Poll Question: What Type of UPS are Currently Using: Battery or Ultracapacitor?

According to our tech spotlight, Tech Spotlight: The Difference between an Ultracapacitor UPS and a Battery UPS, ultracapacitors have emerged as a new alternative for batteries in UPS systems. Ultracapacitor, also known as a supercapacitor, is a term referencing a family of high-capacitance devices which combine the properties of batteries and capacitors in a single device. In many ways, an ultracapacitor is simply a larger capacitor with bigger electrode plates and less distance between them, allowing for a higher charge to be stored in the form of electrical potential energy.

 

Ultracapacitor-based UPS is a relatively new alternative to the battery-based UPS systems. Ultracapacitor UPS is specifically designed for the industrial network and solves the challenges that plague battery-based UPS devices. They are ideal devices for bridging short power outages, lasting less than a minute.
