Critical applications supported by new Zone 1 UPS system

Extronics has recently launched its new iUPS101 Uninterruptible Power Supply system which is certified for use in ATEX Zone 1 hazardous areas and provides back-up 230V AC power for up to 35 minutes, at 3kVA full load at 20°C.

In the event of a blackout or brownout, the iUPS101 is well suited for protecting instrumentation and control systems, navigation or landing lighting, or blow out prevention systems.

An additional battery pack can be integrated to double the back-up time to a maximum of 70 minutes with a 3kVA load at 20°C.  The modular design also allows a complete additional iUPS101 unit to be attached to create a system which can support a maximum load of 6kVA for 70 minutes at 20°C ambient temperature.

Designed to be wall mounted, the iUPS101 UPS system is comprised of an aluminium alloy Ex‘d’ charger/inverter enclosure, a stainless steel Ex ‘e’ terminal enclosure and a stainless steel iBATT100 Ex ‘e’ battery enclosure containing maintenance-free valve regulated lead acid batteries.

The Ex ‘e’ enclosure is ‘close coupled' to the Ex‘d’ enclosure via cable bushings, thus alleviating the need to open the Ex‘d’ enclosure and easing access to incoming/outgoing cables. The Ex ‘d’ enclosure has a glass window that shows various alarm and status information on the system and comes complete with door mounted Ex‘d’ buttons to configure the UPS charging conditions and input/output supplies.
