PITTSBURGH … Eaton Corporation announced today the introduction of its new 10 kVA Pulsar MX Frame. Sold under the MGE Office Protection Systems brand, Eaton’s Pulsar MX Frame is now available in a 10U configuration. Accommodating Eaton’s Pulsar MX 5000 RT hot-swappable power and battery modules, the new Pulsar MX Frame gives users a low-entry cost to scalable power in one easy-to-populate modular system.
As with Eaton’s larger 20 kVA 16U (28-inch) frame, the same power and battery sub-modules can be used for both the stand-alone Pulsar MX RT 5 kVA uninterruptible power supply (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 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 stand-alone UPS.
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 kVA — without disrupting connected equipment — all within the Pulsar MX’s compact 10U (17.50-inch) frame. With up to 9 kW or 4.5 kW with N+1 redundancy, this scalable solution is a perfect match for a rack populated with blade servers.
Using only 3U (5.25 inches) for the combination of power and battery sub-modules, the 5 kVA compact rackmount/tower UPS units feature hot-swappable battery and power sub-modules, auto battery-test, switched outlets and a multilingual LCD display.
Pulsar MX Frame boasts two communication slots for versatile, redundant network integration. Eaton’s extensive power management software provides coverage for most environments found in high-density computing environments like Linux, VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server. Eaton’s power management software also incorporates seamless integration with the IBM BladeCenter® as well as the ability to dynamically manage redundancy at the protected server level.
