Micro ups and safe shutdown

#1

Hi there, anyone else having suffered corrupted filesystem due to powerfailure? the last year i have developed lots of automation in varius fields around in Norway, using Node-Red. some of the systems have suffered catastropic failure as result of corrupted filesystem. as consequence i developed a micro ups solution to handle short time power interuptions, and a safe shutdown if the power is out for longer periodes.im now at prototype V3, added some solidstate relays, optocouplers etc. let me know if there is any interest, ill fire up my solder iron and sort you out. :slight_smile:image

best regards

Is this an open-source project or Commercial?

This is certainly interesting.

Have you been in contact with Pete @scargill ? I know he has an interest in SBC UPS's. His blog has a few posts on the subject I seem to remember.

It would certainly be of interest to know more information.
