Eaton, the intelligent power management company, has introduced its latest rack-mounted, three-phase online uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to the South Africa and East Africa markets.

The new Eaton 93PX 15-20 kVA UPS combines high efficiency with a compact footprint, lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and improved cybersecurity, all aimed at providing stable power for critical IT, industrial, manufacturing, and medical applications.

To achieve a fully operational solution, one power module and two battery packs, each occupying 3U of space is required. This brings the total space requirement for a comprehensive setup to 9U.

If you also include the Maintenance Bypass module, the total rack space utilised would be 12U.

Parallel operation is also possible to achieve redundancy or an expanded power rating.

For added flexibility, the UPS can be deployed as a rack-mounted or freestanding (tower) unit, with its large colour touchscreen automatically rotating thanks to a built-in gravity sensor.

By optimising  the use of Eaton technologies, such as the Energy Saver System (ESS), the 93PX boasts  the lowest TCO on the market. Thanks to its unity power factor, it can power more servers than UPS units with equivalent VA ratings but lower power factors.

This efficiency makes the Eaton 93PX UPS particularly cost-effective, leading to substantial savings in annual operating expenses due to reduced energy usage, power costs, and cooling expenses.

The intelligent power management software of the Eaton 93PX UPS is compatible with all major types of virtualisation software. With the integrated intellcan monitors and the  connection to the Eaton Brightlayer suite, users can  monitor, control and optimise their energy usage, addressing issues as they arise or even preventing them entirely.

Additionally, the Eaton UPS has been designed with harsh environments in mind, making it exceptionally robust and suitable for applications outside of communication rooms.

To address the need for greater cybersecurity, the Eaton 93PX UPS is  designed with security in mind and includes Cyber Secured Monitoring. This feature provides faster responses to malfunctions, delivers regular, comprehensive reports on UPS performance, including predictive analysis, and facilitates life-cycle management.
