APC Modular 3-Phase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Let’s talk weather! This has been an interesting summer for the Chicagoland area. It’s either hot & sunny (and humid, of course), or we have “Severe Thunderstorms” with high winds, hail, the works. So, I have gotten used to occasional darkness and listening to the constant “beep, beep, beep” of the UPS’s in my home. I think of those beeps fondly, as without them I would lose all kinds of data on my computer.
I have noticed that, although my power at home may glitch, my internet service, and my servers at work never fail. So what keeps the power in the data center from crashing with the booming thunder and lightning storms? The APC Symmetra PX line for data centers not only keeps the power on during summer storms – it adds to the efficiency of your data center on those hot summer days.
The Symmetra PX is a cost effective, scalable, redundant power protection system. Designed for small or medium data centers, Symmetra PX can also power individual zones in larger data centers. According to APC’s website “the Symmetra PX is a true modular system. Made up of dedicated and redundant modules–power, intelligence, battery and bypass, all engineered into a design that is easily and efficiently serviceable, this architecture can scale power and runtime as demand grows or as higher levels of availability are required. ”
