Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton has announced Energy Star certification of its 9PX and 9SX UPS units. Energy Star, a joint programme established by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy, is intended to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Eaton's 9PX and 9SX UPSs available in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) earned the Energy Star following stringent third party testing and verification of meeting the program's energy efficiency requirements. The certification guarantees that Eaton products are among the top 25% of most efficient UPSs on the market and allow customers to effectively reduce electrical usage and carbon footprint.
"Reducing power consumption without sacrificing reliability in server, storage and network environments is a primary challenge for today's Information Technology (IT) and data centre professionals," said Christophe Jammes, Single Phase Product Manager for Eaton. "Eaton has a global commitment to developing energy efficient solutions that provide our customers with the highest possible business value, and earning the Energy Star for our server and network class UPSs is a well-deserved exemplification of our mission."
The Eaton 9PX and 9SX UPSs were launched in EMEA in 2012 and are the next generation of energy efficient devices for 5 to 11 kVA applications. The 9PX units feature up to 95% efficiency in online double conversion mode, and 98% in high-efficiency mode, with a power factor of 0.9, enabling them to deliver 28% more power than other UPSs in the same class. They are particularly suitable for IT and facility managers who are looking to protect their equipment in computer rooms and small data centres as well as in industrial, manufacturing and medical applications.
Eaton plans to continue the Energy Star qualification process for additional UPS products. To learn more about Eaton's power quality products, visit www.powerquality.eaton.com
