Meeting today’s industrial and commercial power protection challenges

Technological advances in virtually every field of human endeavour are bringing unprecedented demands for clean, uninterrupted power and with it, the need for ever more dependable, powerful and flexible UPS solutions. 

In every industrial application, new technology deployment poses corresponding UPS challenges and issues associated with load changes, harmonic isolation, ambient conditions and power wastage are more potentially damaging than ever. Piller’s UB-V Series, built on the renowned reliability of UNIBLOCK ™, represents a highly flexible and reliable electrically coupled UPS system. Now with an entirely new control platform, this next generation UNIBLOCK ™ provides up to 3.2 MW of UPS protection in one single-module. Unlike all other UPS technologies, the UB-V Series can compensate for voltage dips of up to -50% without recourse to stored energy or diesel generators and offers many other benefits:-

  • Battery or flywheel
  • Co-generation
  • Operational efficiency for capital efficiency
  • Bi-directional power flow
  • Dynamic ride-through

Piller UB-V: packed with advanced features

Piller UB-V is packed with many advanced features including an extended power range, new architecture, control platform, self-diagnostics and the addition of Piller’s predictive maintenance service.

The UB-V range is easily configured to work efficiently with renewable and alternative sustainable energy sources. On-line mode efficiency is typically higher than for other UPS systems across most of the load operating range. This is how it is able to reduce energy costs with absolutely no compromise to the level and quality of protection.

Bi-directional power flow allows operators to feed energy back to the grid, or to transfer power from one energy source to another within a micro-grid. UB-V eliminates the need for multiple-module paralleling to achieve higher power ratings, with the added benefits of better reliability and higher availability.

Piller’s UB-V UPS with power ratings ranging from 1.0MW / 1.10MVA to 3.24MW / 3.60MVA and paralleling up to 100MW / 115MVA provides efficiency of up to 98% at 100% load and an unbeatable 97% at 50% load.


  • Ideal for industrial applications
  • Wide input voltage tolerance (up to -50%)
  • High power density – single unit 1000kVA to 3600kVA
  • Isolation of harmonics between the load and the mains
  • Handling of load steps up to 100%
  • Suitable for export of embedded power
  • High reliability, high mean time between failure (MTBF)
  • Kinetic or battery energy storage
  • Frequency stabilisation during transients or load changes
  • Reactive power compensation
  • Elimination of multi-module paralleling delivers improved reliability and higher availability
  • Reduced space and capital infrastructure costs
  • Exceptional efficiencies up to 98% (IEC 62040-3)
  • Wide leading and lagging load power factor range
  • Low and medium voltage versions offer flexibility for facility expansion
  • Stabilisation of gas/diesel genset or gas turbines
  • Bi-directional power for flow of energy back to grid or transfer of energy sources within micro-grid
  • Quality German engineering and manufacturing

Piller UB-V Series Electrically Coupled UPS for mission critical power protection solutions


The expert design and operational flexibility of the UB-V series means it is able to meet the specific challenges presented by each of a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors:

In the increasingly advanced world of industrial automation, power fluctuations or failures in systems that are designed never to stop can lead to disastrous losses, with man-hours wasted on cleaning or repairing assembly lines, removing wastage and resetting complex manufacturing processes. Piller UPS systems are configured to precise manufacturing specifications, ensuring continuous clean power to keep systems running in any power-adverse conditions.

Semiconductor Production
Driven by communications, consumer electronics, and automotive applications, the global semi-conductor industry is set for exponential growth far into the future. In plants where highly sensitive automated equipment manufactures multi-core chips and integrated circuits in clean room environments, voltage surges or sags can cause entire batches to be scrapped, with potentially severe financial consequences.

Power disruptions in healthcare environments can mean the difference between life and death. Where outages and system malfunctions in operating theatres and scanning rooms can bring life-threatening downtime, clean, continuous power is of utmost importance. Piller’s UPS power conditioning solutions are built on unrivalled knowledge of the intricate challenges presented by the healthcare sector and their design, location, configuration and internal structure always have patient safety and protection of data and vital equipment as foremost considerations.

Food & Beverage 
In just a few short years, artificial intelligence and smart manufacturing systems have revolutionised food and beverage processing and packaging, driven not only by the need for improved productivity but also increasingly strict food security requirements. For manufacturers, processors and packagers of chilled, frozen and convenience foods, bakeries and ‘just in time’ manufacturing systems, power protection is a more crucial consideration than it has ever been.

Airports & Aviation
In the highly sophisticated, technological infrastructures of modern airports, consistent, quality power is critical for efficient day-to-day operation. Any sudden loss of power could result in costly flight delays, cancellations and even loss of life. Which is why international airlines, airports and military establishments place their trust in Piller. Securing runway lighting and power protection within terminals constitutes the majority of Piller installations although other airport and aircraft systems are supported by the most reliable UPS available, providing ultimate peace of mind.
