UPS that uses supercapacitors integrates LoRa communications

November 26, 2018 // By Julien Happich
Sudden power failure or unstable electricity supply, even just for one minute, can result in damage to expensive production machinery. Industrial PC provider Arbor's SCP CUBE is an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) system that uses supercapacitors integrated with LoRa communication technology and sensors.

The SCP CUBE serves not only as a UPS but also as an IIoT sensor node and it can further work with central gateways and cloud servers to form a total Industrial IoT solution.
Compared to bulky battery-powered UPS that can supply electricity for hours, Arbor's supercapacitor-based UPS - SCP CUBE - provides backup power for a couple of minutes. Its main purpose is to allow the system to have enough time for a standard shutdown so as to guard against damage to hardware and software of built-in equipment.

Supercapacitors are environmentally friendly and safe and operate in a wide temperature range. Customers can configure a shutdown timer based on the number of software programs running on their IPC. The new system combines the company's internally-developed LoRa communication module, enabling it to collect data from sensor nodes deployed on production machinery, such as CPU load, temperature, current, voltage and power input, and send the data to the central gateway. This way, one central gateway can monitor data sent from hundreds of sensor nodes and respond to abnormality by initiating a system reset or other actions. ‎SCP CUBE with NB-IoT technology will be next on Arbor's product roadmap.
