Merlin-Handheld TrellisWare TW-950
Radio Power Adapter

(Merlin-HH TW-950)

EXPORT POWER TO RUN AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT WHILE POWERING THE RADIO AND CHARGING THE BATTERY

The Merlin-Handheld TW-950 RPA’s primary functions are to power the attached radio and charge the attached battery, while exporting auxiliary power to run application-specific equipment such as end user devices, GPS devices, or cameras.

Functionality and capacities are further enhanced with new USB OTG data pass-through and power scavenging capabilities. This helps extend the battery runtime and allow for recharging and data transfer on the go. Operators can now have the ability to connect the TW-950 back to a soldier system hub with just one cable for power and data.

The unit configures automatically to inputs and outputs, requiring no controls while proprietary MPPT algorithms ensure maximum compatibility with fielded solar panels.

The adapter can also operate in a battery eliminator configuration while connected to input power and allows for battery hot-swapping. Users can complete battery change-out and maintenance without load interruption.
