TAIPEI,Taiwan -- October 25, 2012

Delta Electronics, the world’s leading provider of switching power supplies
and DC brushless fans, as well as a major energy saving solutions provider in
many fields, today announced the introduction of Modulon DPH which is a three
phase UPS with modular architecture by its MCIS (Mission Critical
Infrastructure Solutions), a business unit of Delta Electronics and a
specialist in sustaining mission critical operations. Scaling from 25kW up to
200kW in a standard 19” rack enclosure, the Modulon DPH supports ultimate
availability for data center operations and provides the benefit of “pay as
you go” without over-sizing the UPS. While achieving ultimate availability,
the Modulon DPH does not compromise on power efficiency performance. When
availability, efficiency and expanding according to business needs are
essential, the Modulon DPH is the ideal UPS system to provide power protection
and total cost ownership (TCO) savings.

“As the world is highly IT dependent, the data center now is a critical engine
driving business operations. To ensure operation continuity, the first concern
is to maximize the availability of the data center and the UPS is critical for
power,” said Dr. Charles Tsai, general manager of MCIS business unit, Delta
Electronics.

The Modulon DPH is a fully fault-tolerant design achieved by self redundancy
of the power module, control mechanism and aux power. Full control logic
allows the system to self-synchronize in the event of main module failure and
automatically switch to a backup for assured continuous operation. Further
advantages, such as hot-swappable functionality of critical components and
modules can improve the serviceability of the UPS system thereby reducing MTTR
close to zero and assuring maximum uptime and ultimate availability in the
data center.

“As the amount of data grows, the expansion of the data center to cope with
the growth at the right size at the right time and with the right investment
is another critical concern. Delta’s standard rack-based modular design of the
Modulon DPH allows vertical scaling up from 25kw to 200kw according to power
requirements,” said Dr. Tsai. The Modulon DPH supports N+X redundancy in a
single enclosure without requiring an extra UPS, resulting in huge capital and
footprint savings while retaining expansion flexibility on par with business
growth. Expansion is achieved by paralleling up to 4 units of the Modulon DPH.

Dr. Tsai stated, “Apart from availability and scalability, power consumption
is always an important factor in dealing with operational expense. The
baseline is to use power-efficient equipment.” As a true online double
conversion UPS, the Modulon DPH delivers critical power protection to the data
center and the leading power performance in the industry. The overall AC-AC
efficiency of the Modulon DPH is 95% at 30% load and 96% at half load, which
results in at least 6% more power savings than the legacy model of 92% power
efficiency. The full-rated power (kVA=kW) provides the maximum power capacity
to the load. Compared to UPS systems with output of PF=0.8 and PF=0.9, the DPH
supplies 25% and 11% more power respectively, and eliminates the issues of UPS
de-rating to further benefit capital and operational expense savings.

Designed in a 19” enclosure, the Modulon DPH provides rack-based flexibility
for data center layout and infrastructure set up. For the critical power of
data centers, it can integrate power distribution in the same rack or through
the deployment of paralleled rack enclosures depending on power capacity
requirements—a perfect combination of power protection and distribution to
streamline power management in the data center.

Dr. Tsai said, “The Modulon DPH is ideal for medium-sized data centers and can
deliver huge TCO savings. We are proud of its ultimate availability, scalable
flexibility and excellent power performance and efficiency. Delta MCIS is
confident it can be the best backup power provider and support the growth of
business competitiveness.”
