Mitsubishi Electric has released the AEGIS series UPS as the successor to its 9900A Series. Like all other Mitsubishi Electric UPS products, AEGIS is a three-phase, on-line double-conversion system and features Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology for improved performance and reliability. The AEGIS series is available in 80, 100, 150, 160, and 225 kVA and is UL924 listed.

The AEGIS boasts a relatively flat efficiency curve, indicating that the UPS is highly efficient regardless of the load. “This is significant since loads in various data centers can range from 25% to nearly 100%,” said Dean Datre, general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products Inc.’s UPS division. “The 225 kVA model has an efficiency of 95.7% with a load of just 25% while in the inverter mode.” The optional Enviro-Mode offers users the ability to achieve 99% efficiency.

The AEGIS also has a small footprint, with the largest unit having a width of less than 3 feet. It is also significantly lighter in weight than its competitors of the same size. There are numerous connection options with the AEGIS, which offers cable entry from the top, bottom, and either side. The AEGIS can be configured as either a single module or a multi-module system with up to four units. It includes a three-year parts and labor warranty.

Mitsubishi Electric’s UPS products are designed and manufactured to extend data center uptime, prevent costly data loss and protect against damaging power surges. “The high efficiencies afforded by the AEGIS UPS will benefit our customers running mission-critical applications regardless of the load levels. The lower weight and smaller footprint will make it even more attractive to our customers,” stated Datre.
