Eaton Adds to UPS Systems
Rackmount UPS units.
Pittsburgh, PA — Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has introduced its new 10kVA Pulsar MX Frame. Sold under the MGE Office Protection Systems brand, the Pulsar MX Frame is now available in a 10U configuration. Accommodating the company's Pulsar MX 5000 RT hot-swappable power and battery modules, the new frame gives users a low-entry cost to scalable power in one easy-to-populate modular system.

As with Eaton's larger 20kVA 16U (28-in.) frame, the same power and battery sub-modules can be used for both the standalone Pulsar MX RT 5kVA uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and the modular chassis, which significantly reduces the entry cost to scalability. Through this innovative approach, users can decide to acquire a cost-competitive Pulsar MX 5000 RT and migrate to a fully scalable, redundant solution using the Pulsar MX Frame while still using the original power and battery sub-modules of the original 5kVA stand-alone UPS.

When the Pulsar MX on-line double-conversion power modules are connected in parallel within the new Pulsar MX Frame, the power can be readily scaled from 5kVA to 10kVA — without disrupting connected equipment — all within the Pulsar MX's compact 10U (17.50-in.) frame. With up to 9kW or 4.5kW with N+1 redundancy, this scalable solution is a good match for a rack populated with blade servers.

Using only 3U (5.25-in.) for the combination of power and battery sub-modules, the 5kVA compact rackmount/tower UPS units have hot-swappable battery and power sub-modules, auto battery-test, switched outlets and a multilingual LCD display.

Pulsar MX Frame has two communications slots for versatile, redundant network integration. The company's extensive power management software provides coverage for most environments found in high-density computing environments like Linux, VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server. The power management software also incorporates seamless integration with the IBM BladeCenter® as well as the ability to dynamically manage redundancy at the protected server level.
