Three Phase UPS
Power supply protection for mission-critical systems
Three Phase UPS solutions are the gold standard in UPS systems. Offering the fastest, most reliable power for your technologies and data, should your main power source fail, Three Phase UPS is a wise choice for those with the most to lose should there be any interruptions to the power supply.
What is Three Phase UPS?
Simply put, three phase UPS systems can handle larger loads more efficiently. Unlike a single phase UPS which has a single input and output, the three phase system uses three conductors (four wires) in order to provide power protection for higher loads.
A single phase connection is less complex and often used for smaller commercial and domestic applications or systems with lower power requirements. Where as a three phase UPS offers higher efficiency and is used in more industrial settings.
What Are Three Phase UPS Systems Used For?
Three phase UPS systems protect mission-critical infrastructure. Generally, they are not required to support smaller units such as basic banks of telecoms or computer systems. Instead, they are used as uninterrupted power supply sources in large technical environments such as data centres, stock market feeds, industrial environments and medical centres.
Three phase UPS systems are usually preferred when handling mass data or using extremely high levels of power. However, they are not always used only for large infrastructure. Sometimes choosing between a single phase and a three phase UPS is more about how important the information is or how much you rely on the systems the UPS might keep running.
Scenarios, where a three phase UPS system may be the preferred choice, include:
Edge Data Centres
Recent advances in 3 Phase UPS technology have delivered cost-effective protection for organisations that operate critical data centres, including edge and micro data centres. Edge and micro data centers are becoming more crucial for organizations as they capitalize on trends like Internet of Things, mobile applications, and cloud computing; all of which require compute power at the network edge.
The latest 3 Phase UPS advancements bring greater efficiency and modularity to 3 Phase UPSs, along with a reduced footprint, improved connectivity and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) – adding value for anyone trying to save time, save money and lower risk.
Large / Colocation Data Centres
With rapid growth continuing in the data center colocation market, the demand for power has never been greater. As demand threatens to outstrip supply, the frequency of potentially harmful and disruptive power events has increased. Large 3 Phase UPS systems with modularity and redundant features provide the most resilient and reliable form of power protection for Data Centre environments where downtime simply isn’t an option.
With the drive to reduce carbon emissions and the escalating cost of energy, highly efficient UPS systems are helping to reduce carbon footprint and TCO for hyper scale data centre operators, whilst ensuring the highest levels of availability for their hosted clients.
When selecting an industrial 3 phase UPS, businesses have a lot of criteria to consider, including the exact application, environment, risk tolerance and more. Selecting a 3 phase uninterruptible power supply for any given commercial or industrial application is crucial to ensuring not only uptime for your applications, but also for safety. That includes the safety of whatever process or production you need to protect as well as the safety of your employees and, potentially, members of the public.
Consider an oil and gas platform out at sea. If any of the devices or processes required to maintain safety aren’t functioning due to a power failure, it could put the whole crew in danger from a fire or worse. Similarly, if a public building suffers a power outage at night but the UPS that powers its emergency lighting fails, anyone inside the building could be in danger. 3 phase UPS with long run time battery options are often the perfect solution for industrial process and backing up life safety systems.
What Are The Benefits Of Three Phase UPS?
Although single phase UPS systems are adept for many set-ups and applications, three phase UPS offer an efficiency that is required in mission-critical environments. Aside from those mentioned above, there are many other industries and environments where the three phase UPS solution is utilised to protect business security and the flow of information. Whether you are a business needing to ensure uninterrupted services to your customers or you’re manning infrastructures for organisations where a power failure can compromise safety, the three phase UPS system acts as insurance against power surges and failures.
Installation Of Three Phase UPS Systems
I found Source UPS when looking to replace the large UPS systems on one of our sites. The price was competitive and communication was great, which made it much easier as this is the first time we have dealt with UPS systems. Everything was delivered & installed as promised. We will definitely be using Source UPS again.
