Solution for data centre protection

July 26th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

ABB’s highly innovative UPS-I is proving to be an ideal solution for data centre protection due to its high efficiency, reliability and small physical footprint. These benefits have lead to the UPS-I being selected as the power protection solution for a major Swiss government data centre. Government data centres manage all sorts of critical data, and any power supply disruption is particularly harmful. Rows of servers storing unimaginable amount of information operate around the clock. The prospect of a system shutdown or even potential loss of classified data due to unexpected voltage sags or electricity outages is unacceptable. The data centre had been protected by rotary UPS systems but these were unreliable and had dropped the load. ABB’s PCS100 UPS-I was identified as an ideal solution to be retrofitted into the data centre to enhance system reliability. The very high electrical efficiency of the UPS and small footprint were of particular importance. Efficiency and space are always important considerations but restricted space and cooling meant they were essential features. Four UPS-I systems with a capacity of 1800 kW/2000 kVA were selected and ordered.
