Eaton Expands 5P UPS Product Line to Provide Highly Efficient Protection for Any IT Environment
RALEIGH, N.C. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today announced it has expanded its 5P uninterruptible power system (UPS) product line in North America to include space-saving tower, 1U and 2U rackmount form factors. The new configurations complement Eaton’s existing 5P portfolio and help information technology (IT) professionals optimize energy performance in network closet and server room applications through industry leading electrical efficiency up to 99 percent and ENERGY STAR® qualification of select models.
Through an intuitive, graphical display located on the front of all 5P models, users are provided with detailed energy usage information and the ability to customize UPS settings at the push of a button. By utilizing the display and seamless integration with Eaton’s power management software, customers are provided with insight into UPS operating status and power system conditions. The new 5P configurations can also provide up to 20 percent more power than traditional UPSs to offer a solution for the protection of high-density IT environments.
“With the addition of the new 5P series models, Eaton sets a new standard for UPS versatility and flexibility to help customers enhance business continuity in server room and network closet applications,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Eaton’s Distributed Power Quality Division. “By combining intuitive energy management features, robust power management software and unmatched power density, the 5P series delivers great value in a compact footprint.”
The 5P models are designed to integrate seamlessly with Eaton’s virtualization-ready Intelligent Power™ Software Suite, an innovative pairing of power management and protection software. By integrating the software suite with the 5P, users can manage their entire power infrastructure remotely and directly through leading virtualization management platforms, including VMware® vCenter Server™, Citrix® XenServer, Microsoft SCVMM™, Red Hat® and other Xen® open source platforms. The integration enables automatic and transparent live migration of virtual machines (VMs) during power disruptions to unaffected devices, and also provides a graceful shutdown of computers, VMs and servers during an extended power outage.
The new Eaton 5P tower and rackmount models range from 550 VA (420 W) to 3,000 VA (2,700 W). All models feature Eaton’s ABM® technology, which is designed to increase battery service life by 50 percent, and are backed by a three-year warranty, including batteries.
