    a big & expensive 3 phase UPS that will keep it from the up's & down's and protect the electronics.
    The mechanical parts are not that efffected as the movment stops slowlly.

    Mpst of the presses do not have a problem as power is rather stable.
    Why not take care of the electric network instead ?

    thank you very much sir Meny for your reply. we have big problem on power supply here in the philippines, we always experience sudden blackouts and power fluctuations. is there any other way to protect the electronics other than the expensive UPS?

    No cheap way than this.... use a power generator, but that also is not cheap.

    Sorry , but no other way.
    What kind of press is it. it may be the size of UPS you need for it's electronics is not that big.
    The actual press has no need any way.
    The real problem is not the power fall but the way it comes back - never stable.
    Good luck

    I think you will need a 5 KVA 3 phase UPS to cover you up for a few minutes every time the power falls.
    A god one can cost about 2000 US$ and you need to change batteries every 2-3 years
    This will be for the CP 2000 table only , not for the main press

    Hi, Just put a circuit that will prevent it from restarting or opening a circuit to your Cp2000 and power to your main cabinet electronics. Cheaper that way. Which shop do you work for?
