Rackmount Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) fit into standard 19” racks and enclosures and offer convenient front panel access. They provide continuous backup power and protection for PLCs, computers, network switches, and other essential equipment that require constant uptime. Rackmount UPS models offer double-conversion (true online) sinusoidal power output and protection from an input power transients. Long-life, low maintenance, and low lifetime costs make these units a great value. Although the initial cost may be higher than other UPS products, the total cost is far less over the length of a project.
A double-conversion UPS provides the highest quality of power protection – much better than standby or line-interactive designs. Compared with the other two architectures, a true-online UPS is the only one that creates a clean, conditioned AC output. A second advantage is the ability to isolate incoming primary power from connected equipment.
It removes line noise, high voltage transients, harmonic distortion, and 50 and 60 Hertz frequency issues. Standby and line-interactive UPS types connect their loads directly to utility power with little or no surge protection.
Online industrial UPS systems, such as the SSG and SSG-RP rack mount families from Falcon Electric, are built to withstand industrial locations and extreme temperatures. Not only does Falcon’s rack mount UPS solutions endure these environments, but they also have a service life up to 12 years, making them an incredible value. The real cost of ownership is far less than other lower-cost products on the market. Ten and twelve-year rated batteries save maintenance costs by eliminating costly and frequent replacements.
The popular SSG1.5KRM-1 2U rackmount UPS from Falcon Electric, for example, features true online 1500 VA / 1050 watts capacity and an operational temperature range from -20° to 55°C. Integrated 12-year rated batteries reduce frequent replacements and downtime. With UL 508, UL 1778, cUL, and CE certification, this model is perfect for industrial control applications. The SSG1.5KRP-1 is the same as above, except it has an ultra-wide operating temperature range from -30° to 65°C and 10-year rated batteries. Tower models are available as well.
When choosing a UPS solution, consider the level of protection. For backing up equipment that cannot afford disruption, a durable wide temperature rated UPS with long-life batteries is the right solution. Contact Westward Sales to find out which UPS is best suited for your project.
