Falcon Electric Adds 10kVA Model to its FN Series Scalable N+1 UPS Rackmount Family

Users can easily scale the FN UPS using individual 3, 4, 5, 6, or 10kVA rackmount models, providing up to 30kVA with N+1 redundancy or up to 40kVA when N+1 redundancy is not required. Critical applications such as industrial manufacturing and process control, 911 call centers and computer networks require scalability and/or N+1 redundancy for continuous operations.
In contrast to other modular UPSs, the FN is a compact, stand-alone power protection system that may be connected in parallel. This design approach eliminates the added expense of buying separate cabinets to house control, power and battery modules.
For increased energy savings, the unit’s “ECO Green Mode” setting increases the AC/AC efficiency up to 97 percent during times when the connected equipment is not in use – reducing energy consumption, cooling expense and CO2 emissions. When not in ECO Mode, the FN operates at a 90 percent AC/AC efficiency level – decreasing energy demands. In addition, the FN Scalable UPS features input power factor correction, which lowers current demands on building wiring.
For critical processes that cannot afford downtime, redundancy is crucial. The FN Scalable UPS ensures 24 hour operation with N+1 redundancy up to 30kVA. If an individual UPS requires maintenance, the UPS is automatically sensed and taken offline. The user is notified through the LCD display and an audible alarm.
