In response to a growing need for flexible, scalable and compact solutions, Liebert Corporation recently launched a new power fulfilment system to protect business from losses of both data and productivity.
Scalable from 4 to 16kVA, the Nfinity can be configured to multiple combinations of power and battery modules as required to maximise redundancy and battery back-up times. Nfinity features a patent-pending electrical current sharing technology to guarantee equal distribution of power among all modules. The IntelliBattery modules ulitise multiple sensors to monitor, troubleshoot and isolate modules that are necessary to protect the battery network. The modules provide microprocessor control with layers of redundancy to ensure system operation and communications availability. This ensures a constant supply of premium quality power and a seamless transition among modules in the event one is taken offline.
The modules are also hot-swappable, allowing the user to seamlessly remove or install modules without disruption of power to the connected load. The Nfinity also incorporates a bypass technique to guarantee continuity of output power. It also offers multiple communication paths for the monitoring and control of both in-band and out-of-band communications, including a front-panel display, direct serial connection and remote access to the network via SNMP or by modem connection. The unit ships fully assembled and can be easily installed out of the box. RRP starts at $9000 and the system is available now.

Billed as the "intelligent double conversion true online UPS system", the PP+3000B is a high performance, powerful and intelligent UPS system for mission-critical applications.
The Pro Power Plus series is the most effective solution to protect sensitive equipment from all types of power disturbances, according to Upsonic. The true online double conversion UPS features automatic bypass, near unity power factor and an RS232 communication port for sophisticated control and monitoring. The UPS provides an economical way to deliver a clean, continuous 240 volt 50Hz supply to critical or emergency equipment.
Harmonic distortion is less than 3 per cent at full linear load. An LED display indicates line, inv, bypass, fault, load level and battery level. The system also features Auto Restart and DC startup capabilities, as well as a RS232 LAN interface with mains fail, battery low and remote shutdown UPS. The PP+3000B has a run-time of 5 minutes at full load and 15 minutes at half load. The system retails for $3735.60 and is available now.
