POWERplus is a remarkably compact, high power DC power system specifically designed for radio communications. It is a highly integrated product combining the function of a 12 VDC Uninterruptible Power System (UPS), high capacity battery charger, power distribution and capable power monitoring.
Its rugged design works well in both field, mobile and base station applications providing both automatic power changeover in the event of loss of DC power as well as built in battery charging capability for batteries with capacity up to 100Ah.
Multiple overload protected outputs and built in USB charger ports make this a powerful combination of features simplifying the station, improving reliability and reducing the clutter of messy and inefficient DC wiring. The interconnections between all of these functions are handled internally within POWERplus.
Here is what POWERplus does:
o Automatic changeover between DC power and emergency backup battery
• BATTERY CHARGER
o Multi-chemistry 3 and 4 stage high efficiency charger
o Adjustable charge rate and current monitoring
• USB CHARGER
o Dual USB charger outputs for phone/tablet/LED light charging
o Current limited outputs
• POWER MANAGEMENT
o Automatically disconnects the radio if the battery voltage is too high to protect your radio if something goes wrong with your DC Input.
o Monitors the battery and alerts you if the battery is getting too low and will even automatically disconnect to protect the battery from deep discharge.
o User adjustable DC output current limits
o Manual or automatic control of output groups
• POWER REPORTING
o Realtime monitoring of DC power supply and battery voltage and current
o Realtime monitoring of output loads
o Graphical indication of instantaneous load current
o Visual and audible indication of low battery voltage or pending disconnect
