Falcon Electric’s Advanced SC On-line UPS Wins
Consulting-Specifying Engineering Magazine’s 2017 Product of the Year Competition

Judges Select Falcon Electric Second Year in a Row

IRWINDALE, Calif. – April 13, 2017 – Falcon Electric, Inc., a leader in on-line UPS and backup of mission-critical applications, announces that its SC On-line Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) has won finalist in the 2017 Product of the Year awards by the judges of Consulting-Specifying Engineering (CSE) magazine. Placing in the Emergency, On-site Standby Power category, the technically advanced 700 to 3kVA UPS raises the bar in performance technology not found in other UPSs.

The magazine’s subscribers will vote online for the winner at the CSE website beginning today. Voting closes on June 30, 2017 and category winners will be notified on September 14, 2017.

The SC UPS models represent the next generation of power protection through the use of high frequency and advanced Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and Surface Mount Device (SMD) technologies as well as five-year, long-life batteries. This is a game-changer within the UPS industry, as the combined technologies in the SC UPS provide higher reliability and the use of fewer components resulting in a lower total cost of ownership (TOC).

Engineering Advances Offer Numerous Benefits

The SC models are designed for protecting IT/IoT equipment, telecommunications, servers, security systems and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Unlike other UPS systems that don’t use DSP or use an earlier-version of DSP technology, Falcon’s SC models are based on one of the most advanced and high-frequency DSPs offering:

  • •     More accurate measurements of output voltage and currents;
  • •     Fast response to overload and over-voltage conditions;
  • •     The potent computation of the DSPs allows the addition of special safety features that protect users and the integrity of the UPS power components.

Falcon’s customers will appreciate other features, including wide range of input voltages (90Vac to 150Vac) and input frequencies, and a user-friendly LCD display.

Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s Product of the Year (POY) program is the premier award for new products in the mechanical, fire/life safety, electrical, lighting, plumbing, and related nonresidential building systems market. The annual reader-choice program provides Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s audience with information about the top new product in their fields. 2017 will mark 13 years of the POY program.
