Centiel, a leading technology provider of critical power solutions based in Switzerland, has unveiled its latest innovation: StratusPower™ - the ultimate uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for data center applications. StratusPower is a state-of-the-art UPS system specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands of data center operators, providing complete peace of mind when it comes to power availability and reliability, while helping data centers achieve net-zero goals. The three-phase modular UPS covers the power range from 50 to 1,500 kW in a single cabinet and can be parallelized for 3,750 kW of uninterrupted power.
Maintaining uptime and avoiding downtime has never been more critical for businesses. Downtime can lead to significant financial losses, damage to reputation, and the loss of customers. Additionally, users face the challenge of improving their sustainability and reducing their ecological footprint. To address these challenges, Centiel developed StratusPower, which features a leading Voltage and Frequency Independent (VFI) efficiency of 97.6 percent and a flat efficiency curve based on proven semiconductor technology. These features enable StratusPower to deliver high efficiency and low energy losses, reducing heat generation and the size and cost of cooling systems while maintaining the highest level of power availability.
One of the key features of StratusPower is the innovative topology known as DARA (Distributed Active-Redundant Architecture), which guarantees full availability without a single point of failure. Each UPS module is independent, redundant, and interconnected, maximizing Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and ensuring power to critical applications with a uptime guarantee of nine nines (99.99999999 percent).
The StratusPower system is highly scalable, making it easy to add or remove power modules as power needs change. StratusPower offers advanced energy management features and a wide range of connectivity options, making it the ideal choice for data center operators looking to optimize their energy infrastructure.
StratusPower incorporates a range of advanced technologies to optimize performance and reliability, including a triple-mode parallel bus that provides an additional layer of redundancy, eliminating any single points of failure in communication between frames and modules. It also features backfeed protection and Distributed Decision Making (DDM©) technology. Furthermore, Centiel's unique DCFlex technology© offers unparalleled flexibility in battery storage installation and configuration, as well as preparing the infrastructure to manage current and future energy sources.
StratusPower features Maximum Efficiency Management (MEM), a user-enabled intelligent feature that saves energy by adjusting power module settings based on the load demand.
With a component design life of over 15 years, StratusPower is the ultimate infrastructure solution for various data centers. It not only minimizes total ownership costs but also aids in achieving sustainability goals with a full commitment to zero waste and net-zero policies.
The system is highly efficient, scalable, and reliable, providing complete peace of mind when it comes to power availability and uptime.
"We are excited to launch StratusPower," says Gerado Lecuona, Director at Centiel. "We understand the challenges of keeping data centers running 24/7 without interruption while aiming for net-zero goals. We designed StratusPower to address these challenges. With its innovative topology, advanced energy management features, and unmatched scalability, StratusPower is the ultimate UPS system for data center operators looking to optimize their energy infrastructure."
