The uninterruptible power supply 640 mA is equipped with an integrated choke to decouple the bus line from the power supply. It also has connections for a rechargeable lead-acid battery to buffer the KNX voltage in case of mains failure. Up to two rechargeable lead-acid batteries can be connected and charged via the uninterruptible power supply. The charging voltage is controlled on the basis of temperatures using a temperature sensor. The uninterruptible power supply has a zero-voltage changeover switch for reporting a fault (e.g. mains failure, battery failure, overload or short circuit). Connection is made via KNX bus connection or junction terminals. A data rail is not required in this respect.
