CENTIEL to Demonstrate Li-ion Battery Solution at DCW
Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL UK Ltd has announced it will demonstrate its new Li-ion battery solution for the first time at Data Centre World, on booth D1035. In addition, CENTIEL will show its 4th generation, industry leading, three-phase, true modular UPS system: CumulusPower plus the extensions to its range of stand-alone UPS: PremiumTower, ideally suited to applications where minimizing total cost of ownership is a significant factor.
Mike Elms, managing director CENTIEL UK confirms: “Li-ion has been a ‘hot topic’ for some time now and has been adopted as the norm in other sectors such as electronics and automotive. The UPS industry is now taking notice and starting to see how datacentres can take advantage of its many benefits.
“CENTIEL’s CumulusPower – known for its “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability and low total cost of ownership – works with both VRLA and Li-ion so we will demonstrate both battery types within one frame at DCW,” explains Elms. “Although this configuration wouldn’t mix in real-life, using half Li-ion and half VRLA cells will show one of the main advantages of Li-ion technology: that it offers 3-4 times greater power for the same space. As a result, our Li-ion solution is aimed at comms rooms with weight restrictions and or space limitations.
“Because Li-ion works at a much higher temperature than VRLA blocks it can be also advantageous for those who don’t want to use expensive air conditioning to control the temperature in the comms room in order to reduce costs and their carbon foot print. Li-ion also has a longer life than VRLA batteries and much faster re-charge times. At DCW our experienced staff will be on-hand to discuss the pros and cons of both Li-ion and VRLA batteries in relation to various applications, including their suitability for the smallest 10kW N+1 systems, right through to the largest UPS.
“In addition to our battery solutions we will be showing: CumulusPower our scalable and flexible true modular three-phase UPS system that combines class leading availability and efficiency that makes it perfect for use in small, medium and large datacenters,” continues
Elms. “However, not every application requires a modular UPS and for these applications and so we will also demonstrate the latest additions to our PremiumTower range. It has the same Swiss build quality and innovative technology seen in CumulusPower but comes in a lower cost, stand-alone cabinet, ranging from 10kW – 120 kW.”

The priority of any UPS is to protect the critical load and keep it running as long as possible in the event of a power loss. We often talk about developments in modular technology and the associated benefits, such as improved availability and reduced downtime, however, not all project budgets allow for a modular solution.
When cost reduction is a driver for winning contracts, a standalone UPS is a good solution. Choosing a UPS that offers built-in internal batteries eliminates the hidden cost of external battery cabinets while minimising the overall system footprint. A UPS that has a small footprint and is easy to install initially, will provide a smoother handover for contractors and clients alike.
Another consideration when choosing a UPS is Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Purchasing poor quality or inferior designed products can rapidly drive up overall investment costs as batteries and other components may need to be replaced within a short time span.
Purchasing directly from a manufacturer also cuts out the ‘middle-man’ reducing cost and providing the peace of mind of full factory support and servicing, plus a 2-year factory warranty.
At CENTIEL our design team works at the forefront of technological development. We are the trusted advisors to some of the world’s leading institutions in this field. CENTIEL’s stand-alone UPS: PremiumTower for example, has an unbeatable on-line operating efficiency of 96.6% which minimizes running costs. It is currently available in power ratings of 10kW – 250kW, with a range of frame sizes that include built-in batteries to significantly reduce footprint ensuring it can fit into even the smallest comms room.

CHATSWORTH PRODUCTS - How Can You Simplify Deployment? Consider the Benefits of eConnect® PDUs New API. Chatsworth Products (CPI) has endorsed cabinet-level intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) with metering and switching capabilities as an integral part of an effective data center infrastructure management strategy for years.
Chatsworth Products' (CPI) newly redesigned CUBE-iT™Wall-Mount Floor-Supported Cabinet is now available for purchase. It secures and protects large information and communications technology (ICT) and audiovisual equipment, while enabling valuable space savings.
The three-part, swing-out design delivers exceptional strength and rigidity, and includes two heights and depths to support a variety of larger server-converged equipment, heavy-duty UPSs, batteries and Power over Ethernet (PoE) deployments.
Blocking bypass airflow through cabinets is a critical component of any effective airflow management solution, and may temporarily solve cooling issues without the need for additional ducted exhausts or aisle containment.
DC connectors according to IEC TS 62735 are (still) new territory. Tailored for the time being to a very specific clientele and demanding due to the new technology, they pave the way for a future-oriented, efficient power supply with enormous potential for various fields of application.
When trying to decide on the best data center design and the most appropriate products, it is not always about the latest trend. What is right for one data center may not be right for another. It is important to understand the different options available in terms of server cabinets and racks, and the different advantages they can bring.
The pace of deployment for storage continues to increase, while the refresh cycle for compute continues to shorten. How will you support rapid deployment so that racks, power and network are in place when compute and storage is required?
Sam Rodriguez, Chatsworth Products (CPI) senior product manager, was recently interviewed by Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine about the importance and differences of grounding and bonding when deploying cabling systems in nontraditional and harsh environments.
Many businesses and government agencies are increasing their ability to monitor activities by installing equipment. This includes security cameras in outdoor locations where they are exposed to environmental conditions. The ability to protect sensitive electronic devices in these conditions could result in saving property—and even lives. The enclosures that house this equipment should be high quality, providing years of environmental protection.
Chatsworth Products (CPI) is trusted around the globe to help protect their technology investments. CPI's RMR® Industrial Enclosures are often selected for security installations because of their high-quality seals, and the customization CPI can provide to ensure the enclosure matches the equipment.
