Deployed stationary Marine facilities are equipped with a myriad of electronic-communications equipment all requiring continuous power. Generally, power from portable generator units are not considered stable however, current inventories reflect a dire need for a versatile, robust uninterrupted power supply (UPS) tailored to field applications. SHOT has developed a surprisingly simple yet innovative UPS solution using the most recent advances in battery charging technology and power supply miniature packaging. The SHOT Marine Portable Power Unit (MPPU) is a small, field deployable intelligent charging platform that can operate in harsh environments from a variety of voltage sources utilizing common BB-2590/U batteries for both as a primary UPS source and for individual hot-swapping as necessary. Furthermore, the SHOT MPPU is designed to accept "Smart" lithium batteries utilizing advanced SMBus technology. The SHOT MPPU is a fully automated unit requiring minimal human interface. Simple display menus and operator instructions are presented via organic LED' or OLED's which are clear, easy to read displays even in the brightest of sunlight. The SHOT MPPU having a dual role as UPS and as a provider of transportable hot-swap battery power is the logical, next generation uninterrupted power supply.
