Schaefer Announces New Rack Mount Configurations for The Raptor Series COTS/MOTS Power Converters

Ideal choice for harsh military applications

December 7, 2012 - Hopkinton, MA - Schaefer, Inc., a manufacturer of highly reliable power conversion systems, announces new 19" rack mount configurations for their Raptor Series of military power supplies. The Raptor's robust construction and high reliability make it an ideal choice for harsh military applications such as shelters, armored vehicles, avionics, naval and open air applications.


The Raptor Series' output voltage range can provide DC outputs from 12VDC to 52.5VDC, or 270VDC, with power ratings from 1200W to 3360W. Single and three-phase input ranges span from 88VAC-265VAC. Other input or output voltages are available upon request. The Series specifies high efficiency (85% nominal) and high power factor correction.

The Series meets MIL-STD-810C/D/E for operating temperature conditions, vibration, and shock and also meets other critical MIL-STD-461C/462C ratings for EMI, Navy MIL-STD-1399 and aircraft electrical power MIL-STD-704D, and environmental test methods.

The Rackmount Raptor's comprehensive protection package features input AC circuit breakers, Input over/under voltage protection, output current limit, output over voltage protection, low output voltage alarm, and thermal protection with auto recovery.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
