MOD Chooses RBSC150s

Red Box’s continued success with the MOD

UK company, Red Box International Limited, are extremely proud

The Ministry Of Defence have just taken delivery of the second batch of the Red Box RBSC150, 150A continuous DC power supplies. They are being used to power their latest communication equipment so it was imperative that the units were of the highest build quality combined with reliability. This is why the Ministry Of Defence chose Red Box to supply the RBSC150.

Due to the equipment being used in a hostile environment down time is not an option, therefore, the Ministry Of Defence have now taken delivery of the Red Box PPS Battery back up unit to support each of the RBSC150’s.

Red Box International’s Managing Director, Allan Ross, says “We are delighted that the Ministry of Defence have such confidence in our systems that they continue to order more units for use in an environment where failure is not an option”.
