The New Eaton 5130 UPS Solves Costly Power Problems For IT And Telecommunication Systems

Delhi … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the introduction of its Eaton 5130 UPS. Part of the Powerware® series, the 1250 to 3000 VA line-interactive models are specifically suited for protecting servers, routers, switches, workstations, as well as Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and EDGE/3G/WiMAX wireless networking equipment against costly power fluctuations and outages.

Designed to deliver clean, continuous power no matter the state of the incoming utility power, the 5130 is one of the most flexible UPSs on the market today offering the one of the best price per performance ratio. Available in slim 2U (3.50 inches) and 3U (5.25 inches) rack and tower configurations, the 5130’s compact size is ideal for dense rack enclosures. In addition, user-replaceable hot swappable batteries allow users to safely install new batteries without powering down the connected equipment or removing the UPS from the network rack. For applications requiring longer run times, slim 2U external battery modules can be quickly added to provide hours of backup time – especially important for telecommunications, Voice over IP (VoIP) and healthcare systems.

“The 5130 family delivers features one would normally find in more expensive systems,” said Deepak Sharma, general manager, Eaton Power Quality Pvt. Ltd, SAARC. “Customers will appreciate the UPSs’ comprehensive functionality including load segment control, multiple communication options, high output power factor and high power density all in a sleek affordable package. The 5130 is one of the most sophisticated line-interactive UPSs on the market today.”

The high-efficiency design allows the UPS to operate at 95 percent efficiency – reducing heat and expensive cooling costs. And, with a 0.9 power factor, the UPS delivers more wattage in less space to protect more equipment and leave more room to expand IT systems.

Additional features of the 5130 include:

• Intuitive power management software – Eaton’s LanSafe® provides control and visibility over all of the UPSs using an intuitive, graphical interface and SNMP. Remote control of operations, testing and network conditions are handled with ease.

• Communication options – Two built-in USB and RS-232 serial ports plus a slot to accommodate a communication card to support Web, SNMP, Modbus or serial communications.

• Load Segments – Independently control output receptacles to selectively shed loads during an outage, remotely reboot systems or manage sequential start-ups.

• Options – A host of options are available including extended battery modules, Web/SNMP cards, a hot-swap maintenance bypass switch, rackmount PDUs, and extended warranty plans.

The 5130 models are available now and come complete with a two-year warranty and an extended warranty, Flex and PowerTrust service contracts, and a $150,000 load protection guarantee.
