BladeUPS – Scaleability

Meet current and changing requirements with modular architecture

The building block of the Eaton BladeUPS system is a 6U rackmount module that provides 12 kW of backup power protection. The system expands easily to provide maximum results. As your data centre grows, the system’s modularity plays a key role in optimising your capital planning and deployment. Using the patented and field-proven Hot Sync paralleling technology, up to six BladeUPS modules can be paralleled for extra capacity or redundancy, providing 60 kW of redundant backup power protection in one 19 inch rack.

Patented load-sharing control intelligently distributes the workload among modules without requiring direct synchronisation links among them. Any module can provide backup support for any other, with no interruption or downtime. For instance, in a redundant system you could perform full maintenance on any module without any interruption of conditioned power to the protected IT equipment.

Expedite deployment with flexible installation options
The BladeUPS can be deployed in a variety of system architectures to support the specific requirements of your computer room or data centre, and to support the desired level of redundancy (Tier I through Tier IV, as defined by the Uptime Institute).
Centralised power protection for small computer rooms
Start with one 12 kW module and expand to 60 kW with N+1 redundancy in single 19” rack enclosure.
Zone power protection for mid-sized Computer Rooms
Deploy 60 kW (N+1) in a 19” rack to protect a row of IT equipment racks.
Distributed Power Protection
Distribute 12 kW modules to protect one to three racks – thereby achieving zero footprint power protection. Hybrid power protection. Stronger redundancy of power protection for equipment racks containing critical IT equipment.
For dual-corded loads with one source on a central UPS and the other on utility power, you can back up selected loads with a local BladeUPS, deployed in a distributed or zone fashion.
For dual- or single-corded loads on a central UPS, you can back up selected loads with a local BladeUPS (distributed or zone) in series with the central UPS. This configuration provides maximum reliability close to critical loads, with minimal heat dissipation and maximum efficiency. With the flexibility to deploy and re-deploy a BladeUPS either in single or parallel systems – data centre managers can tailor power protection to adapt to changing needs, often without the need for an electrician or service technician.
Eaton also offers an assortment of plug-and-play power distribution accessories with various input and output connections to distribute power from the BladeUPS to rack power strips or directly to high-power servers.
