World first 2 Megawatt single module lithium-ion UPS

Battery backed UNIBLOCK™ UBT+ 2000 added to Piller range

Piller has unveiled its state-of-the-art UNIBLOCK™ UBT+ 2000, the world’s largest single module battery-backed UPS, delivered VRLA and lithium-ion ready.

Condensing the multiple paralleled solutions of other technologies into a single unit, cuts cost and increases reliability in large data center and other mission-critical environments.

The unit is highly scalable, allowing up to 16 x 2MW to be installed in parallel with a total capacity of up to 32MW in one system. Furthermore, the technology allows for a complete range of system design options, from conventional low-voltage configurations to medium-voltage designs, through to the optimised efficiency and availability of leading-edge IP-bus systems able to deliver Tier III and even Tier IV compliance with simple N+1 redundancy.

The UNIBLOCK™ UBT+ 2000 is a high power density UPS developed from proven technology deployed across many data centers. On-line efficiency ratings of 97% promise notable cost savings for operators. The capital cost per kW is reduced and maintenance is kept to a minimum with its capacitor-free and parallel-free internal layout. Like the servers it protects, the UPS can operate at elevated temperatures often eliminating the need for additional air conditioning equipment.

This UPS will reduce day-one capital cost, save on space and perform reliably to protect your business today, tomorrow and for years to come.
