IRWINDALE, Calif., 15 April 2011. The CE-approved 220-volt AC SSG uninterruptible power supply (UPS) series from Falcon Electric Inc. in Irwindale, Calif., has obtained Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listing. This enables systems integrators to avoid buying two different UPS product lines for the United States and Europe.

The SSG series UPS operates in temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius, and is designed for harsh-environment military, industrial, and IT applications. The SSG series also has hot-swappable batteries with a 10-year life expectancy, which operate in temperatures from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Even when the UPS is installed in temperatures as hot as 50 C, the expected battery life is four years. The 1.5-to-3-kilovolt-ampere SSG series provide clean, tightly regulated, sine wave output power with even dirty incoming AC power, and acts like an electronic firewall that protects sensitive microprocessor-based equipment.

Falcon's UPSilon shutdown and management software for unattended operating system shutdown and monitoring supports Windows, Novell NetWare 5 & 6, Linux, FreeBSD, and UNIX. An optional USHA SNMP/HTTP agent board can monitor and manage industrial networks remotely. This detects humidity, smoke, physical entry, and water. The board provides a TCP-IP-addressable, 10/100 Ethernet communication node.

The 120- and 220-volt AC SSG series also offers load segment control, input power factor correction, and precision output voltage regulation. For more information contact Falcon Electric online at www.falconups.com.
