Raleigh, NC— Eaton Corp. has introduced a three-phase, uninterruptible power system (UPS), Powerware 9355, which is available in 10 kVA and 15 kVA models. The company says its new double-conversion, online UPS represents its continued commitment to providing reliable, power-efficient, cost-effective, user-centric solutions for protecting critical systems.

Powerware 9355 provides 91% efficiency, which reduces utility costs, extends battery runtimes, and produces cooler operating conditions. It is scalable to suit a range of applications, so the UPS can grow with corporate demands. The UPS features Eaton’s proprietary ABM technology, which increases battery life, and includes self-diagnostic capabilities that alert users to potential problems before they become costly incidents. For added capacity or redundancy, the system fully supports Powerware Hot Sync technology for reliable paralleling of up to four equivalent UPS modules.

‘Eaton’s new Powerware 9355 embodies more than 40 years of experience in power protection and incorporates the technological ingenuity that has made us the market share leader in UPSs over 5 kVA globally,’ says Ed Komoski, VP and GM of Eaton’s Power Quality Solutions Division. ‘By clearly researching and identifying the power protection issues our customers are facing in the real-world, we have set the standard for value and product performance with the Powerware 9355.’

Featuring a tower design that is half the size of comparable three-phase UPSs, Powerware 9355 ensures protection from power disturbances, while reducing demand for space in crowded data centers. The system delivers a 0.9 output power factor and includes 18 types of output receptacles, offering IT and facility managers simple installation that eliminates the need for running new conduit and wiring.

Powerware 9355 also has power management software for secure remote monitoring over a LAN or the Internet, and also includes one year of Eaton’s new eNotify remote monitoring service. eNotify gives users 24/7, real-time response to UPS and battery alarms, immediate notification of significant events via phone, e-mail or pager, remote troubleshooting and problem resolution. The service includes a monthly monitoring report detailing performance and trend analysis of the Powerware 9355.

Similar to other members of the Powerware Series 9 UPS family, Powerware 9355 provides critical protection from all nine of the most common power problems facing businesses, including power failures, power sags, power surges, under voltages, over voltages, switching transients, line noises, frequency variations and harmonic distortions.
