Naval Hull, Mechanical and Electrical (HM&E) – 440VAC Input Power Conversion / UPS

Proven, trusted power conversion products used in Hull, Mechanical and Electrical (HM&E) applications throughout the surface fleet.

440VACOur 440VAC power conversion is the backbone of both platform and mission systems throughout the surface fleet. Our HM&E power conversion equipment supports both individual and groups of platform and combat systems with proven reliability. Depending on the unit, our HM&E products are available in bulkhead, deck or rack mount configurations. A key feature of this equipment is the ability to meet shock and vibration standards without the need for special mounting provisions, giving it the flexibility to be installed where needed to support critical systems.

Leonardo DRS’ Naval HM&E power conversion equipment complies with the following MIL-SPEC requirements:

  • MIL-STD-1399, Section 300B, Type 1
  • MIL-S-901D, Grade A, Class 1
  • MIL-STD-167-1A
  • MIL-STD-461

Naval Zonal Uninterruptible Power Supply – N+1 Redundant UPS

N+1 Redundant UPSThe future of shipboard uninterruptible power supplies

Leonardo DRS has leveraged its experience in 440VAC power conversion to develop the next step forward in shipboard UPS reliability and availability. Our Zonal UPS features N+1 redundant hot-swappable 2kVA power and battery modules, and manual and automatic bypass, ensuring continuous uninterrupted operation of the load. Nominally rated at 8kVA, 450VAC, 60Hz, 3 phase input / output, the capacity of the Zonal UPS has the potential to be increased or decreased in 2kVA increments.

Not only does the Zonal UPS raise the bar in terms of reliability and availability, its modular design can greatly simplify the logistics burden of supporting multiple UPS manufacturers and models throughout the platform. By employing common power and battery modules, training and sparing requirements can be significantly reduced. Add in to this battery health monitoring, which can reduce the need to pre-emptively replace batteries prior to the end of their useful life.

Leonardo DRS’ Zonal UPS complies with the following MIL-SPEC requirements:

  • MIL-DTL-24765
  • MIL-STD-461
  • MIL-STD-167-1A
  • MIL-STD-901E, Grade A, Class II
  • MIL-STD-1399, Section 300B, Type 1
