Delta's 500 KVA UPS launches 55.6kVA per 3U module
Big density for big data The new high-density UPS from Delta launches at a time when annual global IP traffic is expected to nearly triple over the next five years. Developments like increase of content-heavy applications such as bandwidth-intensive video, Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data are behind these dramatic increases in traffic and the corresponding demand for greater datacenter capacity. The industry-leading power density of 55.6kVA per 3U module achieved by Delta's new 500kVA Modulon DPH model gives datacenter operators greater flexibility to adapt to these rapidly changing requirements.
<p>This high density makes oversizing–one of the major drivers of excess datacenter cost–avoidable right from design phase. Adding capacity later is simple and economical, in contrast with traditional monoblock UPS systemst The high power density also means less space is consumed by power infrastructure, leaving more room for revenue-generating IT racks. </p>
<p> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Performance, availability and efficiency</span><br />
Highlights of the fault-tolerant design of the device include power module redundancy and a dual CAN bus, onboard control logic and self-synchronisation. Critical components are hot swappable. Parallel expansion and N+X redundancy with up to 8 units are possible, and the hot-swappable architecture offers a 50% faster service time than required compared to traditional UPS systems. Together, these features make the DPH series appropriate for high-availability applications such as Tier IV datacenters. The latest UPS from Delta is also an ecological choice, with AC-AC conversion efficiency of up to 96.5% in normal operation and 99% in ECO mode. </p>

The latest DPH model also comes equipped with a touch screen, an environment management system, and a battery management system. The console's large 10ö color touch screen allows operators to view event logs and access diagnostic information. <span style="font-weight: bold;"> Dr Charles Tsai, General Manager of Mission Critical Infrastructure Solutions (MCIS) Business Unit at Delta Electronics,</span> said, 'Our latest DPH series UPS was well-received by a global audience at this year's CeBIT in Hannover, Germany. This DPH series 75- 200kVA UPS is already powering airport datacenters in Poland and South Korea. A hosting provider in Berlin and bank branches in Poland and India have also purchased DPH 200kVA systems.' Tsai continued, 'With this UPS solution, Delta's MCIS BU is confident the Modulon DPH series is the best choice to provide backup power for modern datacenters in this dynamic era of big data.'</p>
