Fast Charge Technology and Smart Battery Management (SBM) prolong the capacity and life of a UPS battery. This provides greater efficiency and fewer battery replacements.
Fast Charge Technology enables the backup power supply to more quickly return to full capacity (100%) because each Extended Battery Module attached to the UPS uses its own charger. Typical systems share only a single charger for all attached battery modules, which increases the time required to fully restore backup power.
Smart Battery Management (SBM) charges a UPS battery in three phases, extending its functional life. SBM also reduces the heat produced by a UPS battery and reduces battery deterioration.
Extendable LCD Control Panel
Often a UPS is installed in a hard-to-reach area, such as a crowded IT closet, the bottom of a rack, or on the floor. A removable LCD control panel allows for easy access and can be placed up to ten feet away from the UPS when connected by a DB26 cable (sold separately).
UPS Status displays vital information about the UPS. There are 19 status types, including input and output voltage, battery information, runtime estimates, load data, and more.
LCD Settings Configuration offers customization of the UPS with 38 specific operation parameters including output voltage, sync frequency, alarm settings, and more.
Event Log allows for recording of UPS events with or without PowerPanel® Business Edition management software.
Multi-Language (select models) provides options to display text in English, Spanish, French, or German.
Disable Audible Alarms turns off audible alarms, as needed.
Manual Battery Test enables user to run a UPS system test to ensure proper operation.
Higher Capacity UPS for Longer Runtimes
To determine the size of the UPS that you need, identify the total power load (measure in VA/Watts) of the connected equipment, along with the amount of runtime required (in minutes). Also, think about any equipment that might be connected to the UPS in the future, which could affect the calculations for load and runtime.
Estimating expected UPS runtimes can be challenging, particularly when the consistency of the utility power is not well known. Selecting a UPS with a load capacity 30-35% above the required power load offers the advantage of longer runtimes. This can lower the risk of overloading the UPS and causing an unnecessary UPS shutdown.
Although the initial outlay of a UPS increases with its size because of the higher capacity required for components, long-term operating costs typically decrease. When a UPS operates below maximum capacity, it reduces the stress on components. Sizing a UPS to run loads significantly lower than its capacity also increases spare capacity for future growth, along with extending runtimes.
Efficient Remote Management
The Smart App Series offers full-featured network UPS management capabilities with the PowerPanel® Business Edition software and an optional SNMP network management card. These remote management tools enable centralized power management, monitoring, control, and configuration. They also provide for safe shutdown of connected servers, workstations, and other devices via a standard Web browser or network management system (NMS).
The PowerPanel® Business Edition software, included with every Smart App Sinewave UPS, enables an administrator to remotely manage each aspect of the UPS and facilitate the orderly automatic shutdown of connected equipment in the event of an extended power outage. This software also provides comprehensive network power management for corporate servers and critical workstations supported by the UPS, such as application/operating system shutdown, event logging, reporting, alerts and notifications.
Programmable Outlet Control
Smart App UPS systems allow programming of critical outlets and non-critical outlets, giving administrators the ability to prioritize outlets and increase battery backup runtimes for the most critical equipment during extended power outages. Programmable outlet control also gives an administrator the option to delay-start non-critical outlets, permitting the internal batteries to fully recharge more quickly. This feature is vital to data centers where seamless, uninterrupted equipment bootup is a necessity.
Sine Wave Power
In the U.S., utility companies provide power to households and offices by distributing single phase alternating current (AC) power at a frequency of 60 Hz. Electrical power can be graphically depicted as a sine wave whereby the electrical signal alternates from +120 volts to -120 volts at a rate of 60 times per second (60 Hz). To enable more efficient operation of large, heavy equipment, utility companies provide commercial and industrial locations with three phase AC power which consists of three overlapping sine waves offset by 120 degrees.
Although utility companies strive to distribute 100% sine wave power, many factors can introduce electrical noise into the AC power signal in the form of sine wave distortions and as voltage sags, surges, spikes, or other irregularities. Sine wave power is important for the optimal functioning of sensitive desktop computers and related peripheral equipment. Without sine wave power output, microprocessor-based equipment can become inoperative or sustain damage from power signal distortions.
Active Power Factor Correction Supplies for IT Equipment
During the past thirty years, people have become more aware of the amount of energy used by IT equipment and devices. For many years, desktop computers and workstations inefficiently consumed power, partly due to the design of the power supplies which transformed AC power (from the wall outlet) to DC power (used by computers). This voltage transformation was relatively inefficient as reflected in low power factor ratings.
In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with advocates in the IT industry, developed the ENERGY STAR® program to prompt the development of energy-efficient products. Today this program is recognized as an international standard.
To comply with ENERGY STAR standards, manufacturers of desktop and workstation computers incorporate Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) as part of the engineering designs, enabling energy efficiencies of 95% or higher. Computers with Active PFC power supplies require sine wave AC power, as supplied by utility companies, for trouble-free operation. For this reason, sine wave UPS systems have become the best choice for backup power.
Simulated or stepped sine wave power, provided by entry-level UPS systems, may be problematic or incompatible with Active PFC devices. Sine wave power varies continuously from positive to negative. Simulated sine wave power mimics a sine wave by using a squared-off approximation. Due to this approximation, simulated sine wave power momentarily creates a zero power gap. When power is interrupted, a computer with an Active PFC power supply may not recognize incoming simulated sine wave power due to the zero output present in the approximated wave. This could cause the system to unexpectedly shut down or sustain system component stress.
