Acumentrics Corporation Announces New Ruggedized Uninterruptible Power Solution in a "2U" Chassis
Smaller and Lighter to Meet Expanding Mission Equipment Needs
WESTWOOD, Mass., April 29, 2008 - Acumentrics Corporation, an industry leader in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) and Rugged Uninterruptible Power Supplies (Rugged-UPS(TM)) for mission critical military and industrial applications, has introduced a lighter, more compact 2U fully Rugged-UPS(TM) product line.
Models with a rugged 2U chassis design are available in 850VA, 1250VA or 1650VA versions. Development of the new product line is the direct result of customer demand for smaller and lighter units to increase available rack space needed to meet expanding mission electronics requirements. The standard measure of component height in a mounting rack is 1.75 inches, a "U". The new 2U versions are 3.5 inches high and are half the size of Acumentrics' previous 1250VA and 2500VA models. In addition to meeting industry reliability standards, the new units offer 10% higher power conversion efficiency than claimed by competitors, so that less energy is required to generate the required output power.
Acumentrics' flow-through heat sink design enables more complete chassis sealing to protect internal components from dirt, debris, rain, humidity and other potential contaminants. An optional extended run battery pack enables the units to provide up to 30 minutes of back-up power at full load.
"Weighing 50% less than the previous models, the new 2U products are ideal for mobile applications and their smaller size are an ideal fit for transit cases," said VP of Operations Ersson Zapata. "The decreased size and weight will reduce our customers' transportation costs."
Gary Simon, President and CEO said, "This new product line enhances our position as a top quality manufacturer of innovative new products. We will continue to execute development activities to ensure that we maintain the innovative and high standards that our customers have come to expect from us." 2U product specifications are available at the Acumentrics web site, www.acumentrics.com.
