The FH Series UPS is designed for the power demands of biomedical and laboratory equipment. The unit's double-conversion, online design provides “no break” battery backup. In addition, the UPS incorporates internal hot-swappable, user-replaceable battery packs. Optional extended battery banks and fast chargers are also available. For laboratories or hospitals located in older buildings, the product includes input galvanic isolation and input power factor correction circuitry to resolve electrical system problems and reduce harmonics.
Panel TVSS units meet 2007 UL 1449 2nd Edition standards and include light-, medium-, and heavy-duty models in single- and 3-phase versions. In addition, each light-duty model features a green LED that turns off when protection is lost. On medium- and heavy-duty units, the green LED indicates normal operation while red shows a loss of protection. Some models also include an audio alarm. Upgraded designs offer enhanced reliability at 150A and 50A intermediate currents.
