Overview

Product Overview

The CP1500PFCRM2U is a PFC Sinewave rackmount UPS that provides battery backup (using sine wave output), surge protection, and EMI/RFI filtration for security systems, audio/visual equipment, and networking equipment requiring active PFC power source compatibility.

The CP1500PFCRM2U features Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), which corrects minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, and a multifunction control panel with a color LCD to quickly confirm status and alerts at-a-glance. Remote management and/or monitoring is available with optional purchase of a Remote Network Management Card or Cloud Monitoring Card. At only 10.5 inches in depth, the CP1500PFCRM2U fits comfortably in short-depth rack installations where space is at a premium.

The CP1500PFCRM2U comes with a three-year warranty (including coverage of batteries) and a $500,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee.

Product Features
  • Battery Backup
    Supplies power long enough for equipment to properly shut down when utility power fails. Helps prevent loss of data and minimizes the component stress caused by a hard shutdown.
  • Surge Protection
    Diverts excess voltage away from sensitive electronic equipment during an AC power surge or power spike to prevent damage.
  • Sine Wave Output
    Generates energy that is identical to, or cleaner than the utility company’s power grid. Benefits include low total harmonic distortion, minimal electrical noise, and optimal line clarity.
  • Short Depth Rackmount
    Fits comfortably in racks as small as 14 inches in depth, which is ideal for situations where space is at a premium.
  • EMI/RFI Noise Filter
    Maintains clean power for connected equipment by filtering out electromagnetic and radio frequency interference to improve picture and sound quality.
  • Multifunction LCD Panel with Color Display
    Displays immediate, detailed information on the UPS battery and power conditions. The color display quickly alerts users to potential problems before they can affect critical equipment and cause downtime.
  • Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
    Conserves battery life by increasing the AC power and maintaining a safe voltage level without switching to battery mode.
  • Data Line Protection
    Prevents power surges that travel through Ethernet lines from causing damage to electronics.
  • Widely Spaced Outlet(s)
    Accomodates transformer-sized plugs without blocking other outlets.
  • Line Interactive Topology
    Exists when a line interactive UPS has an autotransformer that regulates low voltages (e.g., brownouts) and over voltages (e.g., spikes) without having to switch to battery.
  • ENERGY STAR
    This model is an ENERGY STAR® certified Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system. ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy-efficient products and practices that help save money and protect the environment.
  • GreenPower UPS™ Bypass Design
    A patented design that allows utility power to bypass the UPS transformer, when AC power is stable, which reduces energy consumption, noise, and heat buildup.
  • Ultra Quiet Design
    Minimizes noise during operation for a quieter work environment.
  • PowerPanel® Business Software
    Provides IT professionals with tools for monitoring and managing the UPS and backup power. This software offers remote management functionality. Free software download available here.

Sine Wave Power

In the U.S., utility companies provide power to households and offices by distributing single phase alternating current (AC) power at a frequency of 60 Hz. Electrical power can be graphically depicted as a sine wave whereby the electrical signal alternates from +120 volts to -120 volts at a rate of 60 times per second (60 Hz). To enable more efficient operation of large, heavy equipment, utility companies provide commercial and industrial locations with three phase AC power which consists of three overlapping sine waves offset by 120 degrees.

Although utility companies strive to distribute 100% sine wave power, many factors can introduce electrical noise into the AC power signal in the form of sine wave distortions and as voltage sags, surges, spikes, or other irregularities. Sine wave power is important for the optimal functioning of sensitive desktop computers and related peripheral equipment. Without sine wave power output, microprocessor-based equipment can become inoperative or sustain damage from power signal distortions.


Active Power Factor Correction Supplies for IT Equipment

During the past thirty years, people have become more aware of the amount of energy used by IT equipment and devices. For many years, desktop computers and workstations inefficiently consumed power, partly due to the design of the power supplies which transformed AC power (from the wall outlet) to DC power (used by computers). This voltage transformation was relatively inefficient as reflected in low power factor ratings.

In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with advocates in the IT industry, developed the ENERGY STAR® program to prompt the development of energy-efficient products. Today this program is recognized as an international standard.

To comply with ENERGY STAR standards, manufacturers of desktop and workstation computers incorporate Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) as part of the engineering designs, enabling energy efficiencies of 95% or higher. Computers with Active PFC power supplies require sine wave AC power, as supplied by utility companies, for trouble-free operation. For this reason, sine wave UPS systems have become the best choice for backup power.

Simulated or stepped sine wave power, provided by entry-level UPS systems, may be problematic or incompatible with Active PFC devices. Sine wave power varies continuously from positive to negative. Simulated sine wave power mimics a sine wave by using a squared-off approximation. Due to this approximation, simulated sine wave power momentarily creates a zero power gap. When power is interrupted, a computer with an Active PFC power supply may not recognize incoming simulated sine wave power due to the zero output present in the approximated wave. This could cause the system to unexpectedly shut down or sustain system component stress.


Automatic Voltage Regulation

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) in line interactive UPS systems stabilizes the incoming AC signal to maintain output power at a nominal 120 volts by controlling high and low voltages without resorting to battery power. This significantly increases battery life and lessens the likelihood of data loss, memory freezes, and system crashes.

How AVR Works in a Line Interactive UPS

A line interactive UPS includes an AVR autotransformer a special type of transformer designed to switch between powered coils of wire in response to variances in utility power input, thereby increasing or decreasing the magnetic field and the resulting output voltage to connected equipment.

This type of UPS tolerates undervoltage brownouts and overvoltage surges without consuming backup battery power by automatically selecting different power taps on the AVR autotransformer. During normal operation, incoming AC power bypasses the autotransformer (where voltage highs and lows are controlled) while also charging the battery. When the incoming voltage falls below the AVR range, the UPS switches to battery backup, and the DC-AC inverter circuitry is engaged. Power will continue to be supplied by the battery-inverter circuit until incoming voltage returns to the range manageable by the AVR.


GreenPower UPS Technology: Bypass Design

GreenPower UPS™ Technology from CyberPower improves operating efficiency, reduce heat generation, and consume less power than conventional UPS models.

Our patented Bypass Design allows current to bypass the transformer and automatic voltage regulation (AVR) when utility power is normal, thus reducing energy consumption and associated costs. Because utility power functions normally most of the time, the bypass design allows for substantial energy savings. This technology also reduces heat generation, an important factor in decreasing operating costs.


Short Depth Chassis

At only 10.5″ in depth, this UPS is ideal for installations where space is at a premium. The UPS fits comfortably in racks that are 13.5″ in depth or greater, improving cable management and allowing for easier attachment of connected devices. The lightweight, plastic chassis also makes this a preferred option for wall mount applications.
