9SX Tower UPS models from Eaton
Eaton, the power management solutions company, has revealed the 9SX Tower uninterruptible power supply (UPS) portfolio. Its advanced protection for IT has now been released in Australia and New Zealand.
Offering flexibility for small data infrastructure and other applications, the new model extends the existing badged UPS to the online double conversion UPS models over a power range from 700VA to 6kVA.
The 9SX Tower series is the progression from Eaton’s 9130 Tower UPS range. Building on the older features, the new features of the 9SX include energy metering to track energy consumption, by monitoring kWh values, at the UPS level, improved LCD display, display information on recommended battery replacement dates an automatic Extended Battery Module (EBM) recognition.
Eaton ANZ national channel manager Gavin Swadling says, “Our 9SX Tower range expands upon the top features of the 9130 Tower range to deliver a product that caters to the unique landscape of ANZ’s modern-day IT and data centre infrastructure. With the 9SX Tower, our customers now have access to an enhanced suite of options that allows them to stay ahead in Australia and New Zealand’s growing technology landscape.”
The 9SX Tower has a power factor of 0.9, meaning it provides greater real power (watts) to ensure more protection of equipment. It uses double conversion technology to monitor power (voltage and frequency) conditions and initiate automatic bypass in case of an overload or UPS failure.
When teamed with Power Manager software, monitoring and management of the 9SX Tower can be done in virtual-management platforms, such as VMware vCenter and Microsoft Hyper-V. This allows IT professionals to configure policy-based automation for power events, such as automated disaster recovery policies, controlled shut down, load shedding and cloud orchestrator integration.
