  • DC UPS modules

    I use a lot of PULS UB10.241 DC UPS modules and they work great but are expensive (around $385). I noticed that there is now a Rhino PSM24-BCM360S that is similar except that it requires a 24vdc battery.

    I would like to see this model with an offering that includes the converter built in that would allow it to work with a 12VDC battery.

    24VDC batteries are too expensive, and are not commonplace enough in rural america for them to be practical. Putting 12vdc batteries in series adds a list of other potential uh-ohs we don't want.

      What is wrong with putting two 12v's in series? After all, a 12v battery is nothing more than six 2.2v cells in series in the same container.

        Mainly for space. You should see some of the pump rooms I deal with. We often use a 40 to 100AH deep cycle battery that is readily available, stick it in a marine battery box on a shelf or the floor of the room with flexible conduit connecting to fuses in our RTU panels. Finding a simple way to connect two of them in series would not be quite so easy. And if/when one of those batteries begins to fail, there would be the headaches of troubleshooting it. Our system with the PULS controller is proven and simple, just expensive.
