Eaton Ships Modular, Channel-Friendly UPS

The new 9PXM is designed to be a flexible power quality option that scales easily over time to meet rising capacity requirements.

Eaton Corp.‘s power quality division has officially introduced a new modular uninterruptible power system to the North American market.

The 9PXM UPS is designed to offer channel partners a flexible, scalable power quality option suited to a variety of use cases.

“From edge data centers and colocation facilities to commercial and industrial facilities, IT managers need versatile backup power that meets their businesses’ unique requirements,” said Graciano Beyhaut, senior product line manager at Raleigh, N.C.-based Eaton, in prepared remarks. “We’ve engineered the 9PXM UPS with a modular and versatile design that allows these users to start small and expand as their business needs grow, all while maintaining a compact footprint.”

The 9PXM allows users to add capacity in hot-swappable, plug-and-play 4 kVA building blocks that end users can easily add or replace themselves. An 8-slot tower SKU offers up to 16 kVA and can be easily converted into a 14U rackmount solution. A companion 12-slot tower supports up to 20 kVA and 21U frames.

According to Eaton, the 9PXM utilizes online double conversion, a high-efficiency operating mode, a redundant N+X architecture, and Eaton’s Advanced Battery Management (ABM) technology to combine high reliability with low total cost of ownership.

ABM is designed to extend UPS battery life by charging power cells rapidly and intermittently, rather than 24 hours a day. 9PXM units also come with Eaton’s extended battery module technology, which automatically detects when batteries need replacement.

The new product is compatible with both 4-post and high-density racks, as well as a range of power distribution units and network gear. It also integrates with Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager software, which can trigger a range of automatic remediation policies, including live migration of power-protected virtual machines to alternate facilities during power outages. Technicians can employ Eaton’s Visual Power Manager software, meanwhile, to administer 9PXM deployments in edge computing environments and large infrastructures.

Software is a key element in Eaton’s strategic plan for the future†amid declining demand for power quality hardware fueled by increased adoption of public cloud infrastructure.
