Mitsubishi adds second UPS test lab to accommodate growth
By Alyssa Dalton
(UPDATED September 19, 2014, with PHOTO) September 17, 2014 – To help accommodate “rapid growth”, Mitsubishi Electric says it has added a 4MW testing lab in Warrendale, Penn., which will increase its capability to test and demonstrate its three-phase online, double-conversion uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and related equipment.
According to Mitsubishi, the lab will provide customers with real-world electrical load testing, as well as performance and efficiency analysis under varying conditions. When performed pre-installation, the testing assures customers and their consultants that the installation and commissioning of the Mitsubishi UPS will be fast and flawless, it said.
“We’re pleased to open our second test facility where customers can come and see first-hand the superior quality and performance of our precision-engineered UPS systems,” said Dean Datre, general manager of the Power Products UPS division. “Our customers are running mission-critical data centres where electrical power can’t be interrupted for even a millisecond. They appreciate the comprehensive test data on how their UPSs will perform in the real world. This gives them peace of mind that their operations will be safeguarded against damaging and business-disruptive power problems.”
Customers can observe various UPS tests within the test facilities, including:
• Short-circuit test
• AC input failure and recovery
• Unbalanced load test
• Output transfer test
• Efficiency tests
• UPS overload tests
