Staying on the air is vital for broadcasters, especially 24 hour newsrooms. Any disruption from the grid supply is unacceptable. For many broadcasters, a short loss of power can mean several hours to restore full services to their various channels. Transmitters are especially sensitive to power anomalies and even a momentary power glitch can trigger transmitters to experience hard shutdown, causing costly damage to transmitter components. The special needs of transmitting systems place extraordinary demands on Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems.

VYCON® Direct Connect (VDC) Energy Storage Systems offer an excellent alternative to the shortcoming of UPS batteries and provide a proven solution for handling expensive crowbar events. It is particularly beneficial in situations where high reliability is required, space is at a premium and/or environmental conditions make the installation of battery systems inconvenient or expensive.
