Did you know?

T1kVA and T1.5kVA Tower UPS-G2 units feature Advanced Battery Management (ABM) technology that uses a unique three-stage charging technique that significantly extends battery service life and optimizes recharge time, compared to traditional charging.

T1kVA and T1.5kVA Tower UPS-G2 units can enhance system availability with adjustable tolerance and sensitivity; users can maximize useful battery life by widening the input voltage window or adjustable input waveform sensitivity to adapt the UPS to a specific environment.

Features

A UPS is a device that acts as a defensive barrier between electronic equipment and incoming power problems. It conditions, regulates, and filters out power disturbances to ensure a clean power source for IT equipment. A UPS also provides battery backup if there is a power failure.

In today’s high availability server environments, unplanned power outages or line quality irregularities can have a considerable financial effect on all sized businesses. The typical utility power is 99.9% available, but that means that there can be almost 9 hours of downtime a year, which includes brownouts and other power quality problems.

Selecting the right UPS can help protect against these potentially costly incidents.

The T1kVA and T1.5kVA Tower UPS-G2 units are most effective against five power problems: power failures, power sags, power surges, under-voltage, and over-voltage.

The T1kVA and T1.5kVA Tower UPS-G2 models offer the following features:

  • High-efficiency protection delivers more real power (watts) in a compact design, lowering power, and cooling consumption
  • Graphical Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) provides intuitive configuration, management, and monitoring capabilities in the following languages to reduce management complexity:
    • Chinese
    • English
    • French
    • German
    • Italian
    • Japanese
    • Spanish
  • Hot-swappable batteries for maximum uptime, availability, and ease of maintenance
  • Subscription based Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) Software seamlessly integrates with leading virtualization environments and cloud orchestration tools. IPM provides effective local or remote power monitoring and management for servers and virtual machines and allows for graceful remote system shutdown
  • ABM technology significantly extends battery service life and optimizes recharge time
  • Load segments for individual control of receptacle groups to manage sequential shut downs and start ups and reserve battery run time for the most critical equipment
  • Optional Network Management Card for enhanced UPS monitoring and control over-the-network through a standard web browser
  • Optional Environmental Monitoring Probe for thermal management requirements (temperature and humidity)
  • Allows dual channel communication through the USB or RS-232 port and an optional NMC at the same time to maximize communications flexibility
  • Remote flash upgradeable firmware for the UPS and NMC, which makes it an ideal solution for remote locations
  • Includes a Remote On/Off (ROO)/Remote Power Off (RPO) port to control power of the UPS unit through a wired remote switch

Note:
To use the IPM software, you must have the NMC installed.
UPSes, PDUs and ATSs, as well as rack mounted servers, hypervisors, and storage devices count as nodes.

Supported servers

The T1kVA and T1.5kVA Tower UPS-G2 offerings are compatible with all ThinkSystem, System x and ThinkServer systems and other devices that require AC power.

To determine the best fit UPS for a particular configuration, the following needs to be considered:

  • Total power load of the hardware that will be connected to the UPS
  • Number and type of outlets required
  • UPS outlet and group limitations for connecting the hardware to the UPS

To determine the power draw of other devices such as storage and switching that will be attached to the UPS, refer to the products user manual for the maximum power draw.
