MPower UPS Takes Power Protection To The Next Level With UK Launch Of CumulusPower


MPower UPS has joined forces with Centiel to market CumulusPower for the first time in the UK. CumulusPower is a three-phase UPS system which offers continuous power availability, fault tolerance and a Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA) which removes single points of failure and is now available exclusively through MPower UPS.

“For the past decade, MPower has successfully provided direct UPS sales, servicing and maintenance to its valued world-wide client base,” confirms Gerardo Lecuona, cofounder and sales director, Centiel. “To eliminate risks that may cause the computer downtime of business critical applications, we are delighted to be working closely with the MPower team who will now supply and support CumulusPower.”

Michael Brooks, managing director, MPower UPS, explains: “Availability continues to be a major concern for data centre managers and those working in other critical environments. Unlike traditional multi-module systems, the CumulusPower technology combines a unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), with a fault tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA), to offer industry leading availability of 99.9999999%.

“This is achieved through fully independent and self-isolating intelligent modules, with individual power units, intelligence (CPU and communication logic), static bypass, control display and battery. In the unlikely event of a failure, modules can simply be swapped without transferring the load to raw mains.

“The solution has also been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses: High double conversion efficiency of 97% at the module level,” continues Brooks. “The small footprint contributes to achieving a high power density of 412kW/m2 with an input THD <3%.

“In addition, vertical and horizontal scalability means clients can pay as they grow as CumulusPower intelligent modules can be connected in parallel configurations to provide redundancy or to increase a system’s total capacity. Serviceability is also straightforward with simple fault clearance and tool-less replaceable, hot-swappable modules.”

Brooks concludes: “As the latest generation of fault tolerant modular UPS solutions, CumulusPower will achieve unparalleled availability. Our dedicated team is excited now to introduce this solution to existing and new customers, taking power protection to the next level across the globe.”
