UPS Power Supplies for Lift and Elevator Systems Back Up

ADM stocks a comprehensive range of MEAN WELL power supplies that have a built in battery back-up, or UPS function.

A number of these UPS power supplies are used in Australia to supply back-up power to communications and security camera monitoring systems inside lifts and elevators.

The MEAN WELL UPS power supplies which are most commonly used for these applications are:



The main factors that will determine which MEAN WELL UPS power supply is best suited to your own application are:

  • How you would like to mount the power supply inside your equipment.
  • The power output that you require for the load.
  • Size of battery that you wish to charge.

All of the above UPS power supplies have the ability to supply power to your load, whilst charging lead acid batteries at the same time.  Should the AC mains supply fail, the power supply will supply power to the load from the connected battery.

Some models, such as the MEAN WELL DRC-100 and MEAN WELL PSC-160, have a relay contact ‘Alarm’ signal which are used to indicate ‘AC OK’ and ‘battery low’. These are useful if you want to integrate the power supply into an automated control system.

Of course the whole idea of using a MEAN WELL UPS power supply is to ensure that there is a reliable power supply for your vital equipment, even when the AC power fails. So the last thing you want is the power supply being the cause of the failure.

There is no doubt that the protection against this occurring is to build extra redundancy in to your power system, but it is comforting to know that MEAN WELL is one of the most reliable power supplies available.

In fact MEAN WELL have been designing and building power supplies since 1986. During which time they have established a global reputation for manufacturing reliable power supplies, which are also cost effective.
