Plug-&-Play BackPlane Design

The PowergridM design utilizes the latest advancements in power management
technologies to dramatically enhance operational flexibility and performance.

The First UPS BackPlane Stacking System on the market

The PowergridM design utilizes the latest advancements in power management technologies to dramatically enhance operational flexibility and performance to include advanced computer controlled inverters, Auto Sensing Auto Switching, AC/DC Input Power Controls, advanced LIP battery technology, SNMP status monitoring, Load Balancing Capability and Intelligent Synchronized Stacking.

It has been specifically developed to address a wide variety of technical and operational challenges normally found in the Military Environment

To provide a highly flexible and robust method for establishing an intelligent and integrated power management system within the space limited confines of shelter and vehicle based platforms. This system is based on a Plug-&-Play UPS BackPlane Module (BPM) that consolidates all of the Input/output power connections and associated alarm and network connections for the integrated power management stack.

Plug-&-Play BackPlane Special Features

The AJ’s Power Source PowergridM BackPlane Stacking System (BPM) has been specifically developed to address a wide variety of technical and operational challenges normally found in the development of portable shelter and vehicle based C3 systems and environments. PowergridM is a modular design based on a common set of power components that can be configured and re-configured to meet nearly any mobile or deployable operational requirement. The PowergridM design utilizes the latest advancements in power management technologies to dramatically enhance operational flexibility and performance to include advanced computer controlled inverters, auto sensing and switching, AC/DC input power controls, advanced LIP battery technology, SNMP status monitoring, and Load Balancing intelligent synchronized stacking.

To provide a highly flexible and robust method for establishing an intelligent and integrated power management system within the space limited confines of shelter and vehicle based platforms, AJ’s Power Source has developed the first Rugged UPS BackPlane Stacking System. This system is based on a Plug-&-Play UPS BackPlane Module (BPM) that consolidates all of the Input/Output power connections and associated alarm and network connections facilitating the creation of an Integrated Power Management System (IPMS). The BPM hosts individual 1U mating slots for the plug-in and stack integration of PowerGridM UPS (AC or DC outputs), Battery Expansion, and DC Power Supply modules. Each slot in the BPM is agnostic and can mate with any of the available plug-in modules. Once a module has been plugged into an available slot, it is automatically integrated into the Intelligent Stacking System. The BPM can be ordered in various slot sizes from 3-Slot (3U) to 5-Slot (5U) with the ability to link multiple backplanes together for up to 10U of synchronized power services.

The PowergridM BackPlane Stacking System provides a complete mobile power solution is a single Rackmount footprint. This system is extremely small but packs a major punch with up to 6000 watts in only 5U of rack space. This system will provide clean controlled AC and DC power and full battery support from any vehicle, generator, or shore power source. Its flexible design can accommodate direct connections for supported equipment, connections for distributed Power Distribution Units (PDU) for distribution of power services within complex racking systems, or direct feed to a power breaker panel for in-shelter/vehicle power distribution.

The PowergridM BPM is designed with an extended air handling system for supercharging airflow into and out of the attached power modules within the stack. In combination with the air handling capability within each attached UPS, BXM, or AC/DC Converter, this extended cooling system allows a PowergridM BackPlane Stack to survive in tight shelter rack locations where hot spots and low air flow are common.

The PowergridM BackPlane Stacking System is designed for operational resiliency. By stacking UPS modules in a BackPlane configuration leveraging the PowergridM Load Balancing design, if a unit should fail, the operator is notified via SNMP based network signaling, and the adjacent units load share up to carry the load with no disruption to the attached equipment. By balancing the operational load and the IPMS configuration, both resilient and fully redundant configurations can be achieved. This unique capability allows the user to quickly configure a integrated power management system that will provide non-stop power services for critical applications. In addition, the PowergridM Product Line is designed to meet the MIL-STD 810 requirements for shake and vibration and to exceed 100,000 hours of non-stop operation without failure further extending the systems operational availability.

The PowergridM BackPlane Stacking System is designed for tight space-limited environments. The BPM slots are “Hot Swap” allowing for remove and replace activities regardless of operational mode. In addition, PowergridM hosts a unique “front access only” design for maintenance. Utilizing a stainless steel slip pin design on the rear bracket connections, UPS, BXM, or DC Inverter units can be removed and replaced (Plug-&-Play) from the front of the stack with no rear access required. For resilient operations, needed maintenance activities can be performed without powering down the IMPS or attached systems with a normal Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) activity requiring less than 3 minutes without operational system down time. To further simplify maintenance activities, the fan assemblies within the BPM have been designed as a field replaceable module with an average MTTR of 5 minutes without power down.
