SCU Modular UPS Applied to FAST, 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope

Astronomy Case——SCU Modular UPS Applied to FAST, 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope

The Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS) announced that its new 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), China TOP Nine Science &Technology Infrastructure, was ready to use in September 2016. With an area equal to 30 soccer fields, this behemoth is now the largest filled-in, single-dish radio telescope in the world.

As the world’s largest single-aperture telescope, its scientific impact on astronomy is extraordinary, and it is certainly revolutionizing the natural sciences.



To ensure reliable modular UPS systems to the super large Telescope, Fast has an extremely high demand on the stability and reliability of UPS power supply equipment, whose performance directly affecting the accuracy and stability of astronomical observations.

As an excellent provider of power supply and distribution system solutions for scientific data centers, SCU takes the lead in providing the most suitable power supply and distribution solutions and excellent supporting facilities for the fields of earth simulation, meteorological environmental protection, aerospace data, astronomical exploration, and deep learning.


As one of the cooperative partner, SCU provided complete power supply guarantee with its CMS series 3 phase UPS and Modular N+X solution, which features with high reliability and high cost-efficiency. Only available to get 1 fixed redundancy on standalone UPS 1+1 solution, in modular ups each power module could be the X as redundancy which gets higher reliability.

CMS Modular UPS System60KVA system, 10KVA power module, N+X redundancy system, THDI<3%, overall efficiency≥ 98%.
