Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) Power Conditioning Unit
with Battery Array

CODAR Product Code: UPS1500-6B-120V or UPS1500-6B-220V

Product Description:
An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) connecting the SeaSonde unit to power source (e.g. wall plug) will provide a layer of protection to electronics from power surges that come from power line and also provide for continued quality performance through power fluctuations (sometimes referred to as “brownouts”). UPS is rated at least 1500VA (1050 watts).

To provide power to SeaSonde when normal power is not available (sometimes referred to as a “blackout”) the UPS, connected to a 6-battery array will provide power for continued operation. The UPS & Battery Array will supply 500 watts for approximately 8 hours.

A sturdy 19” equipment rack (CODAR Product Code RACK1) is included with the UPS with 6-battery array. This equipment rack will hold UPS and all 6 batteries, with space available for mounting SeaSonde remote unit electronics.

The UPS with Battery Array is intended to only provide power conditioning and emergency power to the SeaSonde. Neither air-conditioning unit nor any other electronics operating at site should be connected to the UPS with Battery Array.

Note: SeaSonde will auto-shutoff if internal chassis temperatures exceed safe levels, to avoid heat damage, and will continue to attempt restarting itself until safe operating temperatures have returned.

UPS with Battery Array and equipment rack are intended for indoor use only.
