Alpha Continuity 6K - 10K Datasheet
True Double Conversion On-line Technology
The Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series completely regenerates utility
power. It not only corrects and cleans the utility power, but the
VFI(Voltage Frequency Independence) of the Alpha Continuity 6K-10K
Series complies with the international EN62040-3 standards.
Dual Input Connections
The Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series provides single input connections
as standard. Optional input terminal connections for the bypass and
rectifier are available.
LCD/LED Mimic Panel
A precise LCD/LED display provides real time status and parameter
readings. These include AC Input and Output Voltage, Frequency,
Battery Voltage, Load Level, UPS temperature, etc. A full size,
user-friendly microprocessor based LCD display, provides advanced
monitoring functions and simple operation.
Energy-efficient UPS
The AC to AC efficiency of the Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series may be
up to 90% at 25% load and higher with larger loadings in normal VFI
(Voltage and Frequency Independent) operation. Using the ECO
mode, an efficiency of up to 97% can be achieved.

Advanced Battery Discharge Management
The Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series automatically manages the EndDischarge voltage of the internal batteries according to the load. The
ABDM function prevents the deep discharge of the batteries during a
power failure.
Silent Fan Control
The Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series employs variable-speed, forced air
cooling fans. These fans will vary in speed according to the percentage of
load. This variable-speed control ensures a low audible noise level making
the Alpha Continuity On-line UPS Series suitable for most environments
including offices and hospitals.
Communication Capability
The Alpha Continuity 6K-10K Series is shipped with monitoring and
shutdown software. The software allows the control and graceful shutdown
when utility power fails.
