Reliable and service-free buffer module for 24V-systems

The new capacitor buffer module UF40.241 is a supplementary device which can bridge voltage dip or loss for regulated DC 24V power supplies.

The already successful 20A module is now  also  available  for  40A applications.

The UF40.241 can seamlessly bridge failures of the DC voltage supply system and can also extend the hold-up time after loss of the AC mains voltage.

Depending  on  the  output current  the  minimum  hold-up  time can be 160ms at 40A and goes up to several seconds at lower loads.

Especially  in  regions  with  poor  mains  quality,  the  buffer  module  can  help  to  uphold  the supply  voltage  so  process  data  can  be  saved  and  processes  can  be  completed  in  a controlled manner.

The buffer module is also suitable for applications where a short-term peak current is required that exceeds the current rating of the power supply unit.

The UF40.241 can easily be added parallel to the load circuit at any given point and works autonomously in the background. The life span of the buffer modules is adapted from the life  span  of  the  power  supplies. 

It  utilizes  service-free  electrolytic  capacitors  –  a  more efficient and eco-friendly alternative to lead acid batteries – for storing the energy which allows usage even at ambient temperatures from -25°C up to +70°C. Furthermore, buffer modules can be connected in parallel to increase the output ampacity or the hold-up time.
