Electro Standards SCups Units Utilize Super Capacitors to Assist with Power Fluctuations

April 9, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL) has designed Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) devices known as SCups to utilize its Super Capacitors for energy storage. The SCups SuperCapacitor UPS is ideal to assist with the fluctuating power of low power remote systems where primary power can be interrupted. Typical applications include intermittent grid power or renewable energy systems such as solar, wind, or wave power systems. 

ESL has also expanded their Super Capacitor UPS line to now include Models 1023, 1024, 1026, and 1027 units. The SCups is designed to provide backup DC power to nominal 12VDC and 24VDC systems in the event that the primary power supply is interrupted. The units automatically detect loss of primary power, at which time DC power is then supplied from the SCups. Once primary power is restored, it is routed to the load and also used to recharge the Super Capacitor in the SCups. 

SuperCapacitor electricity storage devices provide an effective use of energy regeneration and long compensation time. They are also small and light-weight. These devices are ideal for assistance with backup and peak assist power management for solar power, wind power, medical facilities/hospitals, remote military operations, construction sites, and more.

The SCups units are available in both desktop configuration and board-only configurations that can be integrated into user equipment or can be supplied in a standalone package.
