Range of modular UPS extended

September 27th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Newave, a member of the ABB Group, recently launched a new type of modular uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system for use in data centres to fulfill power requirements from 100 kW up to 3 MW. The Conceptpower DPA 500 UPS system provides maximum availability for data centres targeting zero downtime and low cost of ownership, while its modular, parallel architecture delivers a reliable product that is easy to maintain. Its basic element is a 100 kW slide-in module. Five of these modules can be installed in a single frame, and six frames can be configured in parallel – giving a maximum rating of 3 MW, thereby providing a modular UPS that can easily scale up to provide 3 MW of reliable power. UPS modules can be added to the system as power requirements grow, thus avoiding the need to overspecify the original configuration. Because the modules can be inserted and removed with the power on and without the need to transfer the load to raw mains supply (“online-swap”), routine maintenance is simple and related downtime is avoided.
