Whitepaper: Selecting the right battery technology for long-lasting and safe DC UPS systems

The fail-safe availability of process-relevant systems and components begins quite fundamentally with the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and the associated protection against power failures, flicker, fluctuations or voltage dips in the DC power supply.

What factors must developers consider when selecting and sizing DC UPS systems?

The white paper shows the technological differences and selection criteria for energy storage. Supercaps, lithium iron phosphate cells (LiFePO4), conventional lithium ion cells (LCO/NMC), pure lead-tin and classic lead gel batteries are compared in terms of numerous parameters, i.a. cell structure, safety, energy and power density, lifetime, current carrying capacity,operating  temperature range, maintenance, transport, storage and initial and follow-up costs. In addition, the design and function of control and charging technology including the battery management system (BMS) are explained.

Nijkerk Electronics B.V.

Nijkerk Electronics was founded in Amsterdam in 1959 as a distributor of electronic components with subsidiaries in The Netherlands and Belgium. As one of the last independent companies of its kind Nijkerk Electronics succeeded in developing herself as one of the most im portant suppliers of semiconductors, passive com ponents, opto electro nics and modules. During the past 5 decades Nijkerk Electronics has invested strategically in state-of-the-art software and computer technology, as well as in-house engineering know- how, to optimize its role as a leading value added distributor of electronic components.
