Columbus, Ohio – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today announced the Liebert® APS uninterruptible power supply system (UPS) earned ENERGY STAR® qualification.
Designed for small- to-medium-sized sites, the Liebert APS system supports power requirements of up to 20kVA/18kW. It eliminates the need to over provision, increasing operational efficiency and contributing to the UPS system’s low total cost of ownership (TCO). It is ideal for data centers that expect increasing power requirements as they meet growing demand for resource-intensive applications. The unit’s FlexPower™ modules allow power capacity to grow in 5kVA /4.5kW increments up to 15kVA/13.5kW or 20kVA/18kW. Battery modules may also be added as needed to increase backup time. FlexPower modules and battery modules are hot swappable, and can be added or replaced by the user.
“We’re pleased to announce that another Liebert UPS has received the ENERGY STAR qualification,” said David Sonner, vice president, marketing, Emerson Network Power in North America. “The Liebert APS is the highest efficiency UPS in its class, achieving up to 92 percent efficiency in double-conversion mode.”
As part of its larger electrical equipment efficiency improvement program, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) instituted its ENERGY STAR for UPS program in late 2012, affecting UPS products rated greater than or equal to 1500 watts. To qualify for the ENERGY STAR certification, the Liebert APS was subjected to testing by a UPS-specific certification body recognized by the EPA. This certification process examines products based on average power, efficiency and efficiency variation for determination of steady-state, and UPS products meeting the EPA’s requirements use an average of 35 percent less energy than their standard counterparts.
