ECO Datacentres Benefit From Kinetic Energy
RIELLO UPS has unveiled its new Master MHF series - a modular, scalable power protection system for ECO-targeted datacenters looking to optimize their investments in power protection.Flyw
The battery free Master MHF series is ideal for datacenters looking to reduce their carbon footprint as is 99% efficient and Smart-grid ready.
In a traditional UPS, back-up power is provided by a battery pack. The Master MHF series utilizes the kinetic energy of a flywheel to provide sufficient runtime to ride through short duration mains failures and start a generator set.
The new Riello UPS allows large datacenters to move away from the traditional problems associated with the use of batteries.
With its modular design, Master MHF provides a number of advantages over more traditional battery enabled systems, including increased efficiency, a compact footprint (up to 50% reduction), lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and almost instantaneous recharge time.
Available from 100-500kVA, and supplied in matching cabinets, the Master MHF series is designed with a high charge/discharge rate (without degradation) and boasts a 20 year design life.
The Master MHF is scalable, and can be adapted to best meet the needs of a variety of installations; providing a first line of defence against critical power interruptions.
For installations subjected to frequent short-term disruptions, the flywheel module provides protection against ‘glitches’ or outages – shielding the UPS batteries from excessive discharge, extending the battery life and reducing the associated costs.
In hospitals or other sites with emergency generators, the Master MHF series can also be used as a source of clean, stable power – bridging the gap between generator start up, and ultimately adding a further level of protection. This also makes the system ideal for use in containerised power centres.
Robin Koffler, general manager at Riello UPS (UK) said: “The Master MHF series is just another example of how Riello UPS are continuing to offer our clients, reliable turn-key solutions to their immediate power protection requirements.
“But as a Smart-grid ready UPS product, the Master MHF system will also be able to meet the challenges and opportunities that the power networks of the future offer us.”
