Eaton Adds Versatile Three-Phase Models to High-Efficiency 9PX UPS Range

Available throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the new models are an ideal choice for IT and industrial applications where a three-phase power source is conveniently available and outstanding energy efficiency is a prime requirement.
The new three-phase in, single-phase out (3:1) models in the 9PX range are offered with power ratings of 6, 8 and 11 kVA, with all versions incorporating a maintenance bypass for easy replacement of the UPS without powering down critical systems. They complement the existing 9PX single-phase (1:1) models, which are available with ratings from 5 kVA to 11 kVA.
A key feature of all UPSs in Eaton’s 9PX range is the market-leading energy efficiency, enabling users to reduce energy usage and cost. When operating in double conversion mode, the UPSs achieve an efficiency of up to 95 percent and, when mains power quality is good, this increases to 98 percent in high-efficiency mode. A high output power factor of 0.9 is another characteristic of the units, and this allows them to deliver up to 28 percent more useful power than many competitive products with an apparently similar rating.
“The new three-phase models are important additions to this very popular family of UPSs, since they bring the decisive benefits offered by our 9PX products to an even wider range of applications,” said Christophe Jammes, product manager, Eaton’s Power Quality division. “The single-phase models we launched at the end of last year are already proving extremely popular and I have no doubt that the new three-phase models will be received with equal enthusiasm.”
To make them easy to manage, 9PX UPSs feature a large graphical LCD screen that provides real-time information about operating status and offers easy access to analytics and configuration capabilities. The units also incorporate a sophisticated control system that, in double conversion mode, continually monitors power conditions and regulates the operation of the UPS for optimised capacity management.
Remote monitoring options are provided by Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager Software, which is supplied as standard with every 9PX UPS. Compatible with all major operating systems and virtualisation software, this allows the UPSs to be integrated easily with virtualised IT environments, such as VMware vCenter, Microsoft HyperV, Citrix XEN and Red Hat KVM.
All 9PX UPSs feature space-saving compact construction, with the new units having a 6U form factor. All models are suitable for freestanding use in tower orientation, or for rack mounting with an optional mounting kit.
