The field proven TacticalPower line of AC and DC power conditioning products is ideally suited for applications requiring high-reliability, rugged construction, compact size and light weight design. The TacticalPower line is readily deployable worldwide. They are equally suited for use in airborne, vehicular, shipboard, field deployed or fixed locations with controlled or uncontrolled environments.

The Tactical Inverter ETI0018 Series was initially designed for use with military vehicles and aircraft or any other equipment that has a 12 or 24 VDC source. Multiple input and output connector options are available. The basic input configuration provides two quick connect devices, one being a NATO Slave connector identical to those found on military vehicles such as the HMMWV.

Unlike other inverters that require you to mount the inverter and then bolt up a cable, the TacticalPower inverter systems can be quickly setup in the field without any tools. Using either the supplied cable or a standard NATO Slave cable, a quick connection can be made to the HMMWV DC power bringing AC online in less than 2 minutes. If the supplied cable is used, the NATO connector on the TacticalPower unit can be used as a DC power port for other devices using the NATO Slave cable.

With typical inverters, you have only two (2) outlets, limiting the number of devices you can connect. Conversely, the TacticalPower basic output configuration provides four (4) outlets in the briefcase and universal mount versions or six (6) outlets in the transit case version, each widely spaced to allow for oversize plugs and transformer power supply modules.

The heavy-duty briefcases, transit cases and universal mount chassis occupy a minimum of space while protecting the equipment during transit or during field use. The rugged handles aid in lifting and latches secure the cover in place during transport. In the transit case version, the cover also holds the supplied input cable.

Internally, all major components are well secured and electrically insulated to prevent damage due to shock and vibration. Most fielded inverters have internal cooling fans, but no air filters. This results in the internal components eventually overheating from dirt buildup on the internal components. On the contrary, the Tactical Inverter units are equipped with an intake air filter that is easily taken off to wash when needed, thus protecting the equipment from sand and dust contamination.

With typical inverters, there is an input fuse buried inside the equipment chassis. This requires having to have spare fuses available and having to tear the unit apart to replace a blown fuse. On the contrary, the TacticalPower units incorporate a double pole input DC circuit breaker.  This eliminates the fuse issues while providing added personnel safety, equipment protection and ease of maintenance. Further, a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) and safety ground connection provide added safety protection to personnel from grounding hazards.

Overall, the Tactical Inverter line is uniquely qualified for reliable vehicle, airborne, shipboard or land based C4ISR operations combining advanced modular design features with highly reliable construction. For a list of comparison features, go to Inverter Notes.
