For more information on our UPS systems or to arrange a site survey, please contact our projects team. We provide a a complete range of single and three phase UPS systems including rack mount and modular.
Edge computing coupled with 5G mobile wireless technology promises to be the next stage in the 5th industrial revolution and to provide the bridge to many new services, some of which are still ideas in their nascent stage of ‘if I had an App for this…’
There are several key choices to make when it comes to selecting the right uninterruptible power supply to install with a server rack. These include not only the topology but the load size, form factor, runtime, access for maintenance and connectivity.
Power supply design is one of the key decisions that must be taken whenever building a new server room or refurbishing and existing one. There are several elements to consider even for a single stack rack cabinet if you are to ensure that your server installation can run through power outages.
The critical power path in a server room, datacentre or other type of network environment is the path from the building incomer (mains power supply) to the critical load connection socket or terminal (PDU). Elements within the critical power path can include LV switchboards, UPS systems and standby power generators, transformers, sub-distribution panels, power distribution units, fused spurs and socket outlets.
Edge computing pushes data processing nearest to the device that needs the information to operate, rather than pushing the data back to a centralised datacentre. Edge computing is essentially a de-centralised approach. In terms of power protection to ensure resilience in an entire decentralised eco-system it is important to protect both the servers within the cloud datacentre and each data-processing point along the Edge computing network. Larger three phase UPS systems may be required for datacentres with far smaller uninterruptible power supplies required for small load servers, PCs and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
If you have any questions or need any advice, please get in touch and we'll be happy to help
We have over 30 years of experience working within data centre and server room environments. Our knowledge and experience means that we know how to design, install and maintain the right cooling, energy management, power and monitoring solutions for any critical IT environment.
