Share Article

Lex Products unveiled a new line of rugged portable power distribution units specific to the military.

MT Series

'The MT Series Portable Distribution Units are developed using the heavy-duty, molded rubber, Terrapin Station enclosure to maximize durability for extended use in harsh environments,' said Mike Scala, President of Lex Products Corp.

The Lex Products line of MT Series Power Distribution Units is designed to maximize safety and convenience for today’s warfighter. The MT Series’ lightweight, durable and insulated enclosure delivers power to any system where a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) unit is required to expand portable power distribution.

“The MT Series Portable Distribution Units are developed using the heavy-duty, molded rubber, Terrapin Station enclosure to maximize durability for extended use in harsh environments,” said Mike Scala, President of Lex Products Corp. “The rugged construction of the MT Series specifically accommodates the power needs of today’s soldier and represents a strong return on investment, since many competitive boxes are composed of materials that are highly susceptible to damage such as painted steel.”

The MT Series is a heavy-duty, molded rubber enclosure with various inputs and receptacles with circuit breaker protection. All models feature input and feed thru devices of the same type. Input configurations include MIL-DTL-22992 Class L, IEC 60309 Pin & Sleeve, and NEMA L21-30 Twist-Lock. Three output configurations offer 20 Amp duplex receptacles, and one configuration offers locking receptacles, all of which are open-neutral GFCI protected. Applicable overcurrent protection is provided via hydraulic magnetic branch-rated circuit breakers.

Unprecedented Durability:
The rugged and weather-resistant construction enables the box to withstand rough treatment and harsh environments while delivering years of trouble-free performance. Built to outlast comparable painted steel boxes, the heavy-duty molded rubber enclosure and lid are fully insulated, as well as resistant to shock, impact and corrosion for enhanced safety. Circuit breakers are located under a heavy-duty rubber, water resistant lid for added protection. Receptacles and inlets are protected from dirt and moisture intrusion by heavy-duty, spring-loaded covers.

Lightweight, Compact and Useful:
The MT Series is designed to meet the needs of today’s warfighter. All sides of the enclosure serve a specific purpose and present a more compact unit that will not take up valuable space when deployed or stowed. While competing models offer four to six single NEMA 5-20 receptacles, the MT Series utilizes duplex receptacles, giving the warfighter more locations to plug in equipment. The unique lightweight design also enables the unit to be carried by one person for increased mobility. Adjustable legs provide additional versatility to change the operational height from three to six inches. The rounded edges of MT Series will not damage surrounding fabrics, cables, or packing straps while being deployed, stowed or transported.

Enhanced Safety:
MT Series Portable Power Distribution boxes utilize either cULus Listed or NEMA 3R weather-resistant design for safe and reliable use in outdoor environments. Hydraulic magnetic branch-rated circuit breakers provide overcurrent protection for safe operation and will not trip due to ambient temperatures. Weather resistant open-neutral GFCI modules help to prevent unsafe operating conditions and nuisance tripping.

Strong Return on Investment:
The rugged construction and heavy-duty molded rubber enclosure deliver extended longevity for a meaningful, long-term return on investment.
