Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd (UPS Ltd), a Kohler company, announces the launch of the updated PowerWAVE 6000 UPS, with best-in-class performance delivering up to 5 MVA of clean, reliable power.

The PowerWAVE 6000 is a true online, double conversion UPS system that delivers the best combination of availability, energy efficiency, overall power performance and lowest total cost of ownership in its class. The PowerWAVE 6000 offers both intelligent energy management and maximum power protection, using less energy, reducing costs and saving valuable floor space. Single unit capacities are from 60 kVA to 500 kVA and the units are 10x parellelable.

The class leading efficiency (up to 96%) is achieved due to its transformerless design and the Energy Saving Inverter Switching (ESIS) technology that creates up to 96% efficiency at both partial and fully rated loads. This high level of efficiency dramatically reduces the UPS’s total cost of ownership and operating costs as the PowerWAVE 6000 has been designed to extend the lives of its batteries and components. This is in addition to the PowerWAVE 6000 being listed on the Carbon Trust’s Energy Technology List for Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA) which offers tax relief incentives to promote the use of highly energy efficient and saving machinery. Overall this product is a truly green solution for critical applications.

The PowerWAVE 6000 system can be paralleled up to 5 MVA to incorporate redundant critical circuits to eliminate all single points of failure and provide class leading system reliability and load availability and/or redundancy.

Your systems input performance can be improved using the PowerWAVE 6000 as it manages the Total Input Harmonic Distortion (THDi) and a very low level (3.5% at 100% load). This saves unnecessary over-sizing of generators, cabling and ancillary equipment, avoids extra heating of input transformers and therefore extends the lifetime of all input components.

The PowerWAVE 6000 allows you the freedom to create the battery installation to suit your requirements at the lowest possible cost as it allows each battery configuration to match the required autonomy. It has integrated enclosures that can accommodate batteries for 60, 80 and 100 kVA via easy front access. These batteries life cycles can be extended by the inbuilt ripple-free and temperature controlled chargers. For larger units (120 kVA to 500 kVA), matching external battery enclosures can be added to ensure smallest system footprint and easy usability.

This UPS system is designed to power all types of electrical loads and it does this using from only 0.3m2 – 1.41m2 of footprint space saving you valuable space without sacrificing the highest power ratings. This is particularly important for data centres to help maximise revenue-earning floor space.

The new range of PowerWAVE 6000’s streamlines from five units to four, that greater meet the power support needs and variations of our customers. The physical footprint of the range has reduced by a half or quarter, depending on model selection and the installation footprint has reduced by up to 60% leaving you more space to generate income from. Installation is easier and cheaper with this reduced footprint combined with a 50kg weight reduction. The new unit has improved efficiency in partial loads (up to 96%) as well as maintaining the best-in class performance of 96% when supporting a full load.

Single capacities from 60 kVA to 500 kVA
Capacity up to 5 megawatts (5MVA) from 10 units in parallel
Power Density of up to 363kW/m2
