When you are working with medium to large-scale electronic equipment, such as in a data center or computer closet, it isn’t the best idea to place your devices on the floor or under the desk where they could be damaged. In such situations, it is best to use a rackmount form factor — devices that are designed to be placed in a rack of a specific size. This protects hardware, encourages proper cooling, and helps you stay more organized. Rackmount cabinets support various devices, such as computer servers, test instruments, and routers. At Westward Sales, we offer rackmount UPS models designed for industrial environments that fit perfectly into 19” racks or server cabinets.
Rackmount Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) fit into standard 19” racks and enclosures and offer convenient front panel access. They provide continuous backup power and protection for PLCs, computers, network switches, and other essential equipment that require constant uptime. Rackmount solutions, such as our rackmount UPS models, offer double-conversion (true online) sinusoidal power output and protection from input power transients. Long life, low maintenance, and low lifetime costs make these units a great value. Although the initial cost may be higher than other UPS products, the total long-term cost is far less owing to their durability and reliability alone.
A double-conversion online rackmount UPS model uses a delta conversion technology. Instead of receiving electricity directly from the AC outlet, an online UPS uses a rectifier and inverter. This allows for a computing system to receive clean power continuously and decreases risks that could arise from a volatile power source. Compared to line-interactive and offline UPS infrastructure, the online rackmount UPS model simultaneously provides power to the load and the battery backup, ensuring constant power supply. In contrast to standby and line-interactive styles that connect their loads directly to utility power with little or no surge protection, the clean power conversion using a rectifier and inverter enables an online rackmount UPS Model to remove line noise, frequency variations, or harmonic distortion. This, combined with the ability to fit into your bigger rackmount solution, makes our rackmount UPS models a great way to save on maintenance costs and potential revenue loss.
Online industrial UPS systems, such as the SSG and SSG-RP rackmount families from Falcon Electric, are built to withstand industrial locations and extreme temperatures. Not only do Falcon’s rackmount UPS solutions endure these environments, but they also have a service life of up to 12 years, making them an incredible value. The real cost of ownership is far less than other lower-cost products on the market. Ten and twelve-year-rated batteries save maintenance costs by eliminating costly and frequent replacements.
For example, the SSG1KRP from Falcon Electric is one of the toughest in the market, leading the way in offering power protection for critical equipment. This UPS rackmount solution offers 12-year-rated, maintenance-free, sealed VRLA batteries. Notably, this battery life stands true when the device is kept at room temperature. Tower models are available as well.
When choosing a UPS, consider the level of protection. Rackmount solutions, such as the rackmount UPS models, are a great way to not only back up equipment and data but also ensure that your equipment suite can be placed together for easy access and maintenance. Westward Sales offers different rackmount solutions. Contact our team of experts to find out which UPS is best suited for your project
