The highly advanced industrial UPS of the Futura series by LAYER ELECTRONICS are developed in way to ensure total security from problems related to mains.

Layer’s most recent development in industrial UPS, the Futura series represents the state-of-the-art in quality and technology, accumulated by LAYER ELECTRONICS in more than 50 years of experience in the field of the stabilization and static conversion of the energy.

Since its introduction on the market on 2005, the Futura series of industrial UPS has shown great reliability and robustness, becoming the top product and finding application in the most different situations, both civil and military (CAGE/NCAGE/NATO code: AD484). In fact, for example, UPS of the Futura series are installed on board of the aircraft carriers of the Italian Military Navy.

The high reliability is due to the high professional level of components used and to its simplicity.

The management through Digital Signal Processor (DSP) allows so many controls to also protect the UPS and the connected load under the harshest electric conditions, environmental and in overload. Particular attention is given in safeguarding the connected load through an insulation transformer in output. The FUTURA series of industrial UPS is a high technology product thanks to its operating system and, being the only one of its kind you can connect multiple units in adaptive parallel, it is ideal for very high loads.

If a generating set works, the FUTURA series of industrial UPS limits battery charging current not to overload the generating set.

The Futura series of industrial UPS is available in 1-Ph version from 5 kVA to 50 kVA (available also with 3-Ph input) and in 3-Ph version from 5 kVA to 1600 kVA.
