Eaton Introduces Powerware 9395 825 kVA UPS To Meet Large Data Center Needs
RALEIGH, N.C. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced a new and extended power rating for its industry-leading Powerware 9395 uninterruptible power system (UPS). The new 825 kVA offering will be unveiled during the Gartner Information Technology (IT) Infrastructure, Operations and Management Summit in Orlando, Fla.
The Powerware 9395 825 kVA UPS follows the innovative capabilities introduced to the market with the highly successful 2007 launch of the 275 and 550 kVA systems. The Powerware 9395 offers unmatched power performance with greater than 94 percent efficiency across a wide load range while providing simple and cost-saving scalability. The 9395 UPS has been widely adopted in organizations around the world as varied as financial institutions, telecom companies, research and medical facilities and manufacturing sites where data processing, storage and power protection are critical to business continuity.
“With the information and data explosion associated with online transactions, Internet applications and overall data center growth, our customers are asking for more powerful UPS systems to support their critical business processes,” said Jim Davis, three-phase UPS business unit manager, Eaton Power Quality Division. “With the introduction of our 825 kVA model, the Powerware 9395 meets today’s need for more powerful UPSs but also allows our customers to efficiently power their data centers regardless of actual load levels.”
The Powerware 9395 features a scalable architecture that is easily adaptable to changing power requirements. In today’s environment where data center growth can be unpredictable, the 9395 is designed to be field upgradeable by adding additional modules to achieve N+1 redundancy or to provide additional capacity. The Powerware 9395 provides this scalability through its patented Hot Sync® technology that has been deployed in Powerware UPS systems for over 20 years.
“This ‘wireless paralleling’ technology enables each UPS to operate autonomously without the need for centralized controllers or complicated, failure-prone control wiring,” added Davis. “In the 9395 offering, the Hot Sync technology has been enhanced to allow UPSs with different power ratings to be paralleled together, providing even more flexibility in data center applications.”
The Powerware 9395 825 kVA takes the 9395 sustainable values into higher power ranges. In addition to the operating savings of higher efficiency, its transformerless design results in lower weight and footprint with corresponding space and transportation savings. Furthermore, the EZ Capacity Test allows for full system testing without the expense and energy cost of using external loads or load banks.
The Powerware 9395 825 kVA UPS is available for shipment in July 2008. For additional information on the Powerware 9395, visit www.powerware.com/9395. To learn more about Eaton’s complete line of Powerware products and service portfolio, visit our Web site at www.eaton.com/powerware.
