When investing in a higher-load uninterruptible power source (UPS) for a network or data center, the benefits of opting for a modular power supply make it the optimal choice for many companies. Modular UPS units are fast replacing standard UPS units as the most cost effective and energy efficient power sources on the market today.
Delta’s Modulon family UPS Series features three-phase modular UPSs for power rating requirements above 20kVA that serve as power protection for mission-critical infrastructure such as datacenters, mid to large network equipment, and more. The highly efficient UPSs within the Modulon family include the DPH Series (25kW ~ 200kW), which is a fully rated power (kVA=kW) UPS that provides ultimate availability with its self-synchronized power and control module, and the NH Plus Series (20kVA ~ 120kVA), which offers a remarkably low total cost of ownership (TCO). Both NH Plus and DPH support dual input. In addition to vertical expansion in a single rack, both offer parallel expansion up to 4 units.
The DPH series is an ideal option for mid-sized data centers and networks. It combines expanded power with high availability and built-in redundant components, to provide a leading modular UPS unit for data centers with loads between 25kW and 200kW of power needs. The NH Plus series, meanwhile, offers a variety of affordable options for various power ratings between 20kVA and 120 kVA.
As IT operations continue to grow in importance for businesses, one of the main concerns of datacenters is operational continuity. Most datacenters require the highest availability possible to sustain mission critical functions such as infrastructure power backup. With the constant growth of the amount of data that must be managed, and energy costs always on the rise, data centers continue to be power-hungry facilities, which creates an ongoing need for low cost, high-efficiency solutions. The Modulon family UPS Series meets these requirement, delivering an ideal solution for datacenters demanding peak efficiency and availability at a lower TCO.
Pairing versatility and efficiency, both the DPH and NH Plus Series can be counted on to require minimal energy and thereby lower overhead. Modular power supply units like these use the least energy of all standalone UPS units, and therefore cost the least to power and maintain over time, even at the high-load levels of power needed to support networks and data centers. Modular UPS units are comparable to upgraded and higher-load rackmount UPS units. Since they are designed to stack vertically, rackmount UPS units take up much less floor space than standard units. By also employing a vertical structure, modular power supply units like the NH Plus Series and the DPH series are likewise engineered for an incomparable level of scalability through the use of power modules.
The word Modulon (Modular + on) highlights scalability, which is the core feature of this UPS design. Clients can purchase UPS systems with greater flexibility based on their initial unit needs, and as demands increase, this decision will result in maximum system benefits and a lower TCO.
