The DC input UPS systems ensure reliable availability of safety-critical systems in the case of power failure and supports 12V, 24V and 48V systems.

The product selection will depend on the application as the battery-powered UPS supports various established battery technologies and provides immediate system back-up in the event of a power failure. Hold-up time may be adjusted to meet end user requirements by adding extra battery packs. It supports 24 V and 12 V applications with 5A charging current for fast availability, battery start-up without mains power and configuration via interface and rotary switch

The capacitive energy storage UPS uses high efficiency, long life ultracapacitors and provides system power support up to the minute range. The long service life of ultracapacitors and the internal temperature-controlled battery management system reduces maintenance costs during operation to a minimum. The capacitive UPS is easy to expand by adding capacitive modules, offers a high power density, is maintenance-free and also offers parameter setting via USB interface and rotary switch.

“Our two new UPS products offer modular solutions for the latest industrial control requirements. Convectional battery technology is available for standard requirements while the ultracapacitor version is very useful for remote installations where access for maintenance is difficult,” said Dave Wellman, Sales Manager of BLOCK UK.

The communication features of both modules provide integrated monitoring of the entire system in line with the requirements of Industry 4.0. Both types of UPS are configured using BLOCK’s new UPS Control Software either via the front panel mounted rotary switch or via the USB interface. The USB port on both versions is shock and vibration-proofed.
