By Battery Power Staff

September 19, 2018 | Eaton has announced the North American launch of its 9PXM uninterruptible power system (UPS), a scalable, modular backup power solution for a wide range of data center, industrial and commercial applications. With plug-and-play power, user-replaceable battery modules, and a 94% efficiency rating at full load, the 9PXM UPS gives data center operators and IT managers a flexible solution for delivering reliable backup power that can scale to meet their needs.

“From edge data centers and colocation facilities to commercial and industrial facilities, IT managers need versatile backup power that meets their businesses’ unique requirements,” said Graciano Beyhaut, senior product line manager, Eaton in a press release. “We’ve engineered the 9PXM UPS with a modular and versatile design that allows these users to start small and expand as their business needs grow, all while maintaining a compact footprint.”

The 9PXM’s high power rating, small footprint and easy rack conversion make it an ideal backup power solution for a range of IT applications. The solution’s online double-conversion technology, Eaton’s Advanced Battery Management (ABM) technology and high efficiency mode deliver the highest level of reliability with the lowest total cost of ownership in the 4-20 kVA range, eliminating customers’ need to compromise reliability for efficiency.

Eaton’s 9PXM UPS offers a range of benefits and features, including smart extended battery module (EBM) technology that can sense the need for battery replacement; hot-swappable power and battery modules to reduce service calls or redundant system bypass; compact footprint; compatibility with 4-post or high-density racks, power distribution units (PDUs) and network gear for seamless integration into IT infrastructure; and universal slots for extended runtime in a single chassis.

The 9PXM UPS uses Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software to trigger automatic remediation policies such as live migration of virtual machines in response to unplanned power events for disaster avoidance, or Visual Power Manager to manage and control edge deployments and large infrastructures.
