|Lex Products receives U.S. Marine Corps contract to develop intelligent power distribution units.|
Lex Products Corp. announced that the U.S. Marine Corps has awarded the company a contract for the design and development of Advanced Mobile Electric Power Distribution System (AMEPDIS). AMEPDIS is the enhanced version of the MEPDIS-R portable electric power distribution system, which Lex Products has supplied to the all Marine Corps forward operating bases since 2004.
MEPDIS-R is a commercial-based modular component system consisting of portable power distribution boxes and interconnecting power cables.
AMEPDIS will incorporate technology designed to add features such as load prioritization, load shedding and automatic phase balancing. Improvements to the MEPDIS-R line will include fault monitoring and isolation thereby adding safety and reliability to the system. This new system can achieve active load management as a result of its load prioritization and shedding capability.
