August 18, 2008--Hewlett Packard's rack-to-tower HP R5500
uninterruptible power system (UPS) is designed for dense data center
environments, featuring 1500 watts per unit or 4500 watts total in
3U.

This line-interactive UPS uses a digital signal processor
rather than a transformer, and provides voltage regulation without using
the battery. With two independently controllable load segments, an
optional rack-to-tower conversion kit, and no-cost HP Power Management
software bundled in the box, the R5500 can be customized for specific
situations and to manage systems remotely. Option cards and
Extended Runtime Modules (ERMs) add networking capabilities and load
segmentation, while increasing system back up time.

The two load segments provide the flexibility to configure scheduled
startups and shutdowns, in addition to independently control separate
loads. Working in conjunction with HP Power Management Software, the R5500 can be configured to prioritize and extend the runtime of
critical devices. By shutting down a load segment that is connected to
less critical equipment, the runtime for more critical equipment is
extended, providing additional protection.

Other features include:
- RoHS compliance
- 5000 VA / 4500 Watts in 3U
- Attached line cords for easier connection
- Extra long battery life with Enhanced Battery Management (EBM)
- Longer run time with Digital Signal Processing technology (DSP)
- Optional Extended Runtime Modules (ERMs)
- Optional tower conversion kit that changes rack-mountable R5500 to tower
- Enhanced front panel display
- Hot swappable electronics & batteries
- Support for two load segments
- Limited three-year warranty, HP's pre-failure warranty,
and a load protection guarantee in North America

Sold through authorized dealers, the HP R5500 UPS and rack-to-tower
conversion kit are available now with U.S. Internet prices starting at
$3,099 and $150, respectively. HP Power Manager is a web-based
application that enables administrators to manage an HP UPS from a
browser-based management console, and is bundled at no cost with the HP
R5500 UPS.
