Stop "Flying Blind" During a Power Outage: Panduit's Industrial Network Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Panduit Industrial Uninterruptable Power Supply

The Panduit Industrial UPS uses Ultracapacitors instead of batteries, eliminating the #1 cause of UPS failures which, in turn, lowers the risk of downtime. The return-on-investment is up to two times better and Cost of Ownership is 50 to 70% lower than an ordinary UPS. Easy remote device management uses standard web browsers and FactoryTalk** interoperability.

Ordinary UPS solutions rely on batteries; if your UPS battery fails, your risk of downtime goes up. Batteries require maintenance, adding operating and overhead expenses (inspections, testing, replacement and disposal).

In a Power Outage, Every Second Counts

Besides a dead alarm clock and warm produce, power outages can cause more serious and costly problems. Within a manufacturing plant, power outages are a manager’s worst nightmare, costing thousands annually in lost productivity.

Manufacturing firms encounter approximately 3-4 power outages per year. Even a short power “blip” of less than a second shuts down industrial managed switches, connecting equipment, and machinery to the enterprise. The end-result is a restart time of 3-5 minutes, bringing business and manufacturing operations to a grinding halt.

Lost Power Equals Lost Revenue

During a power outage, operators sit idle or “fly blind” waiting for Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) to reboot and production to restart. A 3-5 minute restart time costs manufacturing firms a staggering $2,107 per outage, totaling upwards of $8,217 annually.

Using Panduit’s Industrial Network Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for backup virtually eliminates long restart times. This system pays for itself in as little as 1-3 months by preventing equipment restarts caused by short power interruptions. To avoid time-consuming and costly maintenance, this system operates without the use of conventional UPS batteries.
