The system is using Socomec’s state of the art UPS equipment in combination with ULTIMO® Lithium Ion Capacitors, supplied by JM Energy Corporation.
The UPS system, supplied by SOCOMEC, has been designed to provide short-term back-up power to critical support equipment. By protecting installations from power drops in the seconds to minutes range, damages caused by such short term interruptions will be avoided, manufacturing downtime will be reduced and the cost of productivity loss due to process interruptions will be lowered significantly. This innovative solution overcomes the limitations of the traditional storage systems for UPS particularly for those applications working in critical environments where hazardous substances are not allowed, applications with severe ambient conditions and where long recharging time is a constraint. The use of a cell-to-cell monitoring makes this a fully integrated system that enhances the power availability for the load. A first system is already demonstrating flawless operation at the JSR Micro NV facility, protecting its critical equipment.
ULTIMO® Lithium Ion Capacitors, supplied by JSR Micro NV in Europe, are used as the energy storage device within the UPS. By integrating them in modules that are sized for plug-and-play installation into conventional UPS-equipment, a safe, compact and easy to integrate solution is obtained that gives maximum flexibility for sizing towards a specific requirement. In addition, the life characteristics of the ULTIMO® devices result in a maintenance free solution for critical back-up applications at the lowest cost of ownership.
A Lithium Ion Capacitor is a type of hybrid supercapacitor, combining properties of Lithium Ion Batteries with properties of Electric Double Layer Capacitors. As a result, they offer a high energy density and a high power density in combination with an outstanding cycle life and are safe to use.
