TBP4xxx: Ultracapacitor Backup Modules

Manufacturer: Tri-M Technologies



Ultra Capacitor Backup for HESC & HPSC

TBP4xxx modules are extended temperature, maintenance free, high cycling backup energy modules that when combined with a Tri-M HESC or HPSC smart charging power solution creates a complete uninterruptable power system (UPS) in a PC/104 footprint. The TBP4xxx designed for hostile environments of extreme temperatures and vibration. This rugged backup energy module is ideal for applications that have either a large number of discharge cycles or where a "maintenance free" solution is required such as remote and hard to access locations.

TBP4xxx Modules are available in 500, 1000, 2000 and 4000 joules and mate directly to the bottom of HESC or HPSC power supplies.
