Iris Technology will be at SOFIC 2019
in Tampa, Florida May 20–23.

Stop by booth 344 and check out our newest product developments and innovations addressing the expanding power needs of today’s warfighter.


Merlin-Handheld Battery Eliminator

Compared to other handheld device battery eliminators, the Merlin-HandHeld offers greater power handling capability, less noise, and cooler operating temperatures, all without compromising the radio system.

Merlin-Handheld Radio Power Adapter TW-950 Shadow

All of the same benefits and functionality of our Merlin-Handheld uninterruptible DC Power slice, now available for the TrellisWare TW-950 Shadow handheld radio.

  • Hot-swap feature—battery change-out and maintenance without load interruption.
  • Automatic configuration to inputs and outputs—requires no controls.
  • LED indicators—display input power, state of charge, battery charging, and battery health status.
  • More power handling capability compared to other handheld device battery eliminators and power adapters.
  • Unique ability to export power to peripheral devices.

Vulture Power Scavenger

Initially designed for a seamless integration with the US Army Nett Warrior System, the Vulture connects in-line between a “system battery” and the rest of the system. “Scavenged” power is drawn from nearly any DC source, used to offset discharging from the system battery, and will charge the battery if there is excess power available.

Merlin-Handheld Battery Eliminator

As a power adapter for handheld radios and other compatible equipment, our battery eliminator with the radio and receives input from a variety of DC and AC power sources with appropriate accessories.

Its primary function is to power the attached radio. The unit configures automatically to inputs and outputs, requiring no controls. Input power is displayed with a status indicator LED.

What sets the Merlin-Handheld Battery Eliminator apart is its thermal and electrical interference considerations. It’s design features pair high thermal dissipation with ultra quiet and well shielded electronics.

This results in less heat discomfort for the user, wearing cooler components in their kit, no reduction in radio range, and no unexpected radio shutdowns due to overheating.

Compact and rugged, our battery eliminator surpasses MIL-STDs 810G, 461F, and 1275D. This allows the radio system or connected device to be used in all conditions and environments.

Compared to other handheld device battery eliminators, the Merlin-Handheld offers greater power handling capability, less noise, and cooler operating temperatures, all without compromising the radio system.

Merlin-Handheld Radio Power Adapter TW-950 Shadow

The Merlin-Handheld Radio Power Adapter™ TW-950 is an Uninterruptible DC Power slice for the TrellisWare TW-950 Shadow handheld radio. It interfaces with both the radio and battery and receives input from a variety of DC and AC power sources with appropriate accessories. Primary functions are to; power the attached radio, charge the attached battery and supply auxiliary output power.

What sets the Merlin-Handheld RPA apart is its capability to export power to run application-specific equipment such as end user devices and other peripheral gear, all while charging the battery. The Merlin-Handheld RPA serves as an Uninterrupted Power Source (UPS) for the radio, and can also operate in a battery eliminator configuration.

Boasting a hot-swap feature, the user can perform battery change-out and maintenance without load interruption. The unit configures automatically to inputs and outputs and requires no controls. LED indicators display the status of input power, state of charge, battery charging, and battery health.

Maximum Peak Power Tracking algorithms efficiently convert power from solar panels to support the load and/or charge batteries for power storage.

Both compact and rugged, the unit enables the radio system and connected devices to be used in all conditions and environments. Compared to other handheld device battery eliminators or power adapters, the Merlin-Handheld RPA offers more power handling capability and the unique ability to export power to peripheral devices.

Vulture Power Scavenger

Initially designed for a seamless integration with the US Army Nett Warrior System, the Vulture connects in-line between a wearable “system battery”, a Conformal Wearable Battery (CWB) or 2590 and the rest of the system (radios, DAGR, EUD).

Powered by any DC source in voltage range 5-46 V (including solar), the Power Scavenger can deliver a maximum of 3 A at 16.8 V to assist the battery / system loads. There is a 5 A limit out to the system load.

“Scavenged” power is used to offset discharging from the system battery, and will charge the battery if there is excess power available, as a SMBus Level 3 charger.

Currently designed with program specific connectors, variants with different connectors could be produced.

The Vulture Power Scavenger is wearable and easily mounts to MOLLE with a 2 x 1 footprint in the included pouch.

The unit is designed to be MIL-STD-810G, 461F, 1472F, 1275D compliant.
