CENTIEL Launches Single Phase UPS: EssentialPower


Swiss UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL, has announced the extension of its UPS range with the launch of a single-phase UPS: EssentialPower. Aimed at small commercial clients, EssentialPower now provides single-phase, online double-conversion power protection for IT rooms, servers, voice and data networks and comms rooms in sectors such as retail, security and medical and is suitable for any office environment or light industrial application.

Gerardo Lecuona, Co-founder of CENTIEL SA explains: “CENTIEL is well-known for its pioneering 4th Generation Modular UPS system: CumulusPowerTM. This industry leading three-phase, modular system offers 99.9999999% (“9 nines”) system availability with low total cost of ownership and is installed in datacenters around the world. However, for smaller applications, often a tower or rack-mounted single-phase UPS is all that is required.

“The approach to our clients – whether they are a large datacenter, or a small commercial organization - is the same. Our aim is to provide the very best advice, technical support and solutions to suit individual requirements. The addition of EssentialPower to our product portfolio, now means we can offer the complete UPS flexibility, regardless of a client’s size or power protection needs.

“Traditionally, many small commercial organisations have bought their UPS systems ‘over the counter’. However, our highly qualified and experienced technicians can advise and provide un-biased recommendations to those same organisations, in relation to a suitable UPS for their particular load size and the criticality of the power protection needed. As trusted advisors, we always work in the best interests of our clients and also provide cost-effective maintenance contracts. The technical support we offer, plus access to our engineers in the event of an emergency, plus regular UPS health-checks, ensures solutions are always properly maintained and right-sized for clients’ changing power protection requirements now and in the future.”

EssentialPower supports loads from 1 to 20kVA. The flexibility of Tower or Rack (2U to 4U) configuration ensures the product can fit easily into an existing server rack or to be placed on a floor or shelf in a comms room, maximizing the use of space. EssentialPower is available in single-phase in – single-phase out, or three-phase in – single-phase out, making it suitable for many mission-critical applications. Matching battery cabinets are also available for extended runtime requirements. For even further resilience EssentialPower units can be connected in parallel to provide N+1 redundancy.
