In UPS applications like data centers, medical labs, and industrial process controls, there continues to be a universal concern about operating costs. This results in the demand for quantifiable reductions in power usage and an emphasis on best possible efficiency in the mission-critical infrastructure. Most UPS vendors offer “eco modes,”or in Eaton’s case, Energy Saver System (ESS).
These operating modes offer dramatically increased efficiency, and make it easy to prove significantly reduced operating costs (OPEX) for power and cooling. However, for the traditionally risk-averse community of users and specifiers, skepticism and even trepidation remains. Their attitude is to operate the UPS the same way because it works, and for the last 40 years, UPSmanufacturers encouraged this sentiment. But today, enormous pressure is being applied to manage costs.
