The TALOS 2080 – 24 volt SMART UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) provides support for 24V systems. Originally developed to support the MAX Watchdog System, the unit can be utilised to provide uninterrupted power supply to any system requiring 24 volts.

The TALOS 2080 - 24 volt UPS provides full management of shut downs and restarts and under normal running conditions it will automatically buck or boost the input voltage to maintain a smooth transient free 24V 5A DC supply regardless of input voltage. When the input voltage fails, or falls outside preset limits the backup battery is invoked. The transition between backup and pass-through mode is both seamless and glitch free.

The TALOS 2080 provides fully configurable management via the RS-232 interface to control limit requirements as well as start-up, shutdown and restart sequences providing invaluable protection to industrial PC’s or any other critical and sensitive 24 volt components.
