The Force Protection Cougar troop transport vehicle. The Bae Caiman multi-terrain tactical vehicle. The FMTV family of medium tactical vehicle. All of these military armored systems are designed to serve various battlefield requirements and terrain, including protection and mobility for armed-forces operators.

What all of these vehicles need to operate is power. And it has to be reliable, stable, and portable. APITech has designed and built the most rugged Power Entry Panels (PEPs) for military applications that require continuous power for mission-critical electronics, while also having a high tolerance for shock, vibration, and extreme weather conditions.

Why Choose APITech’s PEP?

7200-a-125-1-fnt-rtAPITech’s PEPs supply military applications and electronics with clean and stable power. That’s not all. They are designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions, explosive devices, and other battlefield dangers. More so, they fit seamlessly in tactical, armored vehicles.

Read on to find more benefits of using APITech’s PEPs for combat vehicles.

  1. Light and compact designs

Size, weight, and power (SWaP) are the key areas that PEP manufacturers compete on. Through innovation, APITech took a 92lb PEP device and redesigned it to weight 72lbs. This resulted in a 53% reduction in overall volume and a 22% reduction in weight, while adding enhanced performance. The PEP can withstand the harshest environments, including high-water exposure and concentrations of sand, dust, and salt fog. The PEP also stays watertight to a depth of one meter.

  1. Varied applications

APITech’s PEPs can be used in a fielded state, not mounted to a vehicle, and operate effectively in any three-phase environment. It meets an array of MIL-STD-810 requirements and has been tested for environmental durability against thermal shock, salt fog, blowing sand and dust, fungus, vibration, ground bond, and mechanical shock.

pep-light-sideIf you are on the lookout for a power entry panel, look no further than APITech’s PEPS. APITech not only has light and compact designs, but systems can be controlled remotely. APITech constructs compact PEPs for easier installation, delivering more space, fuel savings, and more payload capacity.
