CENTIEL Introduces Top & Bottom Cabling for Leading-edge UPS
Published: 4 December 2018 - Sarah Mead
Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has introduced a top and bottom cabling connection for its three-phase, modular UPS system, CumulusPower. The innovative new design now means the UPS can be connected from roof level, enabling a more flexible layout within comms rooms and data centres, maximising the use of space and potentially reducing installation costs.
Mike Elms, sales and marketing director, CENTIEL, explains: “CumulusPower is our leading 4th generation modular UPS system which enables “9 nines” system availability and very low total cost of ownership. Up until now, like most UPS systems, power was connected at low level into the UPS through under floor cabling contained in a false floor. There really has been no alternative. Now, the flexible, modular configuration of CumulusPower means we are able to include an input terminal to accept cables from above via steel wire armoured (SWA).
“Our focus is to work with our clients to provide the very best UPS solutions which are most applicable for their needs. This simple but highly convenient addition is another example of CENTIEL leading the field in UPS design for benefit of our valued customer base, ensuring ensure their power is fully protected at all time, now and in the future.”
Now available with top and bottom entry, CumulusPower technology combines a unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), with a fault-tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA), to offer industry leading availability of 99.9999999%. This excellence in system availability is achieved through fully independent and self-isolating intelligent modules - each with individual power units, intelligence (CPU and communication logic), static bypass, control, display and battery. The solution has been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses: the high double conversion efficiency of 97% at the module level means it is currently the best solution available to protect data centre infrastructure as its configuration also reduces downtime risk, avoiding costly errors as well as increasing energy efficiency.
