Automated systems come in all stripes – from SCADA systems controlling the extraction, processing or transmission of oil, to process systems in a bottling plant. Regardless of the industrial application, automated systems all rely on a steady flow of clean, regulated ac power. These control systems are often subjected to a harsh temperature environment meaning that all elements of the automated system, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), sensors and the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) must exceed the 0°C to 40°C specification of most off-the-shelf UPS products.
