PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus Overview
The new PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus is our ultimate high power rechargeable power supply and distribution platform. Engineered using our 30 years of power supply experience, this new two rack space rechargeable power supply will provide you with the ultimate power solution for your sound or video cart.
LiFE BATTERY PACK:
The heart of the system is our custom, triple redundant 12.8 volt, 60 amp hour Lithium Iron Phosphate battery pack. Each of the three onboard 20 amp battery packs contain individual cells that were chosen for their high capacity, and ability to be rapidly charged or discharged. While other cells can only be charged and discharged at a 0.7C amp hour rate, ours are rated at a full 3C rate. Additionally, our cells are factory measured, graded and matched into precision sets for a better quality battery. Unlike other brands, the PSC LiFE battery pack contains built in cell balancing electronics for a long life.
AC SUPPLY and CHARGER:
The PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus is built around a highly integrated 600 watt, switching power supply/charger. The AC input is fully filtered for common mode and differential noise, harmonic content and spikes. This supply contains a built in current limiting function to further protect itself under extreme conditions. In addition, our charger has been designed to provide clean, quiet charging power so as to not cause you noise problems in the field.
POWER DISTRIBUTION and OUTPUT FILTERING:
The DC path of our Power Star LiFE Zeus has been designed to provide clean, quiet, reliable DC power for all of your audio and video equipment needs. Each output has its own dedicated output filter that contains both audio and RF frequency filters. Each output is also individually Poly-fuse protected and monitored via easy to read front panel LED indication. There are a total of eleven outputs: two (2) 8 Amp Outputs, two (2) 5 Amp Outputs and seven (7) 3 Amp Outputs. To lower internal power losses and extend battery life, our circuit boards are made with 4oz copper, 4 times the industry standard and a PSC exclusive feature!
Every PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus comes with a small remote control box. The use of the remote control allows the Power Star LiFE to be mounted down and out of the way on your sound cart if desired. This remote contains an additional set of “On and Off” controls, an additional battery “Fuel Gauge”, digital LED Volt and Current meters and also four (4) USB charging ports. The PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus can be operated with or without the remote control box.
The PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus is convection cooled without the use of any fans.
The PSC Power Star LiFE Zeus is equipped with multiple point rack rail mounting brackets. These brackets can be mounted from either the front or the rear of the Power Star LiFE Zeus and can be offset to provide clearance for XLR connectors in tight rack space environments.
