Uninterruptible power supply with MegaFlex 

Did you know ABB provides the most compact uninterruptible power supply?

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is an electrical device that provides quality power and protects from input power interruptions that could come from voltage surges and spikes, voltage sags, total power failure, and frequency differences.

With the amount of digital data growing faster than ever before, data centers are critical for the ingestion, computation, storage, and management of all this data. And therefore, every data center uses an UPS system to ensure the servers and all sensitive pieces of computing equipment are never susceptible to the slightest change in the electrical power flow.

ABB’s newest UPS, the MegaFlex DPA, has been designed to ensure the smooth operation of today’s data centers with their increasingly high-power demands. The MegaFlex DPA solution is sustainable and reaches (with 97.4 percent efficiency) the highest efficiency ratings available. It delivers 99.9999 percent availability and reliability, with the most compact footprint on the market, which is up to 45 percent smaller compared to competitor models of equal power rating.

Energy efficiency is of particular importance to large data centers, due to the vast amount of energy they consume. Therefore, every percentage point of improvement in efficiency brings significant savings on energy losses and represents a reduction in CO₂ emissions. MegaFlex DPA actually saves 30 percent on energy losses, day by day, year by year.
