J. Schneider CAPTEC 2410

J. Schneider CAPTEC 2410 Capacitor buffered Power Supply, The DC-UPS of the series CAPTEC includes ultra-capacitors as energy storage inside the housing. This capacitor is charged with the system voltage during normal operation.

The connected loads are supplied as well from the system voltage. In case of an interruption of the system voltage the energy of the ultra-capacitors is released in a regulated way. With a dc/dc converter, the load is supplied by the capacitor until it is discharged. The back-up time depends on the state of charge of the capacitor and on the discharge current.


The DC-UPS has the following characteristics:

  • Maintenance-free because of long-life ultra-capacitors
  • Microcontroller based charging and discharging of the ultra-capacitors
  • Parameterizable via USB interface with the TECControl-Software
  • Control of operation and status of charge with LED’s and signal contacts
