RICHMOND, VA, United States — March 1, 2017 — ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has expanded the Conceptpower DPA 500 480V UL offering to include an optimized modular 300kW UPS solution for mid-sized and large data centers, server rooms and other IT infrastructure applications.
Building on the true online, double conversion UPS design of the Conceptpower
DPA 500, this compact 300kW system allows for three 100kW module sets within
each UPS cabinet, up to four cabinets can be configured in parallel for up to
1.2MW of clean reliable power, adding more flexibility to the specific needs of
the installation. Easy to deploy UPS module sets can be added to the system as
power requirements grow, thus avoiding the need to over specify the initial
“Market trends validate the modular approach to data center design and
construction, enabling the right-sizing of infrastructure and reducing the
initial capital investment towards meeting future needs,” said Laura Ortiz, UPS
Product Manager in ABB’s Power Protection product group. “Conceptpower DPA UPS
systems enable data centers to add capacity only when needed, allowing companies
to operate in smaller footprints, hence saving on both capital and operational
The Conceptpower DPA 500 boasts the lowest total cost of ownership compared
to other UPS systems by offering high energy efficiency, scalability and an
optimized modular design to enable easy front access only serviceability. A
class-leading energy efficiency, with up to 96.5 percent, significantly reduces
system running costs and cooling expenses. More importantly, the efficiency is
optimized and significant savings are achievable under every working condition.
The straightforward nature of the Conceptpower DPA simplifies every step of the
deployment process, from planning through installation and commissioning to full
use. Flexible setup, with top or bottom cable entry frames and fast maintenance
mean lower operating and maintenance costs.
The Conceptpower DPA 500 is part of ABB’s broad range of products and
integrated solutions that ensure data centers operate with optimum reliability
and efficiency. From power distribution systems to enterprise management and
grid connections, ABB provides savings in installation, energy, space and
