Ultra Capacitor DC UPS power backup systems from Altech Corp.® have been optimized for seamless switchover during power outages, interruptions, peak power demand, or power dips and sags. Their advanced capacitor technology contributes to environmentally safe operation, compared with battery-based systems prone to emit toxic chemicals from discharging batteries. The technology further enables excellent energy storage, fast microcontroller-based charging and discharging, and extended energy release (up to 55 minutes). These systems will deliver higher energy (up to 10,000 W) than electrolytic capacitor-based technologies and higher power than batteries. They ultimately will help to ensure reliable and consistent power for applications in any industry or setting where uninterrupted power supply is both critical and essential.
The Ultra Capacitor UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems are available in 12VDC and 24VDC output versions from 3 A to 40 A, depending on model. The CTEC and C-TEC P versions perform in conjunction with separate main power supplies (with the C-TECH P system able to produce an output spike for applications requiring a temporary surge of power). The AC-C-TEC systems augment these designs by incorporating a built-in power supply with AC input for maximized ease and convenience. Compatible with all models, a CEM (Capacitor Extension Module) ideally extends buffer times for applications exhibiting increased power demands.
The systems excel at controlled shutdown functions, resist shock and vibration, and feature compact and sturdy convection-cooled metal housings built to weather extreme conditions. They are engineered to operate over a wide temperature range from -40ºC to 65ºC (-40ºF to 149ºF), require virtually no maintenance over their 15+ years of expected service life, and can be DIN-rail mounted.
All systems meet relevant worldwide product standards and are covered by a three-year warranty. Altech additionally offers setup/monitoring software and comprehensive product support. Customized solutions (including available output models up to 600 A) can be developed to meet particular application requirements.
