Su-vastika launches solar-linkable UPS system

Su-vastika has laun­ch­ed a lithium battery-ba­sed th­r­ee-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system that can be widely used as an alternative to polluting diesel generators, from residential and commercial buildings to educational facilities, hospitals and shopping malls. The UPS system operates on a bi-directional technology based on an insulated-gate bipolar transistor and has power ratings ranging from 10 kVA to 500 kVA.

Reportedly, the UPS system has a 75 per cent lower running cost than diesel generator sets. As per the manufacturer, the lithium ferro phosphate technology-based batteries can be fully recharged in four hours. The system also uses ad­van­­c­ed static switches that reduce swit­ching time to 2-5 metres, which is fast en­ough to prevent a computer and the majority of sensitive equipment from re­setting. Additionally, by combining so­lar power with the battery bank, the UPS sy­stem’s backup time can be extended. The company’s online monitoring system also monitors battery bank usage and notifies the user when a new battery bank needs to be installed.
