Eaton announced that its BladeUPS system now is available in a preassembled system cabinet designed for easier power cabling access. The BladeUPS Top-Entry Preassembled System is designed to simplify installation for applications without a raised floor environment and serve as a flexible option when facing data center moves, additions or changes.
The BladeUPS Top-Entry Preassembled System is designed for data center managers interested in consolidating stand-alone Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPSs) in order to ease UPS management and enhance power capacity planning. Eaton recently worked with Allison-Smith Co., an electrical contracting firms, to specify a UPS for a customer with limited space in its information technology room.
“Not only did the small footprint of the BladeUPS Top-Entry Preassembled System work well within the space limitations, but because it is a fully integrated cabinet, we could easily install it at the end of our customer’s existing cabinet lineup,” says Kevin Dyer, project manager for Allison-Smith. “Many of our small-to-medium enterprise clients are moving toward the non-raised floor environments, and the Top-Entry BladeUPS system gives electricians the flexibility to feed cables overhead when configuration options are constrained.”
“Leading market analysts agree that more and more of today’s IT equipment is being deployed in non-raised floor applications,” says Chris Loeffler, product manager, Eaton Power Quality Division. “This trend will continue as higher cooling requirements outstrip the capability of the typical levels delivered in the raised floor setting. These new IT deployments require a scalable power solution that can integrate with a modular air management solution. BladeUPS delivers the highest efficiency with the ability to easily integrate.”
