Challenge: A ‘Battery-less' Industrial UPS Solution
An uninterruptable power system, or UPS, is not new technology. However, mission-critical applications lack a competent industrial-grade UPS solution that does not compromise the safety of its surroundings. Traditional battery-based UPS, like lithium-ion or lead acid, require regulatory maintenance check-ups and cannot safely deploy in industrial environments where flammable and explosive hazards are a concern.
Solution: Supercapacitor Technology
Enter supercapacitor technology, providing power integrity and redundancy to divert abrupt data corruption and shutdowns for data sustainability. With ruggedized traits and features, such as wider operating temperatures, resistance to shock/vibration, extensive service life, and maintenance-free reliability, it has proven to be the industrial alternative to traditional UPS’s. Supercapacitors deliver purpose-built industrial power redundancy to maintain data integrity and eliminate downtimes in mission-critical deployments.
What are Supercapacitors?
Supercapacitors, or ultracapacitors, are high power throughput energy storage systems that electrostatically store and release electrical energy rapidly. These supercapacitors are utilized in applications that require high amounts of energy in very little time, such as electric vehicles with sudden surges of power for initial acceleration.
Key Advantages of Supercapacitor Technology
- Rapid Charge/Discharge: Charges in seconds to minutes
- Extended 10 Years Lifecycle: 500,000 cycles
- Low Maintenance: Minimal upkeep required
- Environmental Tolerance:Wide operating temperatures -40°C to 55°C, 20G Shock and 5Grms vibration
- Safety:Non-toxic and low explosion risk
- Power Stability: Designed for constant power fluctuations
- Agency Safety Certifications: UL 62368-1 3rd Ed
