Due to continuing advances in power electronics, the flywheel is now a mature energy storage technology used in UPS applications to support a critical load during main power interruption.
Keeping electricity demands “current” can be a challenge. A sound strategy wil go beyond making sure the lights stay on.
Wide temperature rated batteries provide long backup runtimes for equipment operating in harsh environments.
Columnist Tom Condon explains how facilities fall dangerously silent during outages if reliable emergency power is not made available.
This low maintenance mechanical device provides temporary power on demand.
Falcon Electric, Inc., an Irwindale, CA manufacturer of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) and power conversion products, has obtained UL (Underwriters Laboratory) listing for its CE approved 220Vac SSG Series UPS product line. These agency listings (UL and the European Union CE) give large companies and systems integrators the ability to install a single UPS product line that has both agency listings. The SSG Series UPS is designed to operate reliably, providing backup power in a wide range of temperatures. With an operational temperature range of -4°F to 131°F (-20°C to 55°C), the SSG is suited for harsh industrial, military, and IT power environments. The SSG Series feature hot swappable batteries with a 10 year life expectancy operating in a 70°F to 80°F environment. When installed in a 122°F (50°C) location, projected battery life is four years.
This new unit provides conditioned, continuous backup power to facility managers’ mission critical applications.
The importance of facilities management was underscored on Sunday when nearly 81,000 people sat in total darkness for a few seconds at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. The power outage brought Sunday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants to a halt.
Based on nearly 20 years of design experience, these new uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems offer time saving, user friendly features:
