Device performs most power disturbance corrections without transferring to its battery, thereby preventing critical backup power from draining.

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Emerson Electric Co. in Rosemont, Ill., is introducing the SolaHD SSW Mini-Tower Line-Interactive uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for preventing costly damage to IT and automation equipment from electrical surges, spikes, lightning strikes, and electricity blackouts.

These UPS devices come in capacities from 700 to 1440 volt-amperes, and can ensure optimum waveform for equipment stability and longevity with its battery sinewave output.

It also provides the benefits of automatic voltage regulation topology that adjusts high and low voltages to a safe level, providing sensitive electronics with reliable power while preserving the life of the UPS battery.

The SolaHD SSW performs the vast majority of power disturbance corrections without transferring to its internal battery, therefore preventing critical backup power from draining.

Built-in surge suppression and Active Tracking filters shield connected equipment from damage from lightning, surges and EMI/RFI line noise introduced on the input power source.

The mini-tower shape of the UPS fits easily into cabinets and other tight spaces where it delivers clean, conditioned power free from noise, voltage spikes, and common-mode disturbances.

By pairing the SolaHD SSW with Emerson's UPSwatch monitoring software, operation teams are given remote visibility into the status of the UPS and its loads.

If UPSwatch detects a supply voltage variation or even a total power loss, it can execute various command scripts like automatic shutdown. The UPS also has a battery test function that displays a warning if the battery fails to indicate that the hot-swappable battery needs to be replaced.
