Modular design helps next generation UPS family boost reliability

AEG Power Solutions announced the first models in a new generation of UPS – the Protect 8 line. Designed and built using a modular, building block architecture, Protect 8. UPS systems offer the most reliable performance available on the market. The building block approach marks Protect 8 as the world’s first ‘customer-ized’ UPS each UPS is tailored to each customer’s specific requirements.

Protect 8 employs VFI (Voltage Frequency Independent) technology and is a true online, double conversion UPS which guarantees a filtered, stabilised and reliable output voltage free from frequency variations, over-voltage and voltage dips. The AEG Protect 8 has a 3 phase

400VAC input and single phase 230VAC output rated at 10/20/30/40/60/80/100/120 kVA, with customer specific ratings available on request.

"In designing the Protect 8 generation, we built upon the know-how and technology developed for the Protect 5 UPS family to achieve even-higher levels of reliability," said Luca Buscherini, UPS Protect Family Line Manager, AEG Power Solutions, Belecke, Germany. "Protect 8. UPS are customer-ized.
