Online UPS series combines double-conversion technology with a design and flexibility that allows the units to be installed in one of several configurations depending on the situation: rack/cabinet configuration (19-in. rack kit included, 23-in. rack optional); tower configuration (installation kit included); and wall-mount configuration (installation kit optional). Double-conversion technology is designed so that the inverter is always connected to the output of the UPS. For more about UPS systems from Minuteman, click here .

Testing instrument is designed specifically for locating faults in shielded, primary and direct buried electric cables. The unit is available in three configurations: as a stand-alone unit (without probes) that detects electromagnetic impulse; a single-probe version which allows for detection of the acoustic thump and provides a measure of the distance to the fault; and as a dual-probe version which can also provide the direction to the fault. A stand-alone or single-probe version can be easily upgraded at any time. For more information about the MPP1000, click here .
