PowerSTAT Portable Case
PowerSTAT being ported
Pure Power that's Ready to Roll Uninterruptible Power Supply
Take it inside or outside.
Use PowerSTAT to provide 120-volt AC power indoors, where generators cannot run safely. The weather resistant case allows for outdoor operation as well.
Capacity is high.
Power a computer, refrigeration equipment or telecommunications gear for up to a day, or even more, due to PowerSTAT’s robust 160-AH battery pack and 1800-watt output. Runtime depends upon the total wattage of the equipment that’s plugged in. Add outboard batteries to multiply PowerSTAT's runtime.
You can't get a more quiet operation.
PowerSTAT produces virtually no noise when it is charging up or providing power.
Quick turnaround for re-use. PowerSTAT recharges fully in about 10 hours at any standard AC outlet (20A circuit). Much less time is required, if the unit is only partially discharged. This means you can shuttle multiple units from powered to un-powered locations in an emergency to maintain the operation of mission-critical equipment.
Output is pure.
Run microprocessor-based devices such as computers and even sensitive medical equipment on PowerSTAT’s pure sine-wave output. No fossil fuels are utilized, so there is no exhaust or pollution produced.
Serves a variety of backup needs.
PowerSTAT can serve as an online power backup for key equipment. Should AC power drop, PowerSTAT kicks in instantly to maintain the equipment’s operation. When AC power is restored, PowerSTAT will charge its batteries automatically to get ready for the next use.
The fuel is electricity.
PowerSTAT can function in emergencies when electricity is available but fuels such as gasoline or diesel are in short supply.
