The performance of your power supply is crucial to your operations. We help you meet this challenge head-on.
The Galaxy VX UPS Power Protection solution for large to Hyperscale Data Centres contains an ultra-efficient ECOnversion energy saving system and is powered by innovative Lithium-Ion batteries; meaning customers need no longer trade-off between efficiency and reliability.
In this article, Alan Luscombe, Director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., a Kohler company, discusses the factors to be considered when adding a generator to a UPS system. These range from designing in electrical compatibility to addressing environmental and physical constraints.
To provide protection from various threat calls, amongst other things, static switches respond quickly to the different demands they are subjected to. In this article, Alan Luscombe, Director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., a Kohler company, explores the role of static switches and their contribution to UPS protection.
While UPS installations exist to protect their critical load from power problems, they equally must be protected from factors that could harm them – even if this is difficult to achieve due to a lack of trained staff or resources. In this article, Alan Luscombe, Director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., a Kohler company, shows how an effective protection strategy, comprising both remote system monitoring and on-site maintenance, and tailored to the needs of a particular installation, can be arranged with a suitable UPS supplier.
In this article Alan Luscombe, Director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., a Kohler company, looks at the key factors for this critical UPS characteristic – parallel redundancy, decentralised parallel architecture (DPA), and hot swap capability.
Alan Luscombe, a director at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., a Kohler company, explains how system variants impact performance and protection and what to look for from a supplier.
Now would be a good time to plan a UPS maintenance visit if you haven’t already done so. The moment when the mains power fails isn’t the best time to discover your UPS battery capacity isn’t what you thought it was.
Mike Elms, technical manager at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd., describes how modern, modular UPS topology can assist data centre managers and owners in meeting these challenges
From IBM 7090 mainframes to the SuperNAP, the history of data centres
An in-depth review of tier classifications supported by facts, figures and a body of extensive research. Designed to help data centre owners and operators understand the necessary requirements of each tier, and the factors that govern the different levels of classification.
The data centre industry understands that PUE is not perfect. However, it does provide a simple and practical matrix for measuring relative efficiency of power use inside the data centre.
Batteries are fundamental to the backup resource that a UPS provides, yet they should also be considered as one of its weakest links.
UPSs can always be provided with sufficient battery autonomy to allow a safe system shutdown if the mains power fails. However, battery autonomies are ultimately always finite, therefore batteries alone are insufficient for systems that must remain up and running through power blackouts of extended and unknown duration. In such situations, the batteries must be complemented by a standby generator that can offer power availability for an indefinite period of time.
Since the financial crisis, capital for new projects has become much harder to obtain. Businesses are instead starting to use a modular, scalable approach to their data centre requirements; starting from a minimal size and growing incrementally in pace with the demand for capacity.
How UPS providers can respond to the challenge of increased power demands while maintaining the availability and energy efficiency standards enjoyed by lower power installations.
RBS recently identified a requirement for a new, highly resilient UPS system to support trading operations within a key central London office.
Schneider Electric’s Galaxy 300 Uninterruptible Power Supply Offers Efficiency, Reliable Protection to Small and Medium Organisations
Using standard double conversion inline UPS systems is standard practice for large mission-critical applications such as data centres, but innovative economy-mode technologies allow savings in energy and improvements in system reliability while guaranteeing backup power in emergencies
Schneider Electric introduces EcoBlade, a smart & scalable energy storage system for all customers needsPress Release
EcoBlade unleashes the full potential of renewable energies thanks to Schneider Electric’s unrivaled experience in critical power & energy management.
Power Control Ltd contracted to supply Glasgow Super College with 10 high efficiency UPS systems.
SMARTset is helping to change the way in which DC managers understand their infrastructure.
The tool calculates Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), energy cost, annual carbon emissions and the economiser mode hours for a variety of cooling architectures.
PUE is a useful tool for measuring and monitoring a data centre's efficient use of power but care must be taken when comparing figures across multiple facilities.
PCL deliver UPS within 48 hours of order to TClarke
Proper maintenance of a UPS system to guarantee its durability is not difficult but requires some simple procedures to be performed regularly.
The primary function of a UPS system is to guarantee the power supply to its load in the event of a loss or interruption to mains power. All other considerations are secondary.
