Energy Technologies Exhibits Latest Designs at AFCEA / Naval Institute West 2022

AFCEA / Naval Institute West to be held February 16-18, 2022 in San Diego, California.

  • Mansfield, OH, January 12, 2022: Energy Technologies, Inc. (ETI) will be exhibiting it latest rugged products at the AFCEA (Armed Forces Communications Electronics Association) / Naval Institute West 2022 conference and exhibit show to be held February 16-18, 2022 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Expanded Tactical Power® Generator, Inverter, UPS, Solar, and Fuel Cell Product Lines to be featured.

Energy Technologies, Inc. (ETI), the Standard in rugged power conditioning, will be exhibiting its expanded Tactical Power rugged Fuel Cell, Inverter, Generator, Solar and UPS product lines. Featured products will include:

  • Tactical Generator® deployable power source producing computer-grade AC or DC power
  • Tactical Inverter® self-contained inverters that quickly and safely set up in 2 minutes or less.
  • Deployable Tactical UPS® units that will accept any AC input and convert it to US grade power.
  • Tactical Solar® flexible solar panels, charge controllers, power converters, and battery backup.
  • Tactical Power Plant® deployable total power solution producing uninterrupted computer power using shore power, vehicle power, or available fuels.
  • Tactical Fuel Cells® rugged hydrogen-powered plant with rapid start and temperature tolerance.
  • Tactical Shelter Systems® includes all of the above products in a modular, scalable system with fast erect soft walled shelters from Utilis.

The Tactical Power lines of AC and DC products are readily deployable providing Warfighters and First Responders with reliable computer or medical grade power for all field applications. These rugged units are designed to be deployable worldwide and can operate from any AC power in a given country or from the 12 VDC or 24 VDC in HMMWV, other military vehicles, and aircraft.

The Tactical Solar family consists of rugged, flexible solar panels, charge controllers, and complete portable solar power solutions including solar UPS in water-tight cases for global applications in hostile environments. These systems range from small, light-weight solar totes for individual use in powering and/or charging notebooks and radios to larger deployable systems with AC and DC battery backup for 24-7 operations of complete networks or communications systems.

The Tactical Inverter Series are totally self-contained in rugged enclosures with NATO connections for quick no-tool setup. These inverters range in power output from 150 watts to 10,000 watts and are available in transit case or universal mount with cabling to quickly connect to NATO Slave connectors found in most military vehicles including HMMWV, Stryker, Abrams, and other tactical vehicles. They produce clean sinewave AC at 120 VAC, 60 hertz allowing the use of both military grade and commercial electronics.

The Tactical UPS units range in output from 250 VA to 24,000 VA, which is more than adequate to support the critical electronic computer and communications equipment in most applications. They are designed to accept commercial power or mobile generator power ranging from 85 to 270 VAC. The input frequency can range from 45 to 440 hertz allowing even the use of aircraft power. These voltages and frequencies cover all standard AC voltages worldwide. The UPS converts these inputs to standard 120 VAC, 60 hertz used by most electronic equipment manufactured in the USA. This allows the use of standard military equipment including commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) to be operated reliably anywhere in the world. Other output voltages with 50, 60, 400, or 1000 hertz output frequencies are also available. Besides converting the voltage and frequency, the ETI UPS eliminates all the voltage and frequency fluctuations, transients, and distortions, providing only clean sinusoidal power to the crucial equipment.

Tactical Generator advantages include using diesel, JP-8, and JP-5 fuels, being lighter weight with quieter operation. Unlike most generators, one Tactical Generator P/N can produce high-quality 50, 60, 400 or 1000 Hz AC and/or DC suitable for direct use with electronic equipment.

Tactical Power Plant combines the advantages of ETI’s generator, inverter, and UPS products into a small deployable package. TPP can use local AC input, vehicle DC input, and/or its own generator to produce clean, uninterrupted power to the command center continuously.

ETI’s Tactical Fuel Cells are being incorporated into the TPP in place of the engine generator. These fuels cells offer a unique metal-hydride approach over traditional PEM technologies. Compared to PEM, they are more rugged, operate over a wider temperature range, do not have expensive platinum that is subject to poisoning, store energy like a battery, and have instant start capability; all advantages needed in a tactical environment.

The new Tactical Field Office is a modular office system that provides the convenience of a modern office, yet is deployable worldwide at a moment’s notice. These systems are comprised of various modules configured to meet the needs of your applications. These modules include a Tactical Desk™ (1-4 personal workstations that fold into a small cubic shipping container);  Tactical UPS or Power Conditioner built-in; Notebook Power Station™ (slide-out tray to support a  notebook or printer while providing clean power, multiple USB ports, and additional cooling for a notebook or printer); and Tactical Task Light™ (easily positioned, energy-efficient, dimmable LED lighting to illuminate your workspace that is equivalent to a 100 watt light bulb while using less than 10 watts of energy).

With Tactical Shelter Systems, ETI has teamed with Utilis USA to offer complete systems solutions for deployable shelters. Utilis manufactures a series of rapidly deployable tactical soft-wall shelters. By combining ETI’s portable power sources, either company can offer a total solution to deployable shelter requirements.

ETI products are already successfully deployed in military and industrial applications worldwide. For example,

  • Predator – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
  • Aerostat – Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS)
  • F35/JSF – Joint Strike Fighter
  • TTWCS – Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System
  • SSDS – Navy’s Ship Self Defense System (Phalanx, Sea Sparrow)
  • CAC2S – Marine Corp’s Common Aviation Command and Control System
  • THAAD – Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (Patriot)
  • WAAS – FAA’s Wide Area Augmentation System (flight navigation)

Energy Technologies, Inc. (ETI) provides field-proven reliability in its cost-effective, well-engineered products. These product solutions cover the production, conditioning, storage, and control of AC and DC power in a wide range of environments. These rugged products meet the demands and rigors of the military, government, industrial, medical, and telecommunications sectors. Mobile applications include shipboard, submarine, vehicular, aircraft, and field deployment. Stationary applications consist of factories, process plants, utilities, networks, even offshore platforms, and desert installations. The Rugged Systems™ and Military Power® lines are comprised of intelligent UPS, power distribution units, frequency converters, and battery systems. The intelligent features include the ability to monitor and control the equipment and their loads via local and/or remote interfaces such as SNMP and HTTP. Tactical Power versions operate from all voltages and frequencies worldwide including aircraft or vehicular power. Airborne Power® units provide frequency conversion and backup power aboard commercial or military aircraft to provide 50, 60, 400, or 1000 hertz power to operate commercial equipment. TelecomPower™ covers telecommunications-grade DC rectifiers, chargers, and battery systems. The Medical Grade Power™ includes AC and DC power products for both stationary and mobile applications that meet the stringent requirements of medical applications.

Each product is modular in design and may be configured to suit a particular application or integrated into a total system solution. All lines are available as either Military Grade (Mil-Spec) or Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS).
