General The substantial advantages of the ENERTRONIC L

Increasing complexity in data centres presents higher demands Sinusoidal input current, no reactive power consumed

catered for just as effectively as the peaks and overloads (see fig. 2)
caused by high start up currents. On-line system (double conversion)
Critical applications must not only be protected against Classification VFI SS 111 in acc. IEC 62040-3 for
mains failures, but also against voltage peaks, troughs and protection of critical load against all types of line
transients. disturbance
UPS system design should form part of the building design Particularly suitable for computer loads
and represents a significant investment with potentially high (no-linear loads)
operating costs. Therefore, no compromise in the security and Designed for double current in the neutral conductor

distortion free. (see fig. 2) UPS systems with 12 pulse thyristor bridge rectifiers and
active filters have difficulty achieving similar results.
Due to power factor correction in the rectifier (pf > 0.99) only
active power is consumed, eliminating the need for reactive
power compensation units and resulting in no charge for reac-
tive power by the utility company. Existing compensation units
can naturally still be utilised. The cost of the ENERTRONIC L
can be recouped in a few years.

A power factor > 0.99 reduces the apparent power (kVA)

compared with conventional UPSs with the same power
output by approx. 20 %, thereby reducing the cost of the
input distribution.
