Power protection for servers and telecoms

MGE Office Protection Systems : 14 August, 2007  (New Product)
Pulsar MX frame power protection is fully scalable to operate on expanding networks
MGE Office Protection Systems has announced its new Pulsar MX Frame, accommodating MGE's new Pulsar MX 5000 RT power and battery modules to give users a true modular and scalable power protection solution.

MGE OPS has designed the Pulsar MX 5000 RT power and battery modules and Pulsar MX Frame to meet the need of growing companies for power requirements to protect additional servers, blades and telecommunication systems. A fully scalable solution that can expand as power needs increase, and designed to deliver business continuity 24x7, the Pulsar MX uses a modular, redundant architecture that can scale power and runtime as demand increases or when higher levels of availability are required, all in a compact system, priced for the growing small to mid-sized organisation.

When the Pulsar MX on-line double-conversion power modules are connected in parallel within the new Pulsar MX Frame, the power can be readily scaled from 5 kVA to 10, 15 (with redundancy) or 20 kVA power levels - without disrupting connected equipment - all within the Pulsar MX's compact 16U (28 inch) frame.

Jason Koffler, MGE Ops Marketing Manager comments, "With up to 18 kW, this scalable solution provides the highest power density in the industry and is a perfect match for a rack fully populated with blade servers. For the first time, the same power and battery sub-modules can be used for both the standalone UPS and the modular chassis, which significantly reduces the entry cost to scalability. Through this innovative approach, users can decide to acquire a cost-competitive Pulsar MX 5000 RT, and then migrate to a fully scalable, redundant solution using the Pulsar MX Frame while still using the original power and battery sub-modules of the original 5 kVA standalone UPS".

Using only 3U (5.25 inches) for the combination of power and battery sub-modules, the 5 kVA compact 3U rackmount/tower units feature hot-swappable battery and power sub-modules, auto battery-test, switched outlets, multilingual LCD display and intuitive power management software which is compatible with all of the popular operating systems, including Microsoft's Vista. To prolong battery life, the Pulsar MX features a wide input voltage and frequency range to avoid using the batteries unnecessarily. For extended backup time, redundant external battery modules can quickly be added. If a battery extension should fail, the system will not be affected because of its built-in redundancy. For high-density rack environments, the 15 and 20 kVA models can be used as stand alone or integrated into a standard 19in rack.

Pulsar MX Frame has two communication slots for versatile, redundant network integration. MGE Office Protection Systems' extensive power management offering is a perfect match for the Pulsar MX Frame, providing coverage for most environments found in high-density computing like Linux or VMware as well as the ability to dynamically manage redundancy at the protected server level.
