Power distribution specialist Eaton has improved the utility of its popular 93PM uninterruptible power supply by considerably extending its power range.

The older models would max out at just 200kVA while the new hardware can support a load between 30 and 500kVA.

The extended 93PM range will be available in EMEA from July 2017.

93PM is a three-phase UPS with efficiency levels of up to 97 percent in double-conversion mode. It features Eaton’s Advanced Battery Management to increase battery life, and a patented feature called Hot Sync, which enables load sharing between UPS units.

Eaton said that today’s data center customers require more power rating options and a modular approach to data center power management, and that’s exactly what the new 93PM units deliver. They enable data center operators to increase their UPS capacity gradually, by adding 50kVA power modules to the existing system, up to the limit of 500kVA.

“There are two clear drivers in data center and power technology – total cost of ownership and highest possible availability,” said Teppo Henttonen, marketing manager for Critical Power Solutions at Eaton.

“As customers look to increase system efficiency and reduce energy costs, being able to increase power capacity incrementally is important in enabling this. Resiliency will remain the focus of Eaton’s UPS design, but we want also to enable smarter management of mission critical applications.”
