  • Flexible DC bus – Optimizes battery sizing and supports a wide range of energy storage technologies, including VRLA, Li-ion, and NiCd batteries.
  • Built-in backfeed protection – Full built-in backfeed contactor ensures that no electricity is sent back to the grid.
  • Parallel-redundant capable – Power the connected equipment with multiple uninterruptible power supplies to increase system redundancy
  • Embedded Network Management Card – Allows you to remotely manage alert thresholds and monitor your UPS over EcoStruxure IT, Web, SNMP, or Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU.

Serviceability

Total Cost of Ownership

  • Wide input voltage range – Designed for harsh electrical environments to save battery life.
  • High efficiency in double conversion mode – Consistently high power quality at high efficiency, even at low load levels. Any disturbances on the distribution waveform are regenerated via the zero transfer time AC to DC then DC to AC conversion process. The battery is only used as a back-up source.
  • ECOnversion mode – Operating mode that ensures ultra high efficiency while charging the batteries, conditioning the load power factor and ensuring a Class 1 output voltage regulation.
  • Compact UPS – High-density technology and full front access make this UPS a footprint saver well suited for confined spaces.
  • Robust operation – No power derating in kW up to 40 degrees C or 104 degrees F.
  • Input power factor correction – Minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.
