Pelican™ Case Protects Corder Power's Portable Military Power Solution

1510 LOCTORRANCE, Calif. – June 13, 2008 The 1400 Pelican Protector™ Case has been chosen to protect Corder Power’s CPS-0001 Corderized™ Power Supply (CPS).

Weighing in at a mere 16.3 lbs., the Corderized Power Supply is a versatile, mobile AC/DC plug and play power supply that is armored in a Pelican 1400 Protector™ Case. The CPS supplies 12V DC, 24V DC and 120V AC power simultaneously in one light weight, rugged and portable package.

“Pelican is proud to not only provide virtually indestructible cases and flashlights straight to the military, but to take it a step further and protect mission critical products manufactured by other companies, especially in this case with Corder Power’s innovative and versatile portable power solution,” said Mark Rolfes, Vice President of Sales for Pelican.

The CPS has a wide range of applications and is compatible with many military vehicles, including any vehicle that operates on a core 24V DC power system.

Compatible military vehicles include:

  • CUCV (Chevy Blazer)
  • HMMWV (Humvee)
  • 2.5 and 5 ton trucks
  • M-113 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC)
  • Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV)
  • M1 Series of Abrams Main Battle Tank
  • Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (MRAP)
  • M2/M3 Series of Bradley Fighting Vehicles (BFV’s)

  • “I proudly served in the US military and came to depend on Pelican Protector™ Cases for light-weight, virtually indestructible protection for my vital gear,” said Justin Corder of Corder Power. “So when it came to building our rugged “plug and play” power source, their cases were the only solution we considered. When you inform military service members that the CPS is encased in a Pelican Protector™ Case they know that it will take a beating.  We look forward to working with Pelican to deploy more industry-leading products in the future.”

    Pelican Protector™ Cases boast a fully-stackable, trademarked “Dual Band” design and a cell-core construction that protects sensitive equipment from some of the harshest conditions on Earth.  Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust-proof/waterproof seal and an automatic pressure equalization valve that will stop moisture from entering the case and prevent vacuum lock so it’s easier to open the case at any altitude. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases in the linefeature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 400 pounds, but open with a light pull. As with all Pelican products, their cases arebacked by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You break it, we replace it…forever.”™
