PRC Professional Series: "The Titan 6000" Mobile Charging Platform
Whether your application is cinematography, agriculture, industry, or military, there's no room for error when it's time to deploy. That's why the Titan 6000 uses only the highest quality components available, so that you have one less thing to worry about. It will be ready to go anytime and every time, whenever you need it.
The backbone of the Titan 6000 is the SKB Shock Rack case. Known throughout the world for their strength and durability, SKB cases are second to none. The rugged exterior shell provides a safe haven for the sensitive electronics inside. Massive shock absorbers at every corner protect the built-in rack mount system from even the hardest impacts, ensuring that wherever and however you travel, the Titan 6000 will be ready to work when you get there.
Power comes from three hot-swappable 2000W power supplies from Mean Well, the industry leader for over 30 years. Ready for universal AC input, these units need no modification for use wherever you travel in the world. Separately switched AC inputs make it easy to take advantage of whatever power level you have available on site, from 2000 up to the full 6000W.
The core of any charging platform will always be the chargers themselves, and when failure is not an option the obvious choice is the PowerLab workstation from FMA/Revolectrix. Designed in the USA with safety and reliability in mind from the start, the PowerLab chargers have enjoyed a spotless reputation throughout their existence. The Titan 6000 arrays four PowerLab 8 v2 chargers in concert with the innovative Bump Controller, a touchscreen - and Bluetooth ready - control interface that recognizes your batteries via compatible RFID tags to make charging and data logging as seamless as possible.
Front-facing Charger Interface Panels provide easy and flexible hookups for your batteries. Each panel has separate balance ports for 2S-8S, a main charge connector of your choice, and a 4mm banana jack for connecting adapter cables.
Ventilation is key for any high-power system; there are three separate airflow systems in the case to make certain that the Titan 6000 can withstand even the highest operating temperatures. The power supplies are self-cooled, our custom charger chassis sports four 60mm exhaust fans, and to ensure full air recycling throughout the case there is a dedicated fan plate and temperature monitor mounted on the rear of the rack.
Completing the package is the pull-out drawer between the chargers and power supplies. The perfect place to store your AC power cords and other accessories during transit, the drawer also serves as a platform for your batteries during charging.
Every Titan 6000 is built to order, with the skill and attention to detail of experienced machinists and engineers. This individual approach lets us take the time to make sure that every case is perfect before it leaves our shop, as well as giving us the freedom to add personal touches like laser engraving your logo on the front panel. Are you ready to see what that looks like?

I’ll start with the unboxing of my new Titan 6000 mobile charging platform. Not that the SKB Roto Shock Case needed the protection, it came wrapped in enough bubble wrap and an outer box that insured it arrived in perfect condition. The shock absorbers on the corners of the internal rack and the outer case combined, give me the confidence that the electronics housed within will survive the roughest flight line gorillas on the planet.
The folks at Progressive RC have done an outstanding job of incorporating the four PowerLab chargers, three Mean Well power supplies, a Bump Controller, and cooling gear into a package that is truly a work of art. The fit and finish is second to none. Field setup is a snap, take the front and back covers off, plug in the power cords and switch on the needed power supplies, pull out the charging shelf, bump the batteries, and go. The ability to use one, two, or all three power supplies to power the chargers gives me the flexibility to tailor the platform to the charging job at hand. The internal fans do a great job of circulating air around the components keeping things cool. I must mention that the Titan is big and does weigh around ninety-five pounds. That said, the case is designed so two can move it with ease and it is doable for one person, just remember to lift with your legs and not your back.
Everyone at Progressive RC has been so helpful and informative from the beginning, through the build and after I received my Titan and I can’t thank them enough. In short the Titan 6000 is a versatile, convenient, sturdy work of art and is just for what I was searching.
