AEG Power Solutions’ new PROTECT Blue range is to provide a high efficiency UPS solution for data centre and IT applications. This new range is based on a modular 250kVA power block architecture UPS, which offers flexible UPS systems up to 1250kVA. Paralleling of UPS enables solutions of up to 4MW to be provided.

To ensure the continuity of essential IT services and reduce the risk of costly and damaging downtime caused by power outages, the PROTECT Blue modular UPS family from AEG Power Solutions provides next-generation 3-phase power protection for all data centre and mission critical applications. The new UPS range provides an eco-friendly power solution with low total cost of ownership and low carbon impact.

Designed and built for maximum flexibility, efficiency and availability, the new UPS is engineered around AEG Power Solutions’ unique, 250kW building blocks. Up to 16 units can be connected in parallel to support the redundancy requirements of larger critical loads.

In addition to providing a solution which can be scaled up as requirements grow, PROTECT Blue is 95% efficient at only 20% load. The new UPS also provides 99% efficiency when being operated in Eco Mode.

“PROTECT Blue has been developed by AEG PS specifically to fulfil the need for high efficiency, high reliability power protection devices for today’s data centre and computer room requirements. PROTECT Blue is a high performance, compact and competitively priced power protection solution,” said Iain Campbell, Business Development Director – UK & Ireland, AEG Power Solutions.

The new UPS features 3-level IGBT technology to reduce switching losses, and together with VFI topology and a transformerless design, provides a smaller, lighter and more efficient UPS implementation.

Other advantages include an optimal input power factor, low THDi, reduced capital and operating costs, lower audible noise and enhanced battery life. PROTECT Blue is designed to be compatible with renewable and alternative energy storage and sources as well as tomorrow’s SMART Grid and Micro Grid technology.

Local control is via a large, easy to use touch-screen which conveniently displays available battery status and runtime. 3 front panel LEDs are provided to indicate UPS status and a convenient audible alarm sounds if a fault should occur.
