UPS selection guide

Here, you can create your ideal UPS solution:

Modular solution

  1. Choose your power supply, e.g., QUINT POWER
  2. Choose your UPS module QUINT UPS
  3. Choose your power storage:
  • UPS-CAP for maximum service life
  • UPS-BAT/LI-ION for long service life with long buffer times
  • UPS-BAT/VRLA and VRLA-WTR for maximum buffer times

UPS with integrated power storage

Particularly space saving and easy to retrofit, the UPS module and power storage are combined in the same housing.

  • QUINT UPS: power storage with lead AGM technology
  • STEP UPS: LiPo-based power storage
  • UNO UPS: power storage with lead AGM technology
  • QUINT BUFFER buffer module: capacitor-based power storage

UPS with integrated power supply

The UPS module and power supply in a single housing is a space-saving solution. Only one power storage is required to complete the UPS system.

  • MINI UPS: for 24 or 12 V DC
  • TRIO UPS: for 24 V DC

QUINT UPS DC with UPS-CAP, UPS-BAT/VRLA-WTR, and UPS-BAT/LI-ION power storage

Example:

  • QUINT for 24 V DC applications
  • 20 A needs to be buffered for 6 minutes

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the load current and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in light green. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 20 A is required for 6 minutes, the ideal choice is the QUINT-UPS/24DC/24DC/20 in combination with the UPS-BAT/LI-ION/24DC/120WH power storage.

A suitable power supply needs to be connected upstream.

If “1+1” is also returned, you require two power storage devices with the same capacity.

QUINT UPS AC with UPS-CAP, UPS-BAT/VRLA-WTR, and UPS-BAT/LI-ION power storage

Example:

  • QUINT for 120/230 V AC applications
  • 90 W needs to be buffered for one hour

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the power and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in the color purple. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 90 W is required for one hour, the ideal choice is the QUINT-UPS/1AC/1AC/500VA in combination with the UPS-BAT/VRLA-WTR/24DC/13AH power storage.

A suitable power supply needs to be connected upstream.

QUINT UPS DC with UPS-BAT/VRLA power storage

Example:

  • QUINT for 24 V DC applications
  • 20 A needs to be buffered for 10 minutes

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the load current and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in the color red. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 20 A is required for 10 minutes, the ideal choice is the QUINT-UPS/24DC/24DC/20 in combination with the UPS-BAT/VRLA/24DC/12AH power storage.

A suitable power supply needs to be connected upstream.

If “1+1” is also returned, you require two power storage devices with the same capacity.

QUINT UPS AC with UPS-BAT/VRLA power storage

Example:

  • QUINT for 120/230 V AC applications
  • 125 W needs to be buffered for one hour

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the power and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in the color red. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 125 W is required for one hour, the ideal choice is the QUINT-UPS/1AC/1AC/500VA in combination with the UPS-BAT/VRLA/24DC/12AH power storage.

A suitable power supply needs to be connected upstream.

If “1+1” is also returned, you require two power storage devices with the same capacity.

Uninterruptible power supply with integrated MINI UPS and TRIO UPS power supplies

Example:

  • 2 A needs to be buffered for 20 minutes

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the load current and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in the color green. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 2 A is required for 20 minutes, the ideal choice is the MINI-DC-UPS/24DC/2 in combination with the MINI-BAT/24DC/1.3AH power storage.

Note:

With the MINI-DC-UPS/12DC/4, buffer times are double those of the MINI-DC-UPS/24DC/2. Available power storage devices: MINI-BAT/12DC/1.6AH (Order No. 2866572) and MINI-BAT/12DC/2.6AH (Order No. 2866569).

Uninterruptible power supply with integrated power storage

Example:

  • 5 A needs to be buffered for 20 minutes

Refer to the left-hand side of the diagram for the load current and to the top for the buffer time.

The result is shown in the color yellow. Compare your result with the key below. For an application where 5 A is required for 20 minutes, the ideal choice is the QUINT-UPS/24DC/24DC/10/3.4AH.

A suitable power supply needs to be connected upstream.
