Falcon Electric's SSGB-1S40-5U 40AH battery bank is a rugged battery that can last up to 40 Amp Hour (AH) maintenance-free and is designed to operate in harsh conditions. Courtesy: Falcon ElectricFalcon Electric Inc. added a ruggedized wide temperature (-30 C to 63 C) extended runtime battery bank option to its SSG and SSG-RP UPS products. The wide-temperature-rated batteries provide long back-up runtimes for protecting connected computers and instrumentation operating in harsh environments during a prolonged power outage. The battery pack gives users over 10 times the battery runtime, compared to Falcon’s standard 2U extended battery pack option. 

The SSGB-1S40-5U 40AH battery bank is a rugged battery option that consists of eight deep cycle, valve regulated lead-acid, maintenance-free 40 Amp Hour (AH) batteries and two internal one amp chargers. The batteries and chargers are housed in a sleek rack mount enclosure which takes only 5U (8.75 in.) of vertical rack space.  

The battery banks may be interconnected or “daisy chained” to provide exceptionally long battery runtimes and can be easily added in the field after the SSG units are installed and in service. In order to ensure a reasonable recharge time, Falcon offers an optional charger system housed in a separate 2U rack enclosure. Each 2U rackmount charger module can support up to two 4 AH chargers.

The 40 Amp hour batteries join other options for the industrial-grade SSG UPSs including, an SNMP/HTTP agent board, frequency converter and ICB conformal coating.

The SSG and SSG-RP models are designed to give users the highest level of protection against a wide spectrum of power problems. Ideal for protecting equipment in harsh environments, these units can operate in extreme temperatures from -30 C to 65 C.

In addition, the SSG UPSs provide continuous, clean, tightly regulated power from the most polluted incoming AC power source. Unlike offline and line-interactive UPS designs, the SSG and SSG-RP online UPSs act as an electronic firewall between incoming “dirty” power and sensitive micro-processor-based Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), computers and automated systems found in industrial environments.
