Eaton expands 5P UPS product line with 1U and 2U
By Stephanie Lai
June 27, 2013 – Eaton is adding space-saving tower, 1U and 2U rackmount form factors to its 5P uninterruptible power system (UPS) product. The new configurations complement Eaton’s existing 5P portfolio and help IT professionals optimize energy performance in network closet and server room applications through industry leading electrical efficiency up to 99% and Energy Star qualification of select models, says Eaton. Through a graphical display located on the front of all 5P models, users are provided with energy usage information and the ability to customize UPS settings at the push of a button. By integrating the software suite with the 5P, users can manage their entire power infrastructure remotely and directly through virtualization management platforms. The integration enables automatic and transparent live migration of virtual machines (VMs) during power disruptions to unaffected devices, and also provides shutdown of computers, VMs and servers during an extended power outage. The new Eaton 5P tower and rackmount models range from 550VA (420W) to 3000VA (2700W).
