Remotely monitored systems such as in water treatment operations, often require two supply voltages, 24V for the controller and 12V for the radio modem for data transmission.
For such applications, Snaptec Australia is introducing a new DC-UPS device for a reliable supply of these two types of loads.
With a single DC-UPS and one battery, both output voltages can be provided with power simultaneously in normal operation and in the event of power failures.
The DC-UPS model UB10.245 has one 24V input and two outputs (24V and 12V) which are buffered with one 12V battery in the event of a power failure (1-battery concept).
The benefits of this dual-output device include saving on separate power supply, a DC-UPS and a battery for the 12V output.
Furthermore, the output voltages are stabilised in normal operation as well as in the event of a power failure – the voltages do not drop as is the case when the battery voltage is simply transferred to the output.
