Inergy introduces the Powerblade at ITC's Cybersecurity Energy Connected 2017 Conference
Inergy Solar, one of Idaho’s promising clean-technology startups and the makers of the Kodiak Solar Generator, a finalist for Idaho’s 2016 Consumer Product of the Year award, introduced the Inergy Powerblade solution today at the Cybersecurity Energy Connected 2017 Conference in Boise, Idaho. The Powerblade packs 3 kilowatt-hours of power in a two rack unit (2RU) space and fits in most server racks. The Powerblade may be charged using the standard AC outlet or with solar panels and will run your servers for hours.
The Inergy Powerblade power source is the result of collaboration with Idaho State University’s (ISU) National Information Assurance Training and Education Center (NIATEC). It debuted as part of the PANDORA Mobile Computing Platform. PANDORA was designed and developed by NIATEC as a portable server platform for emergency and off-grid operations. The innovative Inergy Powerblade design significantly reduced the weight of the system. This rugged “system-in-a-box” can even be dropped from a 3-story building and still keep running even when the power is out.
The PANDORA System with the Powerblade solution was unveiled at the Cybersecurity Energy Connected 2017 Conference as a cyber and energy security innovation resulting from a public and private partnership in Eastern Idaho.
