Rugged AC UPS Series

The Rugged AC UPS Series provides critical equipment a secure source of clean AC power during utility grid failures and brownouts. A line-interactive UPS, the series features wide range Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) allowing the AC UPS to stay in normal operation without transferring to back-up mode during temporary voltage irregularities, preserving and extending battery life cycle. The indoor or outdoor UPS models also contain temperature-compensated battery charging which enhances battery life.

Engineered to meet the demanding applications and harsh environments of outdoor cabinets, traffic, and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), public safety, and remote communication sites; the Rugged AC UPS features a wide AC input voltage range of 88 - 152V AC and operates at extreme hot and cold temperatures.

  • Wide range of Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
  • Temperature compensated charging
  • Fast transfer time < 5ms typical
  • SNMP network card, RS-232 and USB ports included
  • LCD screen for quick access to system diagnostics
  • Front panel connections for easy install
  • Forced air cooled with fan filter (field replaceable)
  • Alarm contacts (six sets)
  • 19” rack or cabinet mounting
  • AC Wiring: hard wired AC input/output
