Latest STO-P UPS series
added a high power UPS STO-P
to our expanding line of STO-P Power Fault Protectors. The
new STO-P UPS40xx series
is capable of handling up to 40 amps continuously and is fitted
with an internal backup battery that eliminates undervoltage
conditions caused by engine cranking, brownout or blackout.
||It's extremely rugged, housed in a diecast aluminum case sealed to IP65
standards and rated over a -40C to +85C temperature range. It has all the
standard 'time domain' suppression features that have made STO-P so popular
in the past.
' Time Domain ' Approach
works in the 'time domain' and applies different techniques to 'trap', 'block', 'dissipate' or 'fill' (TBDF), or otherwise remove, each event as it occurs. For example,
a fast rising high voltage transient usually occurs just prior to a charging
system failure. But, a few hundred microseconds later an extreme Overvoltage
condition follows. The first event is detected and suppressed by STO-P,
but as the fault continues and transforms into a dangerous overvoltage condition,
other 'trap', 'block', 'dissipate' or 'fill' (TBDF) methods are successively used to protect the
We divide Fault Events
into time domains:
0: 1 nanosecond to 1 microsecond
1: 1 us to 1 millisecond
2: 1 ms to 15 ms
3: 15 ms to 1 second
4: over 1 second
Then, depending on the 'fault characteristics' detected, we use different TDBF techniques to remove or suppress the fault.
This broad spectrum Time-Domain approach allows us to achieve maximum possible suppression of fault conditions. The downside is that it costs more than the 'standard' ineffective methods, but that cost is spread over the entire bank of electronics carried on the vehicle or vessel. So overall it is
extremely cost effective to install, and yields great savings in maintenance and repair costs.
users are familiar with the problems of 'brownout' when AC Main voltages
dip to a level where memory is corrupted. The same undervoltage effect
occurs in 12/24/28 volt d.c. powered systems. The momentary starting of
an engine, or the sudden increase in load due to some other equipment can
cause small voltage dips that can destroy the memory on a GPS or onboard
computer system. STO-P is 'UPS Enabled' - when voltage levels dip, the
backup battery will automatically supply power (up to 45 amps!) to your
due to premature failures, and costly service calls are eliminated.
For the Vendor, it means better Client relationships and far less frustration
for field technicians! For the 'End-User', it means years of reliable equipment
operation, free from 'bugs' and 'glitches'.
you need a clean source of power - STO-P will meet or exceed your expectations.
