Bicker’s Rugged Supercap-Based DC UPS Offers IP67 Protection

October 14, 2019 Alix Paultre

Intended for use in extreme environmental conditions, Bicker Elektronik’s UPSI-1208IP-23UW with 12VDC output (8A) and UPSI-2406IP-24UW with 24VDC output (5.42A) are dust and waterproof in accordance with IP67. Provided in a robust aluminum housing, the closed system is designed to allow fanless 24/7 continuous operation in temperatures from -20 to +70 °C.

Ultracapacitors (Supercaps) are used to enable fast operation in a wide operating temperature range with a high current-carrying capacity, power density and reliability. On the input side, both DC UPS systems accept an input range from 7Vdc to 36 Vdc (UPSI-1208IP-23UW) or 8Vdc to 36 Vdc (UPSI-2406IP-24UW). To suppress network-sided electromagnetic interference, an additional EMC filter module is upstream of the converter.

Features include intelligent distribution of charging currents (PowerSharing) and minimum load detection (load sensor) to monitor the supplied output load during UPS backup operation. An integrated reboot function can be used to activate the automatic restart of a supplied computer system as soon as the main voltage returns during a shutdown or at a later time.
