GE UPS technology receives eBoost with ecomagination qualification
July 30, 2013 - GE Energy says its ecomagination-qualified eBoost software provides data centres and IT organizations a way to reduce energy consumption and cost without sacrificing reliability, boasting increased efficiency of about 92-99% for GE’s 225-750 kVA SG series uninterrupted power supply (UPS) modules. eBoost software continuously monitors utility power quality and activates double conversion mode only when utility power quality falls outside of data centre power quality requirements, reducing the amount of time spent in a less efficient traditional “double conversion” mode, says GE. According to the company, the software also increases reliability and redundancy by enabling up to six UPS modules in parallel operation and by eliminating single points of failure.
