Tripp Lite unveils new line of UPS systems
Dubai, April 8, 2013
Tripp Lite, a leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, has introduced a new line of high-capacity 3-phase UPS systems in the Middle East.
The portfolio – comprising models SU80KX2, SU100KX2 and SU120KX2 – has been designed to protect critical systems, eliminate downtime and lower costs in data centres and other high-density applications that are crucial to companies across the region.
With advanced features like ideal power output, modular architecture and parallel capabilities, the new UPS system provides powerful, cost-effective protection for vital data centre or server room equipment, a statement from the company said.
The products’ extreme efficiency and 1-to-1 generator sizing can lower costs during installation and day-to-day operation, while scalable capacity and expandable battery runtime allow the UPS infrastructure to grow with the data centre, the statement said.
Vipin Sharma, Tripp Lite’s vice president for Middle East and Africa, said: “The release of the new UPS systems has proven to be timely as industries across the region, particularly the oil and gas and construction sectors, put a high premium on operational efficiency.”
“The economic environment in the Middle East has been very buoyant, thanks to rising oil production, resurgent exports and increased government spending. Much of the region's prosperity, however, is tied to income generated by the petroleum and construction industries and in order to mitigate risks to oil production and delays in building projects, countries like the UAE and Saudi Arabia have continued to invest in developing their IT infrastructure,” Sharma said.
According to recent research, the Middle East UPS market is expected to generate a total revenue of almost $218 million (Dh801 million) in 2013, slightly higher by 1.6 per cent from the 2012 figures. By 2014, the regional UPS market will likely grow by 9.4 per cent to over $238 million (Dh876 million).
“We are optimistic about this market, especially as more and more companies look to protect mission-critical data centre equipment. These new UPS systems are packed with features to ensure reliability and complete protection, like modular architecture, but also keep installation and operating costs lower than multiple smaller units or legacy systems,” Sharma concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
