Spica Back-up Module

>> Keeps the controller running in spite of power failure <<

The Spica Backup Unit is designed with ultra-capacitors that ensure the wind turbine owner that the unit is working properly all the time. In addition, the back-up unit supplies power to the controller for several minutes, so all data is collected during power failure, making fault finding easier.

Spica Technology has developed the back-up unit with ultra-capacitors for our own control systems, and it is also a part of the design in systems developed in cooperation with different customers.

“In the design and development face of the back-up unit, we focused very much on the working conditions of the module. For example, the back-up unit is designed with ultra-capacitors to give a reliable system supply under all conditions, even very low temperatures. Also, the unit weighs much less than units with batteries, and this makes it much less vulnerable to the vibrations in the wind turbine,” explains Lars Gleesborg, founder of Spica Technology.
