Historically, our US based standards have gone against the rest of the world.  Take the metric system and the US resistance to adapt to a system the rest of world uses. Sure we know a football field is measured in yards, engine power is measured in horsepower, air conditioners are measured in tonnage but, is our reluctance to adapt to a world-wide standard so valid to waste enormous amounts of money with outdated, poorly designed electrical distribution.  I will make the case for the 415/240 method of electrical distribution in the following white paper. The paper is designed to get those who design electrical distribution, specifically in the data center world, thinking “Can we do it better?”.

APC Smart-UPS On-Line Features and Benefits Overview

Posted by on February 6, 2012  |  No Comments

A versatile UPS developed for the harshest power conditions in the world.

Smart-UPS On-Line provides high density, true double-conversion on-line power protection for servers, voice / data networks, medical labs, and light industrial applications. Capable of supporting loads from 1 to 20kVA in a rack/tower convertible form, the Smart-UPS On-Line is available from 2U to 12U. Recent family extensions at 15 and 20kVA enable support of power hungry blade servers or heavily loaded equipment racks. When business-critical systems require runtime in hours, not minutes, Smart-UPS On-Line can be configured with matching battery packs to comply with aggressive runtime demands. The included PowerChute management software provides unattended graceful shutdown of network operating systems. All models 5kVA and above include an integrated Network Management Card for remote management (optional on models below 5 kVA). The entire Smart-UPS On-Line family provides value to customers with demanding power environments, including very wide input voltage window, extremely tight output voltage regulation, frequency regulation, internal bypass, and input power factor correction.

John Precopio gives a brief overview of Smart-UPS On-Line and it’s key features and benefits.
