Siemens New SITOP DC UPS Prevents Downtime by Supplying 6 AMPS to 24V Devices
ATLANTA (October 25, 2004) – The new 6A SITOP DC uninterruptible power source (UPS) from Siemens Energy & Automation prevents data loss and downtime in 24VDC industrial networks. The protection device delivers up to 6 amperes of output current during power failures or network fluctuations.

DIN rail mounted, the new UPS from Siemens measures only 50mm wide and compliments Siemens existing 15 and 40 amp non-interruptible modules for 24V, direct-current networks. With three units to choose from, the DC UPS offering provides power security for the entire SITOP 24 VDC power supply line.

“To complete the DC UPS solution, a selection of SITOP batteries ensure continued operation for several hours, depending on the amount of current needed,” said Kai Bronzel, Siemens SITOP product manager. “When it comes to monitoring the operating states, several options are available. However, the most advanced method is to communicate through the optional interface, using a free software tool.”

Interruption-free transition from network operation to battery operation is provided by the circuit design of all SITOP power DC-UPS units. In the event of a power outage, the battery immediately cuts in. DIP switches help set the units’ function and parameter codes.

Extensive integrated monitoring functions, including backup readiness, battery life and charge status, are signaled via LEDs and floating contacts. Signaling data and diagnostic data can be also transferred directly to a higher level control system through an optional USB or serial interface.
