Uninterruptible power supply for the Up Board
Compatible with all UP Boards

The new S.USV UPs with integrated and adjustable charger, includes useful and innovative additional functions and is perfectly suited for complex work in the extended voltage range with all UP Boards.
The S.USV UPs is an advanced power supply additional module for UP Boards, with the main focus on the uninterruptible power supply of the single-board computer. The module also provides additional functions in order to optimize the operation of the UP Boards by the user. Among other things, this has the ability to adjust the integrated charging current to 300mA (standard), 500mA, or 1A, causing much faster battery charging time.
The S.USV UPs is a fully functional plug & play solution. The power supply occurs directly through the GPIO on the UP Board and therefore uses a common voltage source, thus no additional cabling or power supply needed. In addition, the module is equipped with a LiPo battery. An integrated boost switching power converter covers the necessary voltage range, thereby the UP Board shut down safely in case of misconduct and prevent data loss. The S.USV UPs also provides a power input for the extended voltage range of 7 – 24 volts (solar cells, automotive applications, etc.).
To ensure uninterrupted power supply of the UP Board, the S.USV UPs offers a fully integrated monitoring - system with a wide spectrum of operating options. All possible operating states of the UP Board are monitored internally, so the module is always in a position to respond to misbehavior accordingly. If, for example, the power supply of the single-board computer falls below the adjustable voltage threshold, the S.USV UPs automatically switches to battery mode and keeps the functionality of the Up Board over an by the user adjustable time period constant and bridges the power failure or shut down the single board-computer in case of a long-term power outage securely.
All these features work automatically. In Addition, the operator has the opportunity to check and control all operating states or switching operations on a software including mobile application via smartphone or tablet.

Information about battery life
The following data is intended to provide an overview of the UPS's bridging time in the event of a power failure, measured with a remaining battery capacity of 70-80% and a peripheral power consumption of +/- 500mA
- Battery 3000mAh (optional): 4-5 hours bridging time
- Battery 300mAh (included in package): 30 minutes bridging time
(The measured bridging times with respect to the measured current consumption are no guarantee details and may differ depending on the peripheries)
