Extronics Uninterruptible Power Supplies

Provide Back Up Power in Hazardous Areas and Extreme Environments

The iUPS Series provide reliable UPS under extreme conditions including hazardous (classified) locations typically found in chemical plants, oil refineries, and around oil & gas platforms. Critical equipment such as servers, process analysers, and control systems can be protected in the event of a brown out or other supply disturbance.

In Zone 1 the iUPS101 can provide 120 or 230 VAC at 3 kVA for 35 minutes and has alarm and status LEDs visible through a glass window. Surface mounted switches provide input / output power isolation, and a stainless steel close-coupled termination enclosure and external battery box means that the main explosion proof enclosure does not need to be opened. A second battery box can be added to double the run time. An upgraded version of the original iUPS100.

For Zone 2 the iUPS200 provides 12 or 24VDC at 70W for 120 minutes. The stainless steel enclosure may be wall or pole mounted and also accommodates the battery. Optional features include a choice of built-in status indication and pushbutton control, or active logic outputs for monitoring by a DCS or other control system.

Both models include advanced battery charging technology including temperature compensation to maximize battery life and performance.
