Rugged Outdoor Applications

Solutions for the most challenging environments

blizzarddesertWhile most UPS systems and batteries live out their service lives in temperature controlled rooms, some need to live out their service lives in rugged outdoor applications with harsh or remote conditions that threaten their longevity and reliability. These hard-to-reach locations, where devices may need to be self-powered and battery replacement and recharging is extremely difficult, may also be places that experience extreme temperature swings. In these rugged conditions, a failure can be even more challenging to repair, and an uninterrupted power supply even more critical, so it is important to start with the right equipment.

Power Solutions offers many options for rugged outdoor applications. Our manufacturers have UPS Systems, Batteries and Enclosures that can meet any environmental challenge and help you provide the power your organization needs.

Our products are designed and built to withstand Rugged Outdoor Applications such as:
  • Temperature extremes
  • Remote or hard to access areas
  • Moisture
  • Salt air
  • Insects, animals, vandalism

Deka Bateries from East Penn Manufacturingdeka-fahrenheit-ht145et

Deka Fahrenheit Series – Elevated temperatures have always been one of lead-acid battery’s more formidable foes, requiring costly cooling systems installation and constant energy demands. Along with the cost associated in purchasing and installing cooling units, there’s the continual cost and energy loss from powering these systems. A breakthrough in a heat-tolerant VRLA monobloc battery design the Deka Fahrenheit survives up to 3 times longer in temperatures of 60°C / 140°F – far beyond the life of a normal VRLA battery. Innovative features through an Exclusive Thermal Management Technology System provide a product that significantly reduces the need for outside plant cooling systems to save considerable cost, conserve energy, and reduce the overall sites’ CO2 footprint.
