CyberPower Introduces Energy-Saving Green UPS

March 21, 2008 by CyberPower

The past few years have seen rapid increases in energy prices as well as an increasing environmental awareness by consumers. For these reasons, CyberPower Systems has developed an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) technology that reduces energy consumption — GreenPower UPS™ technology. CyberPower is committed to leading the UPS industry in Green UPS designs that reduce energy consumption.

After a year in development and hundreds of tests, the CyberPower engineering team zeroed in on an advanced circuitry bypass design. The meticulously engineered design improves energy efficiency by significantly reducing energy consumption during normal utility power operation.

“The patented GreenPower UPS™ design reduces the power consumption of UPS systems by up to 75% compared to conventional UPS systems,” said President of Manufacturing, Michael Ho.

The GreenPower UPS™ advanced circuitry design is both impressive and solid. During normal power mode the GreenPower UPS™ design bypasses the Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) and Transformer. This patented technology dramatically reduces the energy used and heat generated by the transformer during normal mode. “Our competitors’ UPS systems have a significantly lower level of energy-efficiency. Especially when the UPS design is conventional online double-conversion, or line interactive and running under full load,” said Mr. Ho.

How significant is GreenPower UPS™ technology? In a world where conserving the environment is an increasing concern energy-saving is not only a matter of cost-savings but social responsibility. According to the 2007 Frost and Sullivan UPS Industry report, several million UPS units under- 5kVA UPS are sold in North America at a value of $1.6 billion. Consequently, “The cumulative cost-savings to customers, energy-savings, and reduction in environmental impact is truly remarkable,” said Director of Marketing, Brad Canham. Also, with an ability to reduce a UPS unit’s energy consumption by up to 75%, the energy saved by individual and business users of GreenPower UPS™ technology is significant.

In turn, CyberPower channel partners are excited by the added-value of the energy savings that GreenPower UPS™ brings. “An energy-efficiency design has become one of the top factors customers are considering when comparing UPS products,” said Director of VAR Channel Development, Pete Miesen.

“There is no point to customer’s wasting energy and money on inefficient UPS systems when they don’t have to,” said VP of Worldwide Sales, Dan Ayala. “CyberPower is offering the best choice to customers who want an energy-efficient, reliable, meticulously engineered UPS.”
