Energy product specialist Staco Energy Products has a new line of “mission-critical” three-phase uninterruptible power supplies, the FirstLine P series, which it says is particularly suited to radio and other broadcast applications.
The line, designed for 80–125 kVA jobs, can be run in parallel to up to eight units. It uses insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) technology and DSP for double conversion and an input power factor of 0.99 along with an input current distortion of 3% or less, according to Staco. These models are highly efficient, according to the company. Staco also claims that battery performance is “best in class.”
The units are hot-swappable and carry a two-year warranty.
According to a release: “The compact and reliable FirstLine P is ideal for information technology (IT) applications such as those found within the broadcast arena’s highly digitized environment, especially to protect transmitter exciters and HD Radio encoders, monitoring, remote control and Emergency Alert Systems, links to remote programming sources via digital telephony, satellite, etc., as well as office computers, standalone computers and computer networks for audio playback, program scheduling and more.”
The supplies will be at the spring NAB Show.
