Connect Tech Xtreme/PSU-UC

Ultracapacitor Based UPS, +5V, +12v, -12v, 3.3v & +5v SB, Extended Temperature

Manufacturer: Connect Tech Inc
Connect Tech Xtreme/PSU-UC

Connect Tech’s Xtreme/PSU-UC is a high efficiency, high powered PC/104 form factor power supply featuring a wide input voltage range that accepts +8 to+36V DC, and provides 115W total output power with +5V, +12V and +5V Standby output voltages.

Xtreme/PSU-UC features onboard Ultracapacitors to provide uninterrupted UPS backup capability. Because it uses Ultracapacitors in the place of batteries the Xtreme/PSU-UC can provide instant short term power backup in the event of a power loss or interruption, and be fully charged and ready to provide backup power again within seconds. The Xtreme/PSU-UPS uses rugged components and can operate in the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C / -40°F to +185°F.

Xtreme/PSU-UC can be used in combination with Connect Tech’s stackable CPU and expansion boards for a total design solution and is ideal for use in a broad range of rugged military and industrial applications.
