Ultra-wide temperature voltage regulator


Electronics CEL

Falcon Electric, Inc. announced the new line of SVR Pro Series Ultra-Wide Temperature ac power line regulator, with models from 1 to 3 kVA.


The SVR Pro Series ultra-high temperature UPS has been designed to operate reliably in temperature environments beyond the capability of standard commercially available UPS products. Having an operational temperature range of -30 to 65 C makes the SVR Pro Ultra ideal for use in protected locations where temperature control is a problem.


In 2007 Falcon Electric unveiled the first commercially available, off-the-shelf (COTS) military/industrial grade product, rated to 65 C. The SVR Pro Ultra has been redesigned to meet even more demanding temperature extremes.  As an example of one of the product upgrades, the LCD display has been replaced with a high-temperature LED display, which is made from material that is more tolerant of both lower and higher temperatures.  In addition, internal components have been upgraded to handle more extreme conditions.



"Current users of the SVR Pro Series Voltage Regulator, such as the U.S. military, have been impressed with the precise voltage regulation and the fact that this unit is designed to operate in extreme environments, such as Afghanistan and Iraq," said Falcon’s VP of Engineering, Mike Stout. "We also have many industrial customers, especially those in the petroleum and food processing industries."


The solid-state voltage regulation SVR Pro Series Ultra is a true double-conversion on-line UPS, which is designed to give users the highest level of protection against a wide spectrum of power problems. It provides clean, tightly regulated, sinewave output power even when operating from a dirty incoming AC power source. Unlike other off-the-shelf line-interactive UPS designs, the SSG-RP Series acts like an electronic firewall between incoming "dirty" power, protecting the most sensitive microprocessor-based equipment.


For unattended OS shutdown and easy monitoring of the UPS system, Falcon’s UPSilon shutdown and management software supports Windows platforms, including Vista, as well as Novell NetWare 5 & 6, Linux, and FreeBSD. UPSilon for UNIX is available at an additional cost and supports most popular UNIX platform and OS versions.


For remote monitoring and management of industrial networks, including humidity, smoke, physical entry, and water detection, users may purchase an optional USHA SNMP/HTTP agent board that installs directly inside the UPS, providing a TCP-IP addressable, 10/100 Ethernet communication node. The USHA supports IPv4, IPv6, SNMPv3, and RADIUS.


The SSG-RP Series Ultra features Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) with NFPA-70, NEC 645-11 compliant operation.
