Energy Power Systems Australia (EPSA), Australia’s specialised Caterpillar engine dealer, has introduced the Caterpillar Critical Protection Module (CPM) to Australia.
The new Caterpillar CPM combines a Cat Flywheel UPS, Cat Diesel Generator and an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) packaged in a sound attenuated and factory tested ISO standard container.
It is designed to provide seamless continuous power in a simple and complete package, delivering constant power protection against surges, sags and power interruptions that can halt operations or cause loss of valuable data or system capacity.
A UPS system protects computers, data centres, telecommunications equipment and other electricals where an unexpected power disruption could cause serious business disruption or data loss.
Greg Conrad, EPSA’s UPS Business Development Manager says: "The UPS by itself only requires a quarter of the floor space of battery-based UPS systems, which frees up space for other equipment.”
He adds that its high efficiency and ability to operate at higher temperatures also reduces air conditioning and electricity costs over the long life of the product.
A reliable UPS is imperative for the operation of critical electronic equipment, such as used by broadcasters and data centres that must meet the demands of 24-hour connectivity; and for organisations operating at high risk such as hospitals, banks and airports.
