Answer - TOldengarm - April-13th-2018

Hi there,

I have a question regarding the uninterrupted power supply (UPS). As of my understanding, the netPi doesn't come with a UPS. Is it possible to add a UPS to the netPi? We need the system to be able to safely shutdown when there is an (un)intended power loss.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Thomas,

your understanding is correct. netPI is powered by external 24Volts and does not include any battery or similar circuits that could power it for a amount of time until is has shut down. So if you are asking about "is it possible to add a UPS" then I have to say no.

The only chance you have to put in between netPI and your main such as a MINI-DC-UPS/24DC/2 from Phoenix Contact.
