Exhibitor Press Releases


  • CENTIEL Ltd, the UK subsidiary of Swiss-based UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, will be presenting at Data Centre World to be held at Excel in London, 21-22 March.

    At 11.45am on the first day of the show Michael Brooks, managing director, CENTIEL Ltd, will present on: How close to the perfect UPS is 4th generation modular UPS technology? In this discussion, he will describe the perfect UPS and consider how close the latest UPS technology is to achieving power protection perfection.

    At 10.15am on day two, David Bond, chairman, CENTIEL Ltd will look at whether the latest UPS technology, if correctly configured, can significantly improve both power availability and operating efficiency in his presentation entitled: Can 4th generation modular UPS technology improve datacentre availability above that required by Tier 4 (>99.995%) and help achieve a PUE <1.1? Both presentations will be held in the Energy Efficiency, Cost Management and DCIM Theatre.

    David Bond, chairman, CENTIEL Ltd explains: “The perfect UPS is 100% available, 100% efficient, takes up no space and costs nothing to purchase. With this in mind, we need to consider how close 4th generation modular UPS technology is to perfection and therefore what else needs to be done to achieve power protection perfection.

    “We also need to consider,” continues Bond: “how 4th generation modular UPS technology can help achieve the often mutually exclusive objectives of very high datacentre availability and very low datacentre PUE.

    “Tier 4 datacentres, in order to achieve the required high levels of availability, attempt to remove all single points of power failure by duplicating UPS systems (2N) and by adding parallel redundancy into each UPS (2N+1). The problem is that such duplication causes the UPS to be operated at a low point on their efficiency curve and hence adversely affect the datacentre’s PUE.”

    Bond concludes: “Our day two presentation will discuss how 4th generation modular UPS, if correctly configured, is able to combine the benefits of “nine 9s” availability with very high efficiency even at low loads.”

    As well as presenting at Data Centre World, CENTIEL will be showing its leading-edge UPS solutions stand: D1035.

    David Bond, Chairman CENTIEL Ltd confirms: “CENTIEL acquired MPower UPS at the end of last year to help achieve its ambition of having strong subsidiaries in key global markets. My role is now to guide the expansion of this experienced team and to help develop the already thriving business model in a structured way to continue to deliver service excellence whilst gaining UK market share.

    “CENTIEL SA and its product range are all about quality and innovation. To demonstrate this, the Swiss based design team is led by the designer of the first three phase transformerless UPS, the first, second and third generations of three phase modular UPS and now the fourth generation of the technology known as CumulusPowerTM. Indeed, where the technology thought leaders of CENTIEL SA have led, the market has followed.” continues Bond. “Of course, having world class products means nothing if they cannot be properly supported in the field by world class channel partners and subsidiaries. In the UK, we will combine the established service excellence of MPower with the class-leading UPS solutions from one of the most important manufacturers in Europe, CENTIEL SA, to take power protection to the next level for the benefit of our ever-growing client base.”

  • Multi-Tier IEC Lock

    The Original & Patented IEC Lock C13 Outlets, Now Available in Space Saving Multi-Tiers

  • Global power generation is, according to many experts, at the beginning of a changing trend.  The demand for energy is growing while at the same time providers are under pressure to provide it cleaner and more efficiently.  A diverse range of hybrid utilities and distributed energy resources (DERs) now form part of the mix in supplying energy to many countries around the world, with end users demanding reliable power 24/7 as a basic requirement.

    Data centres, government services, finance & banking, health services, airport & transport industries, military & security services, telecoms and many other services that are intrinsic to modern day life, require power 24/7, and most if not all, resort to having a standby genset system just in case the power fails.

    Keeping these standby systems operative requires a serious commitment to maintenance so that when they are required to perform, they can do their duty without fail.  The last thing any of these industries need is a ‘fail to start’ on the standby generator.

    So how do companies provide effective maintenance of these systems to ensure they operate both efficiently and reliably, whenever needed?  

  • As a global supplier of solutions critical to supporting data centre operations, Tripp Lite intends to highlight a number of new and innovative products in the categories of cabinets and enclosures, critical power and uninterrupted power supplies.

  • Etix Labs, a new global data center innovation provider, today launches the most comprehensive suite of Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring (DCIM) tools in the industry, combining software, hardware, and services to provide data centers managers intelligent infrastructure monitoring, physical security and video surveillance management. Etix DCIM, Keynesia and Etix Video Management System provide a brand new experience to track everything and anything happening in mission critical infrastructures. 

  • CENTIEL Ltd, the UK subsidiary of Swiss-based UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, will exhibit its leading-edge UPS solutions at Data Centre World to be held at Excel in London, 21-22 March on stand: D1035. CENTIEL will, for the first time in the UK, demonstrate: CumulusPower™ its three-phase, modular UPS system which offers class leading “9 nines” system availability and very low total cost of ownership plus: PremiumTower™, a three phase standalone UPS for critical loads of between 10kW and 60kW.

    Michael Brooks, managing director of CENTIEL Ltd confirms: “Availability continues to be the major concern for data center managers and those working in other environments requiring clean, continuous power. Unlike traditional multi-module systems, the CumulusPower™ technology combines a unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), with a fault-tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA), to offer industry leading availability of 99.9999999%.

    “This excellence in system availability is achieved through fully independent and self-isolating intelligent modules – each with individual power units, intelligence (CPU and communication logic), static bypass, control, display and battery,” continues Brooks. “Also, in the unlikely event of a module failure, the module can be quickly and safely swapped without transferring the load to raw mains. Furthermore, the solution has been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses: the high double conversion ef?ciency of 97% at the module level means it is currently the best solution available to protect data centre infrastructure as its configuration also reduces downtime risk, avoiding costly errors as well as increasing energy efficiency.”

    At Data Centre World, CENTIEL will also showcase the PremiumTower™ which offers very similar reliability and efficiency performance as CumulusPower™, in a stand-alone, parallelable version.

    Brooks concludes: “We are really excited about presenting our world-leading UPS solutions at Data Centre World this year, and we are looking forward to discussing how we can help our clients around the world take their power protection requirements up to the next level.”

  • Yuasa, the world’s leading battery manufacturer will put on a powerful display at this year’s Data Centre World by displaying a state-of-the-art dual chemical battery system. The exhibition at Excel, London on 21/22 March will be the first time the system, which utilises both Lithium-ion and Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) battery technology, has been on show in the UK.

  • The innovative cable and pipe seal manufacturer Roxtec is exhibiting at Data Centre World again this year at ExCeL London on March 21 and 22.

  • The growing proliferation of PoE devices will be boosted by the much-anticipated release of IEEE 802.3bt Type 3 and Type 4 PoE in 2018. As a consequence, we will start to see more devices forego their AC power connection for PoE—everything from LED lights and digital displays to building automation devices and potentially desktop computers.

    Many of these devices can be connected to the network using plug-terminated links rather than traditional outlets and patch cords, and the upcoming TIA 568.2-D standard includes support for this configuration also known as  Modular Plug Terminating Link or MPTL.   All this points to more field-terminated plug options and support for plug-terminated links by both cabling and device manufacturers.
