By combining one DC UPS module SITOP UPS1600 with at least one UPS1100 battery module and a SITOP power supply unit, longer power failures can be bridged without any interruption. The intelligent battery management automatically detects the UPS1100 energy storage unit, ensures optimized temperature-specific charging and continuous monitoring. The compact DC UPS modules have overload capability, for example, to supply the inrush current of industrial PCs. In stand-alone mode, they support starting from the battery.
The DC UPS communicates openly over a USB or Ethernet/PROFINET port. It is easily integrated into the PC or PLC environment over the two Ethernet/PROFINET ports. Total integration in TIA provides user-friendly engineering in the TIA Portal and is supported with ready-to-use function blocks for S7 user programs and WinCC faceplates for fast visualization.
SITOP UPS Manager supports easy monitoring and configuration in PC systems, e.g. shutdown of several PCs in accordance with the master-slave principle. The integrated web server supports remote monitoring of the DC UPS.
The battery modules that can be connected in parallel bridge power failures for a few hours. This supports the continued operation of processes or parts of them. The function "Starting from the battery" means that the UPS1600 can also be used in stand-alone mode without connection to the supply.
Depending on the communication requirements between the DC UPS and the automation components to be protected against power failure, the version of UPS1600 can be selected accordingly.
Buffering of simple automation applications
In simple applications with mini PLCs (e.g. obstruction lights, stand-alone hydro-electric plants), 24 V buffering is performed by the UPS1600 without a communications interface. The status messages are transferred to the PLC via the digital outputs (isolated).
Buffering of applications with automation computer
The UPS1600 with a USB interface is used to buffer automation solutions that are controlled by an industrial PC. All operating and configuring data is communicated over the PC interface.
Communication over Ethernet/PROFINET offers the most comprehensive possibilities for diagnostics and system integration. The UPS1600 can be directly integrated into the LAN infrastructure over its two ports.
Buffering of applications with networked (Industrial Ethernet) automation computers
The UPS1600 with Industrial Ethernet interface protects complex PC-based applications from power failure. Configuration and monitoring is performed using the PC software SITOP UPS Manager. It also supports defined shutdown of several PCs in accordance with the master-slave principle.
Buffering of applications with networked (PROFINET) automation components
For buffering sensitive plant components (e.g. a pumping station with telecontrol) or complete controller solutions (e.g. machine tools) that are integrated into a networked automation solution, the UPS1600 with PROFINET is the perfect choice. Total integration in TIA offers unique advantages for engineering and operation (e.g. diagnostics or visualization). For example, in buffer mode, several controllers can be brought to a defined independently of each other.
