Active Power to Showcase Next Generation PowerHouse and UPS Platforms
at Datacenter Dynamics Converged
Critical Power Expert to Speak on Transformation of Power Grid and
Impact to Data Centre Power Infrastructure
EVESHAM, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- With data
centre power requirements on the rise, space for additional critical
power infrastructure to support growing server densities and IT
capacity will continue to pose an issue for operators. In the United
Kingdom, requirements currently sit at nearly three gigawatts.(1)
To help UK operators better manage their IT and physical
infrastructure, Active Power, manufacturer of UPS (uninterruptible
power supply) systems and modular infrastructure solutions, will have
on display its newest PowerHouse demonstration system at Datacenter
Dynamics Converged in London (14-15 November).
With a focus on improving overall total cost of ownership, PowerHouse
integrates new features to enhance its value and technical
differentiation and incorporates a redesign of key components for
cost efficiencies. The solution is a timely and compelling modular
platform for a variety of applications including organisations that
are rapidly expanding or that require temporary critical power during
facility build out.
PowerHouse is also now designed to support Active Power's new
CleanSource High Density (CSHD) 625 kVA UPS (uninterruptible power
supply). CSHD is the most power dense UPS on the market at this power
range, consuming half the space of a legacy system.(2) With capital
costs equivalent to a conventional battery based system and up to 30
percent savings in operating expenses(3), CSHD is an attractive
alternative to incumbent UPS technology particularly for leading
innovators in data centre design.
PowerHouse Tours at Technology Park
The modular infrastructure
demonstration system with CSHD will be located in the show's
Technology Park located on the ground floor level of the ExCel ICC.
For a guided tour of PowerHouse, please visit the Active Power stand
(#46) during exhibit hours, 07:45-17:45 on 14 November and
07:45-17:00 on 15 November.
Active Power Presenting at Conference
Bernardo Mendez, UPS product
line manager at Active Power, is scheduled to speak at show. In his
ndez moves away from the usual conversations about
how load profiles are changing in the data center and highlights the
increasing transformation of the utility grid and its impact on
today's mission critical data centre. Mendez will also discuss why a
paradigm shift needs to happen in UPS design.
WHAT: "The Changing Face of Utility Power and the UPS"
WHEN: Thursday, 15 November, 11:25-13:10
WHERE: Hall 5, ExCel ICC, London

Footprint comparison based on published specification of 750kVA
(480V) and 625kVA (400V) units with four standard battery cabinets
versus CSHD Flywheel UPS
(3) Calculation based on CSHD 625 kVA vs
625 kVA rated double conversion UPS with four battery cabinets.
Savings due in part to high energy efficiencies, less cooling
requirements, and low maintenance.
