Switzerland’s Centiel is to demonstrate its CumulusPower UPS in the UK for the first time at an expo in London next month.
The group’s namesake UK subsidiary said the three-phase modular system— which “offers class leading ‘9 nines’ system availability and very low total cost of ownership”— will be on show at Data Centre World.
Centiel will also be showcasing its PremiumTower three-phase standalone UPS for critical loads of between 10kW and 60kW. PremiumTower offers “very similar reliability and efficiency performance as CumulusPower in a stand-alone, parallel version”, the company said.
Michael Brooks, MD of Centiel Ltd., said: “Availability continues to be the major concern for datacentre managers and those working in other environments requiring clean, continuous power.”
Brooks said: “Unlike traditional multi-module systems, the CumulusPower technology combines a unique intelligent module technology with a fault-tolerant parallel distributed active redundant architecture (DARA), to offer industry leading availability of 99.9999999%.”
According to Brooks, 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”.
“In the unlikely event of a module failure, the module can be quickly and safely swapped without transferring the load to raw mains,” Brooks said. “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 datacentre infrastructure as its configuration also reduces downtime risk, avoiding costly errors as well as increasing energy efficiency”.
