Eaton Intros Energy Saving UPS

PITTSBURGH -- Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced today the introduction of its new Pulsar M uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs). Responding to user's needs to maximize energy efficiency, the Pulsar M, sold under the MGE Office Protection Systems brand, features a high-efficiency design that saves energy and prevents excess heat when installed into a network rack.

The Pulsar M is the first on-line double-conversion UPS in its class with an adaptable, multi-position, hot-swappable Power Distribution Unit (FlexPDU). The FlexPDU provides an innovative, space saving method of easily adding receptacles to the back, side or top of the UPS freeing up much needed space in dense rack environments. In addition, optional universal HotSwap Maintenance By-Pass modules allow the UPS to be replaced, serviced or upgraded without interrupting the supply of power.

The 2200 and 3000 VA models feature multiple form factors to suit any need: Rack/Tower versatile with a choice of depth sizes to accommodate a variety of rack enclosures. At only 3.5” (2U) high for deep racks along with a 5.25” (3U) short depth unit to accommodate shallow telecom racks/enclosures, the Pulsar M's innovative slim design offers users system flexibility and increases the power density to allow for continual power for Information Technology (IT), telecommunications, healthcare and industrial systems.

"Energy efficiencies and power availability are key concerns in today's IT environment. Our new Pulsar M models give users the best of both worlds: high power availability while using an exceptionally efficient UPS design that minimizes heat – thus reducing equipment cooling costs,” said Hervé Tardy, vice president and general manager, Distributed Power Quality Business Unit of Eaton. "These important features together with flexible power distribution, hot-swappable battery modules and scalable run times give managers a full featured yet cost-effective power protection solution.”
