October 12, 2010 ‚Äî Falcon Electric announced SSG-RP Series Ultra-Wide Temperature UPS, with models from 1kVA to 3kVA. The SSG-RP Series ultra-high temperature UPS has been designed to operate reliably in temperature environments beyond the capability of standard commercially available UPS products. Having an operational temperature range of ‚àí22¬∞F to +149¬∞F (‚àí30¬∞C to 65¬∞C) makes the SSG-RP Ultra ideal for use in protected locations where temperature control is a problem.The SSG-RP Series Ultra-Wide Temperature UPS‚Äô batteries come packaged in a separate 2U enclosure and are ‚Äúhot-swappable,‚Äù which means new batteries may swapped in while the UPS is still in use. The wide-temperature range Cyclone batteries used have a projected 10-year service life when installed in a 77¬∞F (room temperature) and a projected one-year life when installed in a location with ambient heat at 131¬∫F (55¬∫C). Due to the unique characteristics of the batteries, recharging is performed over the entire operational temperature range of the UPS.The SSG-RP Series Ultra is a true double-conversion on-line UPS, which is designed to give users the highest level of protection against a wide spectrum of power problems. It provides clean, tightly regulated, sinewave output power even when operating from a dirty incoming AC power source. Unlike other off-the-shelf line-interactive UPS designs, the SSG-RP Series acts like an electronic firewall between incoming ‚Äúdirty‚Äù power, protecting the most sensitive microprocessor-based equipment. For unattended OS shutdown and easy monitoring of the UPS system, Falcon‚Äôs UPSilon shutdown and management software supports Windows platforms, including Vista, as well as Novell NetWare 5 & 6, Linux, and FreeBSD. UPSilon for UNIX is available at an additional cost and supports most popular UNIX platform and OS versions.For remote monitoring and management of industrial networks, including humidity, smoke, physical entry, and water detection, users may purchase an optional USHA SNMP/HTTP agent board that installs directly inside the UPS, providing a TCP-IP addressable, 10/100 Ethernet communication node. The USHA supports IPv4, IPv6, SNMPv3, and RADIUS.The SSG-RP Series Ultra features Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) with NFPA-70, NEC 645-11 compliant operation.Pricing ranges from $2,590 for the 1kVA model (SSG1KRP-1) to $4,390 for the 3kVA model (SSG3KRP-1).
