KuPS – Portable Pwr Supply installed and operative on ISS


 November, 6th 2012 – Simultaneously to the ELITE-S2 scientific session execution another Kayser Italia equipment for ISS has been installed and powered. It is the Portable Pwr Supply (also known as “KuPS”) launched with Progress 46p in January this year that was setup in the European Columbus Module.

The Portable Pwr Supply is able to convert the 120VDC from ISS to 28VDC and distribute it to up to three different payloads. Its first selected experiment has finally reached the ISS and it has been connected during a single installation session. The experiment, powered by the Portable Pwr Supply, will monitor the radiation environment of Columbus Module during the next six months.
