Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL UK Ltd has announced it will demonstrate its agility by showing its industry-leading, flexible UPS solutions at Data Centre World this year on booth D810.
Louis McGarry, sales and marketing director, CENTIEL confirms, “With real estate prices at a premium, plus the high costs of power consumption and the cost to maintain oversized UPS systems, the need to constantly right-size appropriate to the load has never been more important. For data centres looking to minimise running costs and maximise returns, an agile approach to system design is key. At DCW this year, we will demonstrate how to achieve a flexible approach through the use of true modular UPS systems.
“We will be showcasing a 600 kW CumulusPower UPS frame populated with our 4th generation, high-availability, high-efficiency, hot swappable 60 kW modules offering 540 N+1 in a single footprint. We will also demonstrate one of our most popular frames, which maximises availability, achieving 75kW N+1 within a single footprint of just 0.59 m2. With up to 320 battery blocks internally, this solution offers a great option for facilities with limited space.
“An innovative design also allows the larger CumulusPower UPS systems to be connected from either high or low level, without the requirement for a separate cable entry enclosure. This enables a more adaptable layout within comms rooms and data centres, accommodating the best use of space and potentially reducing installation costs too.”
CumulusPower is known for its “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability and low total cost of ownership through its Maximum Efficiency Management (MEM) and low losses of energy. CumulusPower has now been installed in data centres and comms rooms in over 60 countries across five continents. More than 50 MW of critical power loads are now protected with CumulusPower in locations across the world including: the UK, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic and the Channel Islands.
McGarry continues, “CumulusPower is both a scalable and flexible UPS system that combines class leading availability and efficiency that makes it perfect for use in small, medium and large data centres. However, not every application requires a modular UPS so we will also showcase PremiumTower, our standalone UPS ideally suited to applications where facilities don’t want to compromise on quality while minimizing total cost of ownership is a significant factor. With PremuimTower, the fans are located at the top of the UPS rather than the back, maximising the use of space: ‘zero clearance’.
“A flexible and agile approach is more important than ever when it comes to UPS design. True modular UPS systems can be easily right-sized allowing data centres to ‘pay-as-they grow’. In addition, ongoing running costs are minimized with a correctly sized system and initial CapEx is reduced too.
“At CENTIEL our design team has worked with data centres across the world for many years and we are at the forefront of technological development. We are the trusted advisors to some of the world’s leading institutions in this field. At DCW this year, our team and our UPS experts will be pleased to share their combined knowledge and discuss how to configure the most appropriate and resilient UPS system possible, to minimise both risk and budgets in order to protect the power to data centres and their valued client base.”
