In the global arena, Phoenix Contact leads the field in components, systems and solutions for use in electrical engineering, electronics and automation. The Group employs a workforce of around 17,400 spread between the 14 companies in its home country of Germany and more than 55 sales organizations all over the world. Its own international network is further reinforced by over 40 representatives throughout Europe and overseas. The foundations for this worldwide success largely lie in Phoenix Contact's innovative solutions, many of them award-winning ideas - most recently landing the "Innovation Award" for its Quint DC UPS, the first intelligent uninterruptible power supply.
What really stands out about the Quint DC UPS is how easily it can be incorporated into existing industrial networks, thanks to the flexibility achieved with (among other things) its integrated interfaces for PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and USB. In addition, the intelligent battery management system with IQ technology and high-performance battery charger ensures particularly high system availability. It was the smart combination of these eye-catching features that also grabbed the attention of the panel of judges appointed by "Schaltschrankbau" magazine, published by TeDo, which ultimately helped the Quint DC UPS clinch its "Innovation Award 2019". The magazine awards this title to five outstanding innovations each year that are deemed to boost the competitiveness of Germany’s switchgear engineering industry at the same time as meeting operators' increasing requirements. With these criteria firmly in mind, the panel of experts pinpointed the first intelligent uninterruptible power supply from Phoenix Contact as a particularly progressive solution for the sector.
