Widget Wednesday:  PTX Vest Power Manager, VPM-402

The PTX VPM-402 is the intelligent, rugged, “man-worn”, combined data and power management solution.

The VPM’s smart USB hub interconnects user-worn data-enabled devices, as well as enabling their constant operability from a single battery. The VPM manages 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 separate power and data cables –reducing The Battery Burden and streamlining the user’s gear load.

The VPM-402 uses standard USB protocols to pass data between connected devices – regardless of manufacturer – providing backward and forward technology integration. Like its “big brother, the Squad Power Manager, the Vest Power Manager also scavenges from any available power source – vehicle, aircraft, solar, etc. – to power devices and charge batteries.

Originally developed as a central component for the US Marine Corps’ “Marine Austere Patrolling System” program, the compact-sized VPM-402’s full-sized power and data management capability is now in use among JTAC and other extended fires teams with US and Partner Nation forces.
