Network-ready, Control Cabinet UPS with EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, and USB

October 11, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Phoenix Contact’s new QUINT DC UPS is the first industrial UPS platform to provide real-time information about a battery’s health over standard industrial networking protocols, such as EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET, EtherCAT®, and USB.

With this data, the user knows the state of the UPS system before there is a problem. This enables a proactive approach to battery management and lowers the total cost of ownership.

The QUINT DC UPS is an intelligent modular solution that provides critical system backup to supply loads in the event of mains failures and indicates the operating and battery states. The battery management system (BMS) with IQ technology and a powerful battery charger ensure power reliability within a control system.

Device variants are each available with Industrial Ethernet network interfaces or simply as status contacts only. Networking enables the system to be monitored, configured, or shut down safely from any location.
