PowerSeries UPSThe PSS Power Series UPS units can be used in domestic, commercial and industrial applications and are generator compatible. Sizes range from 1 to 15 kVA. These devices, which employ true on-line double conversion techniques, and supply a clean pure sine wave output, provide surge, spike, dip and blackout protection with zero-second switch-over delay. The UPS is supplied with Upsilon software which has the ability to do an automatic shutdown when needed, and can even send notifications via email. An optional adaptor called Net Agent enables the UPS to be connected to a network which allows the unit to be accessed from anywhere in the country. The Upsilon software can also send SMS updates directly to a cell phone, either via the network or through an optional GSM interface device. The units are supplied with internal sealed lead-acid batteries which are configured to provide a DC voltage of 192 V. The unit charges the batteries to 90% capacity after 8 hours. An LCD display shows the input and output voltages, temperature, frequency and load, while LEDs are employed to display the unit’s status (output, fault, overload and bypass).
