Rugged UPS to provide AC or DC power to military equipment introduced by Acumentrics

WESTWOOD, Mass., 15 Jan. 2013. Acumentrics Rugged-UPS in Westwood, Mass., is introducing the ACG3000 rugged uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to provide clean AC or DC power to protect military communications and surveillance equipment from shutdowns or data loss.

Designed for worldwide deployment in harsh physical and electrical environments, the ACG3000 power electronics device produces 3000 volt amps and 2400 Watts of nominal 115-volt AC output from an input range of 80 to 265 volts AC from 47 to 440 Hz.

This voltage and frequency tolerance enables rugged UPS users to power-up with field generators in any international power standard to provide seamless active power-factor correction and clean reliable AC power, company officials say.

The on-line double-conversion UPS continually creates a sine wave AC output from a DC bus to protect sensitive equipment from surges, spikes, brownouts, blackouts, and noise. DC output options are available.

The unique flo-thru heatsink provides cooling while sealing components from water, airborne particles, and other contaminants. Lithium-ion or low-maintenance, valve-regulated lead acid batteries are enclosed in a user replaceable battery pack for rapid hot-swap field replacement. The Lithium-Ion pack offers a lighter weight energy source with longer shelf life and cycle life.

The device has a rated operating temperature range of -18 to 50 degrees Celsius, and meets MIL-STD 461-F, MIL-S-901-D, and MIL-STD-810-G.

The microprocessor-controlled, ACG3000 also is equipped with a 9-pin communication port for user interface and remote monitoring. Optional features include: Transit case, Rackmount Kit, Extended Run Battery Pack, and Simple Network Management Protocol, an Internet-standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks.
