In these models the efficiency has been increased even more: 95.4% at CP10.361 and 95.5% at CP10.481. This means less stress on the electronic components and a higher energy efficiency.

PULS announces the new 1kW Power Supply and Charger for 400V UltraCaps in one Unit

The new PAS395 from PULS GmbH can be used as a regular power supply with an adjustable output voltage between 360V and 460V or as a charger for EDLC-capacitors (Electrical Double Layer Capacitors commonly known as Ultracaps, Supercaps or Greencaps)

DC UPS with adjustable output voltage - PULS

General power outages or unexpected shut-downs can cause damage and high costs in control systems. This can be avoided by using a DC UPS. In the DIMENSION UB20 series, PULS offers a new DC UPS for universal use for output currents up to 20 A.

The UB20 is self-explanatory, easy to operate and has extensive battery diagnostics and many protective functions installed. The output of the DC UPS is decoupled from the input. Load circuits can therefore be split very simply into buffered and unbuffered branches. The energy of the battery can thus be used selectively.
