Bergenfield, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/23/2021 --Nova's new Ultra Lightweight Galaxy-Series rugged, military UPS systems are high-reliability power sources specifically designed for demanding aircraft and UAV applications in high shock, vibration, humidity, and EMI environments in compliance to RTCA/DO-160, MIL-STD-461, and MIL-STD-810. These rugged UPS models utilize True On-Line technology, offering maximum field-proven reliability for severe environment and high reliability applications.

These are the UPSs of choice for all branches of the US Armed Forces, Boeing, EADS, and many other high profile airborne applications worldwide. Typically, these rugged UPS models have aircraft power input of 115/200 VAC, 400Hz, three-phase wye, although single-phase input is also available at no extra cost. Select units were tested successfully by Boeing and Rockwell Collins to meet RTCA/DO-160G for:

- Rapid Decompression: Section 4 Cabin Pressure (8K) to Max Operating Alt (35K) in 15 sec; Hold for 10 min

- Crash Safety Sustained: Section 7, Cat B – Up = 3.0g – Down = 6.0g – Fwd = 9.0g – Aft = 1.5g – Side =4.0g

- Explosive Atmosphere: Non-Ignition Test Sec. 9.6.2, Cat E
