The Quint UPS-IQ line by Phoenix Contact now uses capacitor batteries, which have an operational lifespan of up to 20 years and can operate between -20 and 60 degrees Celsius. Courtesy: Phoenix ContactPhoenix Contact has introduced capacitor-based dual-layer batteries for its Quint UPS-IQ line. The capacitor battery improves on the lithium-ion battery used before it with a longer lifespan and wider temperature range than the UPS’s original valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery.

This capacitor-based energy storage can operate between -20 and 60 degrees Celsius. It has an operational lifespan of up to 20 years based upon the ambient conditions.

The Quint UPS-IQ provides intelligent battery backup in mission-critical systems that require an uninterruptible power supply. Users can gain additional visibility into the performance behavior of the capacitors, including:

  • State of Charge (SOC): Indicates the remaining backup time and level of charge on the battery
  • State of Health (SOH): Indicates the remaining service life of the battery module(s)
  • State of Function (SOF): Indicates the capacity of the battery module(s)
