Rugged-UPS™ Automatically Shuts Off During Roll-Overs
Most RUPS (Rugged Uninterruptible Power Supply) units and power conditioners remain “on” during vehicle and power equipment roll-overs due to shock, vibration, or kinetic impact during combat. UPS systems remaining on in those situations pose a safety risk to vehicle occupants, power generators, and sensitive electronic equipment. Addressing that risk, Acumentrics Corporation recently introduced the Rugged-UPS™ 2500 DC Series of uninterruptible power supply and/or power conditioner units that automatically sense the orientation of the vehicle or piece of equipment, and shut off. These units can also send a 12 VDC trigger signal to another system, for example, to relay an emergency alarm or activate another safety-related device.
