AFCEA West 2015 Week: Why the Rugged MIL-STD Power Entry Panel is the Ideal Solution for AC & DC Shore and Onboard Power Distribution

by Jaymie Murray 4. February 2015 11:00

API's Rugged MIL-STD Power Entry Panels (PEP) distribute onboard vehicle power and shore power to Command Post Platforms and other derivatives, ensuring reliable power is sent to critical communications and telemetry equipment with minimal downtime and optimal performance. Designed to MIL-STD 810 standards, the rugged PEP is made to withstand brutal elements without sacrificing functionality, portability, or power. This unique combination of features makes the PEP an excellent solution for AC & DC shore and onboard power distribution. 

  • Ideal Input/Output (I/O) Power. Featuring both +24/28 VDC (5.6 kW) @ 200 Amps and 3 Phase AC (21.6 kW) @ 60 Amp per Phase I/O distribution capability, the power panel also includes a 3 Phase 60 Amp pass through connector interface to support additional forward operating base requirements. 
  • Built Rugged. The PEP was designed to withstand the harsh conditions often found in the field. It is operational from -46º C to 60 º C, and meets MIL-STD 810 standards for shock, vibration, rail impact, water tightness, and fungus, as well as MIL-STD 461E EMC requirements.
  • SWaP-ped. The size, weight, and power consumption have all been reduced in this unit, all while enhancing functionality. Overall weight has been reduced by 22% (72 lbs. vs. 92 lbs.), and maximum specified volume has been reduced by 53% (1.27 ft³ vs. 2.7 ft³). These reductions allow for an easier installation, creates more space for new configurations, increases fuel savings, and adds to payload capacity.
  • Fault Protected. The PEP is a reliable fault protected power distribution system capable of preventing damage to critical mission sensitive data & communication hardware in the shelter or tactical vehicles.
