Newmar Power, a player in the power electronics solutions for telecom and public safety, announced a new line of products aimed at more extreme uses.

The new line of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) is called the Rugged AC UPS Series and will prevent system interruptions due to power failures for telecom, public safety and intelligent transportation systems. For the transportation industry, this system is specifically designed to power-critical hardware that sometimes endure unpredictable climate extremes, including traffic lights, e-tolling systems and digital signage.

The new design provides battery-backup for power grids working in extreme environments and can handle temperatures ranging from -40 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit. Because temperature extremes can impact battery life, the Rugged AC UPS features a built-in temperature-compensated battery charger to help extend battery life.

The Rugged AC UPS also features a wide AC input voltage range of 88 to 152 volts AC and a wide range automatic voltage regulation (AVR), which allows the UPS to operate normally without transferring to backup mode during temporary voltage irregularities.

"Newmar Power is already a trusted name in the telecom and public safety space, so we are very excited to enter new segments of the transportation sector including ITS/traffic," says Richard Gaudet, president of network and industrial power business at Mission Critical Electronics, the parent company of Newmar Power.
