1. Power supply system for mounting to a rail comprising an AC/DC converter for converting high voltage AC power to low voltage DC power;

  • a controller for controlling the power supply system;

    wherein the system comprises;

    a rail, wherein the rail is a metallic beam;

    an AC/DC converter and controller module for mounting to the rail and for connection to the AC/DC converter and controller respectively;

    a battery connection and LVBD contactor module for mounting to the rail and for connection to a first battery, wherein a first side of the battery connection and LVBD contactor module interlocks with a side of the AC/DC converter and controller module by a first connection interface and wherein the battery connection and LVBD contactor module on a second side, opposite of the first side, comprises a first connector of a second connection interface; and

    a first load connection module for mounting to the rail and for connection to a first load, wherein the first load connection module on a first side comprises a second connector of the second connection interface and on a second side, opposite of the first side, comprises a third connector of the second connection interface, wherein the second connector of the first load connection module interlocks with the first connector on the second side of the battery connection and LVBD contactor module;

    wherein the LVBD contactor of the battery connection and LVBD contactor module is provided for controlled connection or disconnection of the first battery,wherein the first and second connection interfaces comprise DC power terminals for transferring DC power and signal terminals for transferring control signals, andwherein each of the AC/DC converter and controller module, the battery connection and LVBD contactor module, and the first load connection module are mounted along the rail with a fastener.
