October 2001 – Invensys Powerware Division, a global leader in uninterruptible power system (UPS) technology, today announced the Powerware® 5125 advanced power solution for workstations, servers. With extended battery modules capable of providing extended backup time, the PW 5125 will enhance the reliability and availability of network systems ranging from 1-3kVA. Available in both rack-mount and tower configurations, the PW 5125 is one of the most flexible UPSs in its class available today.

“As usual, Powerware continues to raise the standards of UPS technology, and our latest innovation, the Powerware 5125 out-performs all other UPSs in the same class offering particularly advanced, efficient, cost effective power protection for modern communications networks” said Jorma Mannerkoski director product marketing, EMEA

Fundamental to the PW 5125 are features often found only in higher, more costly kVA units including:

· Extended battery module available for all models

· Advanced Battery Management (ABM) –reduces battery recharge time and extends battery life by 50%, and provides advanced notification of end of battery life for both internal and Powerware externally connected battery modules.

· Load segments - enables separate control of up to three discrete loads with one UPS.

· Wide voltage regulation with buck and double boost technology - minimizes battery use to correct voltage fluctuations.

· Bundled Powerware Software Suite delivers complete power management for extensive control and monitoring.

· Hot-swappable batteries – you can change the batteries without switching off the UPS

With its advanced battery management products, Powerware continues to raise the technological standards in the industry. ABM is capable of extending battery life by 50% with a three stage charging process. Unlike the traditional trickle charging, ABM optimises recharge time and eliminates overcharging. Because of the ability to connect extra battery modules PW5125 can be used for applications with longer backup requirements

Load segment features of the PW 5125 allow separate control of two or three load segments. This gives the network manager flexibility for powering up, shutting down non-essential equipment (such as monitors) during extended brownouts or power failures, and scheduling on/off times for security or power conservation. Load segments save money by eliminating the need to buy multiple UPSs for separate load control.

An additional X-slot interface option provide network managers with extra communication enhancements with the choice of SNMP/WEB, RS-232, USB, or relay modules. All Powerware UPS and connectivity products are manufactured to ISO 9001 standards and meet or exceed worldwide specifications for safety, performance and excellence.

The PW 5125 tower units will be available in October 2001, starting at a list price of £399. The rack mount configurations will be ready for first customer shipment in November.
