How to Balance UPS Size and Features, Reliability

A smaller UPS form factor does not have to mean compromising on premium features and reliability.

In small data centers, edge facilities and co-location data center environments, space is at a premium and maintaining uninterrupted power and uptime is critical to a company’s bottom line. Most often, IT managers need high-capacity UPS systems with smaller footprints, but they shouldn’t have to compromise on premium features and UPS reliability.

The new S3M 3-Phase UPS Systems from Tripp Lite offer the smallest footprint in the 208V three-phase market, saving space for revenue-generating equipment and allowing IT specialists to install them in spaces that would otherwise require expensive retrofitting.

Take a closer look at the most common environments where your customers could benefit from a new, smaller, more efficient three-phase UPS system.

Top 5 Most Common Environments Where IT Infrastructure Space Is at a Premium:

  1. Education facilities

  2. Financial institutions

  3. Government facilities

  4. Healthcare environments

  5. Edge-of-network installations

 Top 5 Ways the New S3M 3-Phase UPS Series Can Make You a Rockstar to your Customers

  1. Best-in-class footprint for easy integration into network applications.
    By achieving its compact size without compromising runtime, reliability or functionality, these UPS systems are recommended for data centers, co-location facilities and edge computing environments that require high efficiency, high performance and clean, reliable power protection, while preserving as much space as possible for revenue-generating server racks.

  2. Efficient operation and design reduce cost of ownership.
    ENERGY STAR 2.0-certified technology provides high operational efficiency to save on utility and cooling costs, as well as protect the environment. These UPS systems achieve 94% efficiency in double-conversion mode and up to 98% in ECO mode, reducing power and cooling costs. Unity output power factor (1.0) lets your customers support more connected equipment. A low THDi (<2%) improves generator compatibility. A low THDv (≤2%) and active power factor correction with DSP control improve output performance. The hardware and firmware platform design reduces the number of unique boards, improving mean time to repair (MTTR) and resulting in reduced downtime. Maintenance bypass operation transfers UPS loads to utility power during faults, overloads and maintenance, which avoids costly system downtime.

  3. Intuitive LCD interface delivers important performance information at a glance.
    The large five-inch touchscreen LCD panel displays critical operating conditions and diagnostic data, including battery and load status. Four LEDs provide information about AC, bypass, battery and fault status.

  4. Remote network monitoring and control are available 24 hours a day.
    The optional Java-free WEBCARDLXMINI network management card (sold separately) enables remote management through embedded HTML5 web, SSH/telnet and SNMP interfaces, as well as integration with a wide range of network management systems and DCIM platforms. WEBCARDLXMINI also supports EnviroSense2 (sold separately), which monitors temperature, humidity and other environmental factors. Three integrated MODBUS ports (RS-485, USB, RS-232) may also be used to monitor and manage the UPS. A front panel Emergency Power Off (EPO) button or Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) port enables local or remote shutdown from a safe distance during emergencies.

  5. Battery backup and VFI operation protect critical loads.
    S3M 3-Phase UPS Systems support the continuous availability of your customer’s most important operational and IT equipment loads through all power conditions, providing a compact backup power platform that’s easy to manage and inexpensive to operate. Sophisticated voltage- and frequency-independent (VFI) operation and advanced IGBT rectifier technology with DSP control deliver reliable output power quality.

If your customers are looking for efficient, three-phase UPS battery backup but have limited data center space, here are some great solutions to offer. All S3M UPS models, starting with the 10kVA, include the same advanced features that you would normally expect from a premium 100K 3-phase UPS model, which presents a great opportunity to increase your sales!
