  • Product Line: Battery Accessories
AFP 10 Series UPS

Product Highlights

  • >92% energy efficiency
  • Operates at optimal efficiency at 50-100% of the load
  • All modules are hot swappable
  • Scalable architecture and modular design
  • Unique Twin Sine Inverter (TSI) technology filters out harmonics on the AC input and provides AC power filtering and conditioning
  • Available N+1 redundancy (5kVA and 7.5kVA); only one module is required for redundancy, rather than an entire system.
  • Description

    The AFP 10 is a continuous duty, single-phase, double-conversion, solid-state uninterruptible power supply designed specifically for fire protection alarm/signal systems. Its operational level of greater than 92% power efficiency results in less power usage than typical UPS systems. With an optimal system efficiency at 50 to 100% of load, additional inverter and/or rectifier modules may be added to the system with no negative impact on system efficiency.

    Rectifiers charge the batteries only when necessary and the charging capacity of the system rectifiers is proportional to battery capacity. This optimizes battery recharge time and minimizes the number of rectifiers necessary to support the batteries.

    The unique Twin Sine Inverter (TSI) modules provide harmonic filtering and conditioning of the AC input and AC output power. Compensation for fluctuations in input power combined with full sine wave output eliminates the need to draw power from the DC supply and extends the operational life of the DC system.

    All modules are hot swappable, each module can disconnect itself from the system in event of failure, and each module can operate as part of a bypass of AC power to the load. Additionally, the scalable architecture of the AFP 10 allows flexibility for easy future system expansion.
