Industrial UPS has intelligent battery management

Phoenix Contact's Quint UPS-IQ uses IQ technology to manage battery status and inform the user on relevant data.

09/13/2011


The Quint UPS-IQ uses Phoenix Contact’s newly developed IQ technology to increase system availability. The rail-mounted uninterruptible power supply (UPS) monitors a scalable battery solution and provides the user with critical data.

The IQ technology manages the battery status and displays all of the relevant data on the UPS’s front panel, or transmits it to a computer. As a result, the user always knows the charge state, remaining buffer time and expected lifetime.

For 24 V loads, the Quint UPS-IQ has output currents of 5, 10, 20, and 40 A. The ac version has an output power of 500 VA.

Other system features include alarm contacts, PC shutdown and re-start, triggering e-mails and event-logging. The system, including the battery modules, is UL508 and UL1778 listed.
