AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for industrial and critical infrastructure applications, has announced Protect Flex, its industrial grade fully modular UPS. The system has a robust design suitable for demanding environments and is configurable to all electrical system schemes, while offering the benefits of power modularity. Protect Flex features a wide range of configurable options and a high level of scalability and flexibility.
The Protect Flex is designed to meet an increasing demand from industries to secure power supply with equipment which has a compact footprint yet still offers a high level of reliability and resistance to environmental factors such as humidity, corrosion and dust.
AEG Power Solutions provides a new concept of UPS system that combines a modular architecture based on 10 and 15 kVA/kW and hot swappable power modules. Transformer-less and IGBT based, with a customisable set of options, it provides N+1 inbuilt power redundancy to maximise reliability
Protect Flex is a simplified, flexible and highly cost-effective UPS which can cope effectively with harsh environmental conditions, with an IP43 rating protection. The system is designed to maximise savings in terms of footprint and power installed (kVA). Its electrical and mechanical design, cabling and protection devices, are engineered to maximise security and simplify maintenance operations. High quality UPS, benefiting of the long engineering experience of AEG PS for rugged systems, Protect Flex achieves high reliability with optimum availability. Uptime availability is ensured through a high-quality equipment and design, while the Mean Time To repair (MTTR) is minimised, due to its modular and hot-swappable architecture.
The scalable architecture of the UPS reduces CAPEX and optimises OPEX costs. The power modules are based on the latest IGBT double conversion technology, with a low input THDi and input power factor close to one, even when a low percentage of load is applied.
“Operations continuity is not an option in many industries or service businesses today, comments Alessandro Nalbone, product manager AEG Power Solutions. Whenever highly reliable power is needed, Protect Flex provides a compact, flexible and robust solution, minimising costs and maximising availability. It’s the ideal combination for many applications such as operations in chemical and petrochemical industry, mining, or any other demanding environment, but also for transport critical applications like control and signaling”. Protect Flex is also answering healthcare environments requirements (group 0-1 according to IEC 60364-7-710).
