Vertiv UPS have efficiency over 96%

UPS systems provide clean power to electronic devices such as computer networks and servers, building management and security systems. UPS also protect against power outages which could potentially lead to a halt in operations, a loss of information, productivity and profit for businesses. The energy efficiency of a UPS is the ratio between the power entering the UPS and the power exiting the UPS to supply the load. Whenever current passes through the internal components of a UPS, a certain amount of energy is dissipated as heat, which results in energy losses. Additional energy is also consumed when air conditioning systems operate to sustain the ideal environmental temperature of the installation. Whilst a certain amount of energy loss is inevitable, it is evident that the reduction of UPS power consumption and the consequent increase of its efficiency will significantly contribute to lowering excess energy waste, maximizing the overall running cost-saving of the energy bill.

The savings generated by increased UPS efficiency extrapolated over 24 hours a day, 365 days a year over a five-year period, would not only exceed the purchase price of a UPS but also actively contribute to reducing CO2 and other global warming emissions, ensuring the lowest environmental impact of the chosen power protection solution.

Vertiv UPS Can Work On Eco Mode, With Efficiency Upto 99%

Electronic devices should be able to operate normally under the condition shown in the curve. The steady-state range describes an RMS voltage which is either varying very slowly or is constant. The subject range is +/- 10% from the nominal voltage. Any voltages in this range may be present for an indefinite period, and are a function of normal loadings and losses in the distribution system. Electronic devices should also be able to operate temporarily without voltage for no longer than 20 ms. As these types of electronic equipment do not need perfect power quality, ECO Mode takes advantage of the grid when there is good power quality by transferring the UPS to bypass and supplying the load directly through the grid via the bypass line.

When input power quality is inside tolerances, the UPS the Static Bypass Switch instead of the power conversion section of the UPS where energy losses are higher. Advanced Control Techniques and Power Tracking permit a UPS to transfer to double conversion mode as soon as there is an out of tolerance or mains failure.
