Rockwell Automation and American Power Conversion Corp. developed the Allen-Bradley 1609 UPS line of uninterruptible power supply products specifically for use with programmable controllers, control panels and industrial devices with similar power demands. Relatively small and lightweight, the UPS units deliver 500 volt-amperes for up to 9 min. and can be mounted on a DIN rail located inside a control panel. The UPS is equipped with Ethernet and serial ports that can link to a LAN for remote monitoring or communicate with an industrial PC. The products can also link directly to a programmable controller via a relay connection.
