UPS Power Quality (Flywheel Ride-Through) – VYCON’s VDC and VDC-XE DirectConnect UPS backup systems bring unprecedented power capacity for instantaneous and reliable backup power for today’s mission-critical applications. Utilizing clean energy storage from VYCON’s patented flywheel technology, the VDC and VDC-XE are the perfect solutions for users needing a more reliable and greener approach to backup power in place of hazardous lead acid based batteries. Compatible with most major brands of three-phase UPSs the systems interface with the DC bus of the UPS just like a bank of batteries, receiving charging current from the UPS and providing DC current to the UPS inverter during discharge.
VDC Technology – Serving as a mechanical battery, the flywheel is a kinetic energy storage system that replaces traditional backup batteries and performs in applications where batteries and other storage devices fall short. The VYCON flywheel stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is designed for high power, short discharge applications. VYCON’s patented technology used within the flywheel includes the flywheel hub that is formed from aerospace-grade steel, a high speed permanent magnet motor/generator, contact-free magnetic bearings that levitate and sustain the rotor during operation, and a superior touch-screen control system that provides vital information on system performance. These innovative technologies enable the VYCON flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles without degradation.
Configurations – Ride through to emergency stand-by generator, Battery hardening (parallel with batteries) & Glitch protection for industrial applications.
