Features & Benefits

Shipped with modules installed: Enables pre-installation UPS staging and testing and faster installation.

Removable input/output wiring tray: Allows quick and easy installation and maintenance of the UPS.

Configurable for N+1 internal redundancy: Provides high availability through redundancy by allowing configuration with one more Power Module than is necessary to support the connected load.
Redundant Intelligence Modules: Provides higher availability to the UPS connected loads by giving redundant communication paths to critical UPS functions.
Power Modules connected in parallel: Enhances availability by allowing immediate, seamless recovery from isolated module failures.
Battery modules connected in parallel: Delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.
Hot-swappable power modules: Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Power Module replacement.
Hot-swappable intelligence modules: Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Intelligence Module replacement.
Hot-swappable batteries: Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced
Modular design: Provides fast serviceability and reduced maintenance requirements via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules.
Automatic internal bypass: Supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS overload condition or fault.
Automatic restart of Loads: Automatically starts up the connected equipment upon the return of utility power after UPS shutdown.

Scalable power capacity: Reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick upgrades later.
Scalable runtime: Allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
Plug-and-Play external batteries: Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to the loads when adding extra runtime to the UPS.
Programmable frequency: Ensures compatibility with different input frequencies.
Field-replaceable power distribution panel: Ensures compatibility with equipment that has different plug types.
