RALEIGH, N.C. -- April 8, 2013 -- Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today launched a touchscreen metering and management display for its Power Xpert® 9395 uninterruptible power system (UPS). The 10-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) is one of the largest UPS touchscreens in the industry and its easy-to-use interface shares graphical energy data to help data center and facility managers better manage power consumption and costs.
“Eaton worked closely with facility managers and engineers with the goal of making it easier to manage data centers more efficiently,” said Patricia Matwijec, large systems product manager, Eaton Power Quality Division. “The touchscreen further enhances the award-winning 9395 UPS as an integrated, agile system that delivers data center performance and extensive energy usage information at a glance.”
The intuitive, industrial-grade color interface allows users to view important system conditions and operating statistics, including detailed kilowatt hour (kWh) energy consumption and savings information, in real-time graphical form to help users identify important energy usage trends. Users are also provided with simple touchscreen navigation access to event, data and service logs for a detailed system history.
Additionally, the display works seamlessly with the internal modularity features of the 9395 to allow users to retrieve information at the local UPS level, for the individual modules located within a single UPS, or for an entire system of paralleled UPSs.
Customers can also utilize the display to monitor the performance of their backup power system with access to a detailed battery log and available backup battery runtime. The display’s features compliment Eaton’s eNotify Remote Monitoring service, which provides 24x7 real-time monitoring of UPS and battery systems by trained Eaton product technicians. eNotify allows users to identify problems before they may become load loss events, which can save money, increase power reliability and reduce the risk of critical system downtime.
The energy-efficient 9395 UPS provides backup power and scalable battery runtimes in a small footprint for large data centers, healthcare applications and other critical systems. With the Eaton Energy Saver System, the 9395 is designed to operate at 99 percent efficiency, which can enable a complete return on investment in three to five years.
The new touchscreen is available as a field upgrade for existing models.
