Leonardo DRS' 1500VA Tactical Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) provides conditioned backup power to command, control, and communication equipment where a clean, reliable power supply is essential. The Tactical UPS provides 115 VAC, 60 Hz single-phase high quality output power using Type 1, 115 VAC supply conforming to MIL-STD-1399.
If input power is lost, or if the power quality is outside acceptable limits, the UPS system will seamlessly transition to five minutes of battery backup power (at full load) and upon restoration automatically revert to ship’s power. The backup time can be extended to 30 minutes at 50% load with the addition of an external battery module.
Each Tactical UPS consists of internal power modules, control and communication circuitry, and an internal hot swappable battery pack. Its 3U height and 12.5 inches (317 mm) depth can accommodate both shallow and standard racks.
In addition to local audible and visual alarms, the Tactical UPS offers both dry contact and RS232 output signal allowing faults to be relayed to a remote monitoring location. A front panel mounted OLED display provides real time unit status including voltage and current, battery charge level and fault messages.
