Don’t be Interrupted by a Loss of Power

We have Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Devices for your next application. The latest UPS Devices we offer have either a 600VA UPS or a 850VA UPS with varying device options.

600VA UPS

The 600VA UPS is powered by 120Vac power. The battery is “hot-swappable,” which means the battery may be changed while the device is powered. The battery is also replaceable if it ever fails. There are five surge-protected, battery backed-up 120Vac outputs and two surge-protected, non-backed-up 120Vac outputs. Want to know how long the battery will last under a specific sized load? See the manufacturer’s website for an easy to read graph here.

We utilize the 600VA UPS in three different kits which include the UPS and an interface circuit board inside a metal enclosure. These devices are models PSH600-UPSPSH600-UPS-STAT, and PSH600-UPS-BC. With the “-STAT” version, one will find a circuit board that can help convey the power status of the UPS device within the enclosure. With the “-BC” version, one will find a circuit board that has BACnet® communication capabilities to transmit specific data points back to the main controller via the BACnet® twisted pair.

850VA UPS

The 850VA UPS is also powered by 120Vac power. The battery is not “hot-swappable,” but one can replace the battery if for some reason the battery fails. There are five surge-protected, battery backed-up 120Vac outputs and five surge-protected, non-backed-up 120Vac outputs. Want to know how long the battery will last under a specific sized load? See the manufacturer’s website and click on the “Runtime” tab for access to a helpful graph. We utilize the 850VA UPS in one kit. That device is model PSH850-UPS-STAT, which provides a metal enclosure, the circuit board that gives the power status of the UPS device, and the 850VA UPS itself.

That pretty well covers what we have to offer in terms of UPS devices, so if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Support Team via email or phone. We’re happy to help the best we can!
