February 16, 2017 -- Emerson, a supplier of power quality solutions under the SolaHD brand, introduced the SDU AC - A Series of DIN Rail 120VAC and 230VAC UPS.
The UPS series is designed to help businesses reduce production losses and maintain output levels by delivering protection from damaging impulses and power interruptions to microprocessor-based devices.
Featuring a communications port for either networked Industrial Ethernet protocols (example: EtherNet/IP) and discrete (passive - dry contact relay applications) for digital I/O processing. Emerson is targeting the UPS at industries that rely heavily upon robotics, factory automation, PLCs, conveying equipment, CNC machinery, and throughout the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environment.
In the event of a power disturbance, for example, the off-line technology will provide back-up AC for up to four minutes so that processes can safely continue or be safely shut-down minimizing losses. In addition, it protects technology against any array of damaging impulses and surges on the factory floor whenever AC is present. Automatic shutdown is performed by the UPS if overload exceeds 105% of nominal power for 20 seconds, 120% for 10 seconds, and 130% for 3 seconds. In addition, the SDU AC - A UPS is among the few in its price range to feature cold start capability, meaning that the user can start the UPS without AC power to troubleshoot for bad input power. Input and output screw terminals are IP-20 rated, while the wide operating temperature range (0°C to 50°C) qualifies it for installation in virtually any industrial environment, including hazardous locations. The 120VAC models are UL1778 recognized without derating when providing protection in UL508 industrial control applications, enabling operation at the UPS' capability. SDU AC - A 120VAC and 230VAC models are CE marked for sale within the European Economic Area and North America for panel builders.
