Global electrical connectivity and electronic solutions provider, Weidmuller has added a 1.3Ah battery to its range of five DC-UPS batteries.

Weidmuller’s broad range includes batteries from 1.3Ah up to 17Ah for greater user flexibility. With the latest addition, the Weidmuller DC-UPS family now provides back-up power for periods extending from minutes to hours for automation components. A long-lasting, highly practical and reliable power backup option, the 1.3Ah battery is perfect for short duration assurance.

Weidmuller’s 1.3Ah battery delivers 10 minutes of power backup at 3Amp or 40 minutes at 1Amp, ensuring a 24V DC power supply is available for automation. This allows users to avoid machinery and system downtime during a mains failure for a specified time. The battery keeps safety functions, process controls and communication active for a defined time period.

Made from a quality Panasonic AGM lead-acid battery, the 1.3Ah DC-UPS model together with the UPS controller backs up mains failure safely and reliably.

Weidmuller’s latest 1.3Ah batteries include a temperature-compensated charging function to ensure a long battery life. The DC-UPS measures the battery temperature and automatically sets charging voltage according to the temperature-compensated charging recognition, which maximises the life of the battery. Depending on usage, customers can receive a life of up to 9 years from the 1.3Ah model.

The space-saving design of the compact 1.3Ah battery is just 52mm wide and can be din rail or cold plate mounted for user convenience. The battery is also extremely easy and quick to install thanks to its pluggable connectors.

Key features of the 1.3Ah batteries include a control unit operating to 70°C and offering four status signals for easy user notification; three status signals (alarm/buffers/charge) that can be transmitted for remote monitoring using voltage-free relay contacts and additional transistor outputs; and interlock in the battery's charging unit allowing free switching between the DC-UPS and battery.
