TX Series Isolated UPS Systems

TX Series. Isolated UPS Systems

The TX Series are isolated UPS Systems, incorporating isolation transformers providing the highest degrees of power protection. Suitable for use in the harshest of electrical environments the TX Series ensures that attached loads are provided with stable, pure power at all times. Ideal for laboratory or industrial applications.

To avoid voltage regulation issues, and to provide additional protection, the unit is isolated on it’s input. This means the load is connected to the UPS output which is stable regardless of any current surges that the load may demand. Further benefit is obtained in that any earth leakage is contained within the secondary of the isolation transformer, eg unlike standard UPS system, earth leakage is not cumulative. The net result is that – on pluggable systems – the touch current is always close to zero. This is a benefit, not only for patient vicinity applications, but for applications where cumulative earth leakage is an issue.

The high power factor means the systems are capable of supporting high powered loads without having to oversize. Available in 1000VA/900W, 3000VA/2700W, 6000VA/6000W and 10KVA/10KW models. Some competitor models offer power factor of only 0.7 or 0.8

The units are fully configurable through the front panel LCD. As well as output voltage adjustment, the battery charging current can also be adjusted. This allows high capacity battery packs to be added as well as prolonging internal battery life by reducing the current limit. The matching battery packs offer the possibility of extending the runtime a minimum of fourfold with the addition of each cab.

Modes of operation are consistent throughout the range, ensuring user knowledge is consistent, regardless if using the units on a small benchtop system or a large laboratory analyser.

Being of online double conversion topology the units provide protection against the 10 recognised power quality problems. With the addition of a full isolation transformer the units include protection against the largest surges and also provide added safety for when use in water based systems is required.

Installation has been made easier as well. The extra weight of the transformer makes positioning of such UPS difficult and so each unit above 1KVA is fitted with wheels and comes on a pallet that allows easy roll off. This means the unit can be pump trucked to the lab, unloaded and simply wheeled into position.
