CT Series

Designed for extreme environments, built for mission-critical applications

CT Series Overview

Clary’s CT Series is an on‑line double conversion UPS designed for unique mission‑critical applications, such as offshore drilling rigs, refineries and shipboard use. All CT Series utilize power factor correction and can double as an electronic power conditioner/frequency converter. Available in a 3U rack‑mount configuration with extended battery options, the CT Series is UL listed and supports RS232 and SNMP protocols. Custom configurations for various input/output voltages are available beyond the standard ratings of 1250/1500/2000 and 2400 VA. Clary will build each system to meet specific application needs. A wide range of selectable features includes input/output isolation, switchable voltages, auto‑sense capability, input circuit breaker protection, and input/output termination selection options. Please contact Clary and see how we can meet your unique requirements.
