Power up USA-based Protonex [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

(Stand N4-221) is showing its PTX line of rugged, intelligent, lightweight power management solutions, which includes the SPM‑622 squad power manager that dramatically reduces the number and variety of batteries needed by today’s warfighter.

This power manager has recently achieved ‘Safe-To- Fly’ certification by the United States Air Force for C-130H Hercules and C-130J Super Hercules. The certification means troops can plug their power managers into the aircraft’s power outlets while in flight, without any danger of interference with the aircraft’s systems. Said Ray Summers, director of military sales at Protonex: ‘‘The application of our power management solutions to the needs of EOD, medical, directed fires, unmanned systems, and SOF communications teams in the US has also spread to international Allied unit test and evaluation programmes.’’ Also on display is the ABC‑812 adaptive battery.
