Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton has announced that its latest range of three-phase UPSs has been approved for inclusion on the Energy Technology List (ETL) for meeting specific energy saving criteria.
Eaton’s 93PM range of 30 to 50 kVA/kW UPSs now qualify for the ETL under the government’s Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, meaning users can offset 100% of purchase and installation costs against tax in the first year. The ETL is managed by The Carbon Trust.
The ECA scheme was developed to help tackle climate change by granting special status to products on a product-by-product basis and encouraging businesses to invest in these energy-saving products which are specified on the ETL. In conjunction with The Department of Energy and Climate Change, the scheme allows businesses who install products that meet the specific energy efficiency criteria to claim 100 per cent of their first year capital allowance on their investments.
Eaton’ 93PM UPSs now qualify for the ETL and are specifically designed to maximise the uptime of critical processes whilst keeping energy costs down. Their systems are designed for advanced IT environments including virtualised and, cloud data centres, co-location facilities and mission-critical applications. When in double-conversion mode, the 93PM has a performance rate of 96.4 per cent efficiency, whilst at the same time removing any abnormalities in the utility power. When used in step with Eaton’s Energy Saver System (ESS) technology the efficiency rate reaches an impressive 99 per cent. This is all provided in a compact 0.5m2 footprint.
Eaton is committed to developing energy-efficient power solutions, as evidenced by their 11 products approved for the ETL. As well as units in the 93PM range Eaton’s 9395 range of UPSs with ratings of 275, 550, 675, 825 and 1,100 kVA are also included.
