Courtesy: General ElectricGE's (NYSE: GE) TLE Series uninterruptible power supply (UPS) global platform is a transformer-less, three-phase UPS that provides up to 97 percent efficiency in double-conversion mode and up to 99 percent in eBoost, or multimode, operation. The TLE platform helps lower system operating expenses and power usage effectiveness (PUE)In addition, the TLE Series delivers clean power quality, including low-input harmonics, high-input power factor and low-output voltage distortion, to the critical loads.

GE’s TLE Series is designed for mission-critical facilities such as data centers, healthcare facilities and financial institutions with the broadest range of double-conversion output power available in the industry today—ranging up to 1.5 megawatts (MW) in a single module. To meet customers’ reliability, efficiency and power demands worldwide, the TLE Series is offered in both UL and CE versions. The CE version spans up to 1.2 MW, while the UL version ranges up to 1.5 MW.

The platform offers strong power density, a measure of the amount of power output compared to the product’s size or footprint, which reduces the overall capital expense of installation. The small footprint makes the TLE ideal for both new construction and retrofit applications where space optimization is a priority.

GE’s Redundant Parallel Architecture (RPA) provides the TLE Series with the ability to connect up to six TLE modules together for high-capacity system redundancy and reliability. The RPA system eliminates single points of failure, ensuring the load is protected in the event a single UPS module is out of service.

The TLE UPS offers improved serviceability and a lower mean time to repair than standard UPS systems in part due to its front-accessible maintenance, advanced diagnostics and monitoring capabilities, including waveform capture. These capabilities improve system reliability and speed up the time needed to get a UPS back in operation after a repair.
