PRODUCT SHOWCASE EMERSON NETWORK POWER
PRODUCTS Emerson Network Power introduced an enhanced AC Power UPS product portfolio. The product range includes two new additions – the Liebert NXC and the Liebert NX – representing the first new offerings in the company’s consolidated AC Power portfolio since Emerson Network Power acquired Chloride in September 2010.
The Liebert NXC and Liebert NX UPS join the company’s latest Liebert GXT, Liebert APM, Chloride 80-NET and Chloride Trinergy products to create a comprehensive portfolio of best-in-class AC Power solutions.
The Liebert APM, Chloride 80-NET and Chloride Trinergy products have all received ECA accreditation – a Carbon Trust scheme in the UK that identifies the most energy- efficient products of their category.
In addition to its UPS portfolio, Emerson Network Power also launched the Avocent Power Rack Manager. It is a standalone solution that allows companies to fully leverage the investment into PDUs by providing centralized management capabilities, including power control. It enables intelligent server grouping across disparate racks, as well as custom reporting, scheduled regular reports and the ability to set real-time threshold alerts.
The complete UPS line-up reduces overall TCO for customers by raising UPS efficiency levels across the range. For Chloride Trinergy systems, overall operating efficiency levels have increased to 98% while maintaining Tier IV data center requirements.
The updated portfolio is the culmination of months of intense research and development work to establish the new industry performance standard for a range of best-in-class products and solutions that meet customers’ needs for efficient, reliable and high-capacity UPS systems
Trinergy is Emerson Network Power’s Chloride flagship UPS. It is the first high- power UPS with an adaptive algorithm that continually monitors the power supply and automatically selects the most efficient operating mode.
The Avocent Rack Power Manager provides state-of-the-art monitoring capabilities, with increased scalability (up to 2500 PDUs) that enables custom reporting, scheduled (new) regular reports and the ability to set real-time threshold alert. It allows a more flexible use of metered data by export capability, and calculates and compares cost across multiple levels for any custom group of outlets to track cost over a period of time and measure the impact of any consolidation or expansion projects.
Emerson is also developing an extensive services capability that includes remote monitoring across the entire high-power AC Power portfolio.
Emerson Network Power’s LIFE® system dramatically reduces the risk of unexpected downtime and improves the Mean Time To Repair of equipment failure.
IN THE DATA CENTER
With its UPS portfolio, Emerson Network Power is solving its customers’ availability problems through absolute reliability and maximum uptime. In addition, everyone has to be aware of the rising cost of energy and the need to meet important carbon reduction targets such as the European Union’s 20/20/20. The UPS industry has tried to respond by achieving higher efficiencies.
The need to minimize energy losses is recognized in the Best Practices report for the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres, where it recommends that UPS systems should be deployed in their most efficient operating modes. Emerson Network Power has determined that a third intermediate mode of operation needs to be added to satisfy the data center manager’s critical power-conditioning requirements, which is part of Chloride Trinergy.
Data center managers are now expected to go beyond the performance management of IT equipment and begin to manage the entire data center infrastructure.
The Avocent Power Rack Manager is part of a data center management software portfolio that enables IT staff planning, access, control and reporting of the data center assets, at any time of day or night without regard to hardware type, operating system or network status. It also provides a total reading on power usage for the data center and can set a maximum threshold of power usage.
London Data Exchange (LDeX) is using Emerson Network Power’s Chloride 80-NET UPS systems to help guarantee power availability to its colocation clients at its LDeX1 facility in North London. The data center will accommodate up to 450 server racks from April. To host business-critical server and telecommunications equipment effectively, LDeX required a solution that would guarantee power delivery in any event, return maximum efficiency and be as scalable as client capacity demanded.
Patrick Doyle, London Data Exchange COO, says it is now implementing a three-string UPS system delivering N+N dual-power to each rack. “Our view is that redundancy shouldn’t be a cost option within a colocation facility. At LDeX, total redundancy is the standard layout and we’re sure our customers will feel more comfortable locating their core equipment within such an environment,” Doyle says.
As the facility develops, the modular and scalable design will grow to protect 2MW of utility power at the facility, which is also backed up by diesel power generation.
