NEWARK, N.Y., 2 April 2010. Ultralife Corp. in Newark, N.Y., is providing its McDowell Research brand MRC-93 Ultimate Battery Eliminator for U.S. Army and Marine Corps manpack radios and other portable military electronic equipment under terms of contracts worth about $2 million, company officials say.

The MRC-93 is a universal self-contained battery eliminator that connects directly to a radio transceiver replacing the battery box. It can connect to a wide variety of military radio communications transceivers such as the AN/PRC-117F and AN/PRC-138 multiband manpack radios, among others.

The MRC-93 provides regulated DC power output from an external AC or DC power source to operate DC-powered equipment. This encompasses most AC generating systems on aircraft, ships, and other power sources including solar, wind, and diesel generators. Deliveries should be finished by late this spring.

The Eliminator also can use any communications batteries as backup power should the unit lose AC or DC input power. For more information contact Ultralife online at www.ultralifecorp.com.
