Compulab fit-Uptime is a tiny UPS designed for mini-PCs


Yokneam, Israel – 21-Oct-15 – CompuLab is introducing fit-Uptime – a miniature 12V DC UPS designed for Compulab fanless fit-PC product line and compatible with Intel® NUC and other mini-PCs.

When power is lost, don’t miss a bit

Mini-PCs are becoming popular in mission critical setups that require near 100% uptime, but limited reliability of electric grid is a major concern, and standard AC UPS is too bulky in most cases. fit-Uptime was designed to fill the gap. It is smaller than a mini-PC power-supply-unit, yet powerful enough to power a mini-PC during a black-out – in some cases for over 3 hours. “In a mini-PC system abrupt power loss is by far the most significant reliability problem” said Irad Stavi, Chief Product Officer at Compulab. “fit-Uptime turns this major problem to a negligible one. With fit-Uptime issues like bricking, file-system corruption, downtime and failed reboots are likely to be non-existent.”

Reliability, the simple way

fit-Uptime is a true plug-and-play device. Plug the power-supply into fit-Uptime, plug fit-Uptime into your mini-PC. Your mini-PC is now protected against lost power.
On power loss fit-Uptime instantly switches to backup-battery power ensuring the mini-PC does not reset. When powered, fit-Uptime powers the mini-PC and charges while at the same time recharging the battery.
When used with Compulab fit-PC products, the power connector twist-locks to prevent accidental plug pull-out.
fit-Uptime can be used as a portable 12V battery pack.

fit-Uptime is paying for itself in advance

Abrupt power loss has many hidden costs. By addressing it, fit-Uptime can save costs throughout the entire life cycle of the product.
– Power loss is a critical asynchronous event that requires exhaustive system testing before fielding. fit-Uptime allows reduction in testing and shorter time-to-market.
– fit-Uptime increases MTBF and reduces RMA and truck rolls.
– fit-Uptime greatly improves system availability and dependability
