Rack-mounted, three-phase online UPS

Issue 6 2023 Security Services & Risk Management, Infrastructure, Products & Solutions

Eaton is introducing its latest rack-mounted, three-phase online uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to the South African and East African markets. The new Eaton 93PX 15-20 kVA UPS combines high efficiency with a compact footprint, lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and improved cybersecurity, all aimed at providing stable power for critical IT, industrial, manufacturing, and medical applications.

One power module and two battery packs, each occupying 3U of space, are required to achieve a fully operational solution. This brings the total space requirement for a comprehensive setup to 9U. Including the Maintenance Bypass module, the total rack space utilised would be 12U. Parallel operation is also possible to achieve redundancy or an expanded power rating. For added flexibility, the UPS can be deployed as a rack-mounted or freestanding (tower) unit, with its large colour touchscreen automatically rotating thanks to a built-in gravity sensor.

According to the company, by optimising the use of Eaton technologies, such as the Energy Saver System (ESS), the 93PX boasts the lowest TCO on the market. Thanks to its unity power factor, it can power more servers than UPS units with equivalent VA ratings, but lower power factors. This efficiency makes the Eaton 93PX UPS cost-effective, leading to substantial savings in annual operating expenses due to reduced energy usage, power, and cooling expenses.

The intelligent power management software of the Eaton 93PX UPS is compatible with all major types of virtualisation software. With the integrated intelligent features and the connection to the Eaton Brightlayer suite, users can monitor, control and optimise their energy usage, addressing issues as they arise or even preventing them entirely. The Eaton UPS has also been designed with harsh environments in mind, making it exceptionally robust and suitable for applications outside of communication rooms.

To address the need for greater cybersecurity, the Eaton 93PX UPS is designed with security in mind and includes Cyber Secured Monitoring. This feature provides faster responses to malfunctions, delivers regular, comprehensive reports on UPS performance, including predictive analysis, and facilitates life-cycle management.
