Uninterruptible power supply guarantees reliable data acquisition

November 20, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Ipetronik GmbH has improved the uninterruptible power supply for its data acquisition systems designed for automotive testing. The M-UPS2 bridges voltage drops and breakdowns, e. g. during startup and cold start testing, guaranteeing reliable and consistent data acquisition in automotive testing even under difficult environmental conditions.

Among the significant characteristics of M-UPS2 are its output voltage of 15 V ±1 V, a 30 W power output in battery mode and 50 W with on-board power supply as well as a low standby current of <1 mA. Furthermore, it features automatic interruption-free switch-over between battery mode and on-board mode and an extended operating temperature range of -25 °C to +70 °C. The battery is automatically charged and is exchangeable. This high-performance battery (2.5 Ah) buffers short voltage drops or voltage failure during motor startup reliably for a period of one to five minutes.

M-UPS2 uses a gold anodized aluminium enclosure of 113 mm x 85 mm x 89 mm (W x H x D) that is compatible with the Ipetronik M-Series and supports IP54 protection class. It supports different remote functions for automated switch-on/off. Cascading of several modules increases output power.
