Vest Power Manager
The VPM-402 provides full-size data and power management in a vest-sized package.
The Vest Power Manager seamlessly handles data pass through, prioritizes battery usage, reports power levels, and automatically alerts the operator to any issues. And because it integrates data and power in a single device, it eliminates the need for additional batteries and separate power and data cables.
The VPM-402’s smart USB hub interconnects all data enabled devices, while also enabling constant operability of tablets, radios, GPS receivers, and other electronic devices from a single battery. Because the VPM combines power and data management in a single compact device, it eliminates the need for additional cables that take up space and add complexity, weight, entanglement hazards, and administrative burden. Reducing the number and variety of batteries that the warfighter has to carry is another significant advantage of the VPM-402 – saving additional weight, complexity and admin hassle.
Our Vest Power Manager is the most user-friendly solution to managing power and data for military situational awareness systems currently available on the market. It is also rugged, reliable, easy-to-use, and operationally proven in use with the US Army, USMC, US SOCOM, and international allies.
