The Panduit Industrial Network UPS uses ultracapacitor technology instead of batteries, eliminating the No. 1 cause of conventional UPS failures, which lowers the risk of downtime. The no battery design is maintenance-free, providing twice the ROI and 50% to 70% lower cost of ownership than an ordinary UPS. Remote device management uses standard web browsers and is Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk Network compatible, saving time and money on proprietary software. Engineered to support efficient and reliable electrical power, the UPS is a Rockwell Automation Encompass Partner Program product, is EtherNet/IP conformance tested, and is UL508 Listed and approved for use in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations. Its single-piece construction and 80-mm width save valuable DIN rail space and -40 to 60 C operating temperature is suitable for harsh industrial and outdoor applications.
