Dual-Layer Capacitor Batteries from Phoenix Contact
UPS capacitor-battery module.
Middletown, PA — Phoenix Contact has introduced capacitor-based dual-layer batteries for its QUINT UPS-IQ line. Like the lithium-ion battery introduced earlier this year, the capacitor battery has 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 over the temperature range of -20 and +60°C. It has an operational lifespan of up to 20 years based upon the ambient conditions.

The original VRLA battery, by contrast, is rated for use between temperatures of 0 to +40°C before experiencing severe derating and operational issues. Using the QUINT UPS-IQ with the capacitor battery reduces the need to replace the batteries frequently, which can be challenging in harsh conditions.

The QUINT UPS-IQ family 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).
