LONDON -- To ensure the continuity of IT services and reduce risk of downtime caused by power outages, AEG Power Solutions (Amsterdam) has announced PROTECT Blue, its next-generation 3-phase UPS family. Engineered around AEG's building block approach, the PROTECT Blue UPS can be connected in parallel to support data center loads of up to 1MW. The 250KVA standalone UPS incorporates AEG's PS Building Block capability up to 1000KVA.

“PROTECT Blue has been developed to fulfil the need for high efficiency, high reliability power protection devices for today’s data center and computer room requirements,” comments Michael Adams, VP Data & IT at AEG Power Solutions. “As a component of our growing Combination Architecture portfolio, its flexible design is optimised for future integration into Micro Grids and other sustainable and renewable systems such as SuperCaps, solar and wind energy.”
PROTECT Blue employs a VFI topology, transformerless design providing high efficiency, greater than 95% under all load conditions, and very low THDI at less than 3%. This performance is obtained by using state of the art IGBT switching and custom designed microprocessors to seamlessly offer N+1 redundant operation. Designed and developed to AEG Power Solutions own requirements, these dedicated microprocessors control the UPS rectifier, inverter and static-bypass concurrently.
Local control is via a large, user friendly touch-screen which also displays available battery autonomy and runtime. Three front panel LEDs are provided to indicate UPS status and an audible alarm sounds if a fault condition occurs. Remote signalling is available from up to two stackable cards with user selected configuration. Connection may be via internal modem, RS485, Profibus, Ethernet, SCADA interface or SNMP adapter and PROTECT Blue is supplied with the CompuWatch software suite for remote status control and monitoring.
AEG Power Solutions offers a full range of professional services to support its UPS sales. These include turnkey solutions, installation and commissioning, Pro Care maintenance services, 24/7 hotline, onsite training, onsite battery replacement, power quality assessment and complete facility and equipment management.
