March 15, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
March 15, 2019 – Power management company Eaton has launched its 5P rackmount lithium-ion uninterruptible power system (UPS) in North America.
The 5P lithium-ion UPS provides enhanced network security, extended battery life and remote management capabilities for distributed IT and edge computing environments.
The 5P lithium-ion UPS uses lithium-ion batteries that provide enhanced performance compared to lead-acid batteries, with extended service life up to eight years and reducing the need for mid-cycle battery replacement. Lithium-ion batteries also have three times faster recharge capabilities.
Eaton’s 5P lithium-ion UPS includes an on-board battery management system (BMS) to provide up-to-date insights into battery performance, charge cycles and active temperature monitoring to keep the user informed of the lifecycle of their UPS battery.
The UPS also provides network security with the optional industry-first UL 2900-2-2 compliant Eaton Gigabit Network Card, designed to enhance uptime and protect against cyber threats.
