Rugged PDU Provides 300 Amps of Intelligent Solid-State Power Control

Bohemia, New York (October 2012) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces its first Power Distribution Units (PDUs) in the RP-20S1X family of stackable, configurable devices for 28 VDC systems. The High Power Solid-State Power Controllers (SSPCs) provide four independent 75 Amp load channels (300 Amp total current capability) to distribute and control power to four independent subsystems. The PDUs offer channel paralleling for high current loads, and feature independent remote control of individual channels and groups. The rugged PDUs are available with MIL-DTL-38999 connectors or power stud interfaces and are tested to IP-67, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-STD-461E, and MIL-STD-810F.

Benefits include:

  • Reliable Solid-State High Current Load Control
  • Remote Control via J1939 CAN Bus or RS-485
  • Diagnostic & Prognostic Data (Voltage, Current, and Temperature)
  • Automated Power Control Simplifies Crew Operation
  • Improved Mission Safety and Reduced Life-Cycle Cost

DDC’s Solid-State Power Controllers provide intelligent power management advantages such as accurate over-current protection, programmability, load monitoring, and network control to simplify vehicle power management. DDC’s SSPCs provide Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) savings, with higher reliability and longer life compared to electromechanical circuit breakers and relays.

“The RP-20S1X series of Solid-State Power Controllers provide a flexible solution addressing the demands of high current load control on military systems. The PDUs are part of DDC’s third-generation SSPC product family, which has been developed with the benefit of 20-years of battle-tested experience”, stated Steve Rood Goldman, DDC’s Marketing Manager.
