Key product features 

  • Delivers durability and high short-circuit withstand.
  • The rapid opening and closure of its contacts – combined with arcing chambers – provides Sirco AC with improved breaking performance.
  • The mechanical position indicator can be seen in all circumstances as it is locate directly on the sliding bar contact mechanism.  
  • The use of glass fibre reinforced polyester gives the Sirco and Sirco AC high mechanical and thermal resistance.
  • Simple to deploy, the standardisation across the range delivers cost reductions in terms of stock management and storage, thanks to the use of common accessories.

SOCOMEC UPS were the first manufacturer in France to offer static power supplies in 1968. In 1980 they were the first to design a UPS with PWM technology, 1996 saw them being the first to integrate IGBT technology with major power sources and in 2000, SOCOMEC became the first designer to integrate a UPS with a modular rack system.

Since then they have also been the first to integrate hybrid components in 2001, they developed the first 200kVA UPS to include an IGBT rectifier in 2003 and came up with new battery charging designs in 2004. In 2006 they also developed a replacement for the traditional battery based solution by creating a dynamic energy storage system.
