The Nickl Intelligent Power Switch IPS-STE was designed to start and to gracefully shut down a computer with one control signal.

For example, it allows to control up to two computers via the ignition key or the centralized door locking system. The computer can be powered-up if the engineer opens the centralized door locking and it can be shut-down and powered-down when the engineer leaves the car. Up to two computers can be controlled, such as a real-time and a visualizing computer.

The Nickl IPS is available either as complete control box with MIL-C-5015 connectors or Lemo connectors or as a single PCB which can be mounted in a existent computer-rack.

Due to its capability to switch up to 30 A and its wide operating voltage range, it is able to switch almost all DC power supplies of computers in a R&D vehicle.

The Power Supply

Directly connect to the battery of your car or aeroplane. The built-in power supply offers a wide input supply range of 9..36V in most of the cases. In addition, you are released from ground-loops since the power supply of the SunLight and RuggedLight series is galvanically decoupled.
