Whether enabling free Wi-Fi for buses, or maintaining surveillance on maritime deployments, you need to rely on battery power. Any battery-powered deployments will face the following challenges:
Voltage Regulation and Boost
The SD-PMU can take power from sources with low or fluctuating voltage and turn them into a reliable streams of 52V power.
Inability to Troubleshoot
Remote Voltage Monitoring
The SD-PMU records battery voltage information and sends it over the IoT Cloud for remote monitoring.
Low Voltage Disconnect
If the battery cannot deliver sufficient voltage, then the SD-PMU will automatically shut off access to the battery after a predefined delay.
3 Devices in 1
The SD-PMU can reduce setup costs, operational complexity, and maintenance expenses by performing the functions of three devices: a low-voltage disconnect monitor, a DC-DC converter, and a DC distribution
panel. Rather than installing three enclosures and connecting them through cables, installation now simply involves connecting the batteries and an Ethernet connection to the SD-PMU.
Vehicle Deployment Connect the SD-PMU to your car battery to deliver reliable 52V power. Connect the LAN port to your router in order to remotely monitor battery output via the IoT Cloud.
Mission Critical OOBM* A secondary router can be connected to the LAN port. This keeps the SD-PMU is accessible even when the main router loses connectivity, and enables power scheduling for the main router.
* OOBM: Out-of-Band Management
With the SD-PMU, you could determine which port receives power first upon boot up. This is useful for deployments where the operation of the second device is dependent on that of the first. Use the IoT Cloud to remotely determine the boot up sequence.
Pepxim IoT Cloud
The Pepxim IoT cloud provides a number of tools for remote troubleshooting. See the connectivity status and power usage of all your devices on a single screen.
Retreive voltage, wattage, current, and device temperature information from months ago. This making troubleshooting significantly easier.
Batch Management From any web browser, you can set voltage, current, and temperature thresholds. If a threshold is reached, the port or device will shutdown. The IoT cloud also enables you to configure and schedule firmware updates for whole groups of Pepxim devices, saving significant time.
The following models can be powered by the SD-PMU’s DC output:
MAX HD4 (HW1-3)
MAX HD2 (HW1-5)
MAX HD2 Mini
MAX BR1 ENT
MAX Transit/Transit Duo
MAX HD2/HD4 with MediaFast
