Falcon Electric Inc. has announced the expansion of its SSG Series Industrial UPS product line. The SSG rackmount and tower family now spans power levels from 1kVA to 6kVA that address a wide range of demanding industrial and process control applications. Like Falcon's other SSG models, the 4 to 6kVA units are rugged, rackmount on-line uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) that carry UL 1778, UL 508, cUL listings and CE certification. These certifications assure reliable, code- compliant operation over a wide -20°C to 55°C (-4°F to 131°F) temperature range.
Designed from the ground-up for rugged industrial applications, the SSG is a single-phase, on-line, double-conversion UPS. It is specifically designed to provide industrial-grade power to equipment deployed in harsh environmental conditions such as oil and gas, process control, wastewater treatment, chemical production, as well as bridges and tollways.
The SSG family also features hot-swappable 10-year rated backup batteries when installed in a 25°C (77°F) environment. With double the average UPS battery life, this advancement reduces battery replacement and cost. When installed in an extreme 50°C (122°F) location, projected battery life is four years, resulting in one-quarter the maintenance cost. For long duration power outages, the SSG, due to its continuous duty inverter design, accommodates high capacity external battery banks, providing hours of battery backup time.
The SSG UPS Series offers numerous options, such as NEMA-rated enclosures, conformal coating and frequency conversion. Power management software and Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) are standard features.
