Product description

Eaton BladeUPS 12-60kVA

Designed specifically for high-density computing environments, the Eaton BladeUPS delivers 5, 8 or 12 kW of efficient, reliable power in only 6U of standard rack space, including batteries. Expand capacity by combining 12 kW modules in a building block fashion to deliver 60 kW (N+1) from a single rack enclosure. This powerful configuration delivers higher power density than competitive, modular solutions, while dissipating only one-third of the heat.

The standard internal batteries provide needed ridethrough power until an auxiliary power source takes over or systems are gracefully shut down. Extend runtime up to 94 minutes at full load* (or 250 minutes at half load) with extended battery modules (EBMs).

Reduce energy costs with high efficiency

As utility rates continue to climb, energy efficiency becomes a sticking point with data center managers. The BladeUPS delivers an outstanding, industry-leading 98 percent efficiency in normal operation. Even at a load of less than 50 percent, where efficiency is typically much lower, this UPS performs more efficiently than competitors’ modular products at full load.

In addition to dramatic cost savings, high system efficiency extends battery runtimes and produces cooler operating conditions within the UPS. This extends the life of components and increases the life of components and increasing overall reliability and performance. Even small increases in efficiency can quickly translate into thousands of dollars. The example below compares annual and five-year energy costs for the BladeUPS and a competitor’s solution. It’s easy to see that the BladeUPS pays for itself through energy and cooling savings alone.

Meet current and changing requirements with modular architecture

The building block of the scalable BladeUPS system is a 6U rackmount module that provides 12 kW of backup power protection. The system expands easily to provide maximum results. As your data center grows, the system’s modularity plays a key role in optimizing your capital planning and deployment. Using the patented and field-proven Powerware Hot Sync paralleling technology, up to six BladeUPS modules can be paralleled for extra capacity or redundancy, providing 60 kW of redundant backup power protection in one 19-inch rack.

Patented load-sharing control intelligently distributes the workload among modules without requiring direct synchronization links among them. Any module can provide backup support for any other, with no interruption or downtime. For instance, in a redundant system you could perform full maintenance on any module without any
interruption of conditioned power to the protected IT equipment.

Easy setup with simple parallel configuration changes The BladeUPS is easy to install, configure, and deploy—and easy to expand later, without help from Eaton. To link multiple BladeUPS modules into a parallel configuration, all you need is a BladeUPS Parallel Bar—a simple kit installed in the top or bottom of the rack and on the back rail. IT personnel can then simply plug additional modules into the parallel bus bar.

The system is intelligent, so it automatically detects paralleled modules and fully configures itself for parallel operations. Eaton also offers an assortment of plug-and-play power distribution accessories with various input and output connections to distribute power from the BladeUPS to rack power strips or directly to highpower servers. You can choose from distribution designs with or without monitoring capability for redundant or non-redundant applications spanning from 0U to full rack height.

Double Conversion Online UPS

Double Conversion Technology

Double Conversion Topology

The Eaton BladeUPS uninterruptible power supply uses the Double Conversion Online UPS topology.  This  provides the ultimate in clean and stable electrical power for critical applications.  Incoming AC power is fed to the UPS’ rectifier converting it from AC to DC power. The converted DC power routes to a battery charging circuit and to the inverter for conversion back to AC power. The resulting “double converted” electrical power is pure sine wave output providing near perfect electrical power for connected equipment.

To ensure 7/24 up time the double conversion UPS topology utilizes a static “bypass switch” within its circuity design. If the BladeUPS detects a system failure, audible alarms will sound as the bypass switch is engages. This routes power around the failed UPS and ensures critical load power to target equipment.  This very important feature allows for 100% up time for critical equipment during repair.

In the event of total power failure, the UPS will power off the rectifier when the loss of power is detected. The UPS’ internal backup batteries will continue to supply DC power to the inverter. There is no transfer time as the transition to battery power is instantaneous. This feature provides true uninterruptible power to mission critical equipment.
