Compatible with Eaton 9PXM, 9170+, 9155 and 8-10 kVA 9PX UPS models, the Eaton Bypass Power Module (BPM) acts as both a maintenance bypass and a panelboard. Providing you with increased flexibility, the BPM lowers upfront and electrical costs while protecting against downtime during maintenance. While a centralized UPS can provide value over distributed designs, power distribution and reliability become more critical. Because they are hardwired, UPSs over 6 kVA almost always require a maintenance bypass to directly connect utility power to the IT equipment.
In the event of scheduled UPS maintenance, a service event or failure, the Eaton BPM maintenance bypass functionality helps keep critical loads running. In addition, it enables you to distribute power from the UPS to connected equipment.
