The highly acclaimed, modular PowerWAVE 9000DPA UPS now offers the
lowest total cost of ownership in its class, with its inclusion in
the Carbon Trust’s Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) approved
The ECA Scheme for Energy Saving Technologies was created to encourage environmentally proactive businesses to invest in plant or machinery which has been designed with energy efficiency in mind, and which has been recognised as such on the Carbon Trust’s Energy Technology Product List (ETPL).
The addition of the 30kVA and 50kVA modules of the class-leading UPS means businesses are able to offset the total cost of the equipment against taxable profits within the year of purchase. This results in a 28% reduction in the cost of the critical power equipment – delivering a helpful cash flow boost and a shortened payback period. In addition, delivery, installation, project management and professional fees associated with the purchase can, in many circumstances, also be included – further reducing the cost of the 9000DPA – which already boasts the greatest critical load availability, total flexibility and the highest levels of energy efficiency in the market.
The product has several other impressive features which helped to secure its position on the list, as UPSL’s Sales and Marketing Director, Alan Luscombe, explains: “The 9000DPA is able to offer 96% true online efficiency, which itself significantly reduces system running costs and on-site air conditioning costs – and helps ensure the PowerWAVE 9000DPA offers both the lowest total cost of ownership and lowest carbon footprint of any UPS system in its class.”
Luscombe continued: “The 9000DPA takes full advantage of our state-of-the-art De-centralised Parallel Architecture (DPA), which uses independent, self-reliant, three-phase UPS modules to remove single points of failure. The UPS system also delivers a highly flexible solution with ‘hot-swap modules’, which permit selectable load power capacity up to 250kW (5 x 40kW), all in one parallelable 19" rack format cabinet.”
PowerWAVE 9000DPA key benefits
• Up to 250kVA (200kVA N+1) is a single frame
• Paralleable up to 1MVA N+1
• Decentralised Parallel Architecture (DPA™) assures exceptional reliability, availability and maximum uptime through critical component and circuitry duplication
• ‘Six nines’ (99.9999%) availability
• ‘Hot-Swap’ modularity provides total flexibility ensuring the UPS can be ‘rightsized’ to the critical load at initial installation, reducing initial costs, optimising operating efficiency and reducing the total cost of ownership.
• Quick and simple power upgrade or repair by ‘Hot Swapping’ modules while the UPS is online maximises availability and simplifies system upgrades
• High operating efficiency across a wide load range (94% to 96% efficiency from 25% partial load to 100% full load) reduces system running costs and site air conditioning costs, reducing system carbon footprint
• Small footprint – only 0.43m2 at 250kVA (200kVA N+1) delivering a power density of up to 342kW/m2 – allowing substantial and valuable space savings even at the highest power ratings
• Near unity power factor at partial and full loads (PF>0.99 @ 100% load)
• Low input harmonic distortion (THDi<3%)
• Blade server friendly – provides fully rated output power to power factors between 0.9 leading and 0.8 lagging
• Transformerless technology
• Easy front access for operation and maintenance
ECA Scheme key features
• Open to all businesses that pay UK corporation or income tax, regardless of size, sector or location.
• Provides 100% first-year capital allowances on investments in energy-saving equipment against taxable profits of the period of investment.
• All the products listed on the Energy Technology Product List must meet the energy-saving criteria, published in the Energy Technology Criteria List.
• Only spending on new and unused energy-saving equipment can qualify for ECAs.
• Capital allowances are available for spending “on the provision of” plant and machinery. This can include certain costs arising as a direct result of the installation of qualifying plant and machinery such as; transport of the equipment to the site, and some direct installation costs.
