Control Engineering Magazine Recognizes Falcon’s SC UPS as a Finalist in
2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards

The 700VA to 3kVA Rackmount SC On-line UPS provides the next-generation of power protection for PLCs, SCADA systems, instrumentation, Smart Machines and PC-based controls

IRWINDALE, Calif. – November 17, 2016Falcon Electric, Inc., a leader in on-line uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) and backup of mission-critical applications deployed in harsh environments, announces that its SC UPS models have been recognized as a finalist by Control Engineering magazine for its 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards. Falcon’s SC UPS won in the Power — Energy, power protection, UPS category, and is now eligible to compete in all categories. Control Engineering’s subscribers can cast their ballots at: through December 21, 2016.

“It’s an honor for our new SC UPS to achieve finalist distinction by the Control Engineering judges,” said Michael D. Williams, product manager for Falcon Electric. “It’s not every day that true advancements happen in the 700VA to 3kVA UPS power category, and we’re very excited to deliver to our industrial customers the most technically advanced and efficient power protection solution for their power-hungry SCADA and process systems.”

Designed especially for applications such as PLCs, SCADA systems, automation, instrumentation, smart machines (IIOT) and PC-based controls, Falcon’s on-line, double-conversion SC UPS models represent the next generation of power protection. This is achieved through the use of high frequency and advanced Digital Signal Processor (DSP) technology and Surface Mount Technology (SMT) as well as other innovations. This is a game-changer within the UPS industry, as these combined technologies provide higher reliability, use fewer components and offer a more robust system.

Unlike other UPS systems that don’t use DSP technology or use an earlier-version DSP technology, the SC models use one of the most advanced and high frequency DSP (Texas Instrument’s TMS320f28035). The high performance DSP provides:

•     More accurate measurements of output voltage and currents
•     Fast response to overload and over-voltage conditions
•     The addition of special safety features to protect the users as well as the integrity of the UPS power components.

Engineers will especially appreciate many other features and benefits of the SC UPS, including wide range of input voltages (90Vac to 150Vac) and input frequencies, rack/tower configuration, programmable 50/60 Hz frequency converter and more.

For increased battery reliability, the SC models use an innovative battery boost topology to reduce components and increase efficiency. This new topology is more efficient than other topologies used for battery boost circuits by other UPS companies.

The new SC UPS models are available now and list for $890 for the 700VA model. For more information on the award-winning SC UPS models, please contact Falcon at 800-842-6940 or email In addition, follow Falcon Electric on Twitter @FalconUPS.
