and easy addition of 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.
