Swiss-based UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has announced it aims to quadruple UPS production volumes with the development of a new manufacturing facility located in Lugano, Switzerland. The new factory will become CENTIEL SA’s global headquarters and will house R&D, production, final test, sales and marketing, logistics, finance in addition to quality control of all CENTIEL’s UPS solutions.
Filippo Marbach, founder of CENTIEL SA explains: “Based upon the demand we experienced in 2017 and the growth we are already seeing this year for our 4th generation UPS technology, plus our projected forecasts, it became clear that we would outgrow our existing factory by the end of the year. Our new factory will enable us to quadruple production volumes and we are already future planning to increase production capacity even further in 2020/21.”
Gerado Lecuona, co-founder and global sales director, CENTIEL SA confirms: “Despite being a young company, only founded in April 2015, CENTIEL’s rapid worldwide expansion is a result of the vast knowledge and experience of our key people. Many in the global market already know CENTIEL’s team from their previous work. For example: in the early-90s, transformerless technology was pioneered by Filippo Marbach and his design team. Mr. Marbach was also the driving force behind the design and development of the first fully decentralized three phase, hot swappable, modular UPS. It is this same design team that are now working together again, continuing their passion for technological innovation at CENTIEL SA.”
Lecuona continues: “The factory move, planned for completion by September 2018, will give us both the additional space we need to increase our capacity and also maintain our existing excellence in logistics and speed of delivery. It will also further improve our training and demonstration facilities for customers plus our ever-growing network of channel partners and subsidiaries. By the end of 2018 we expect to have added another four to six subsidiaries across the world.”
Marbach concludes: “Significant effort has been put into CENTIEL’s pre and post-sales support infrastructure to ensure it delivers class leading service across the globe. When your solutions are deployed in the Arctic Circle and in the deserts and rain forests of the world, delivering excellence consistently requires considerable organization and resources. However, we are passionate about supporting our clients and ensuring their power is always protected regardless of their location.

Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL, has confirmed it has a growing global installed base of its three-phase, modular UPS system, CumulusPower. Launched for the first time in the UK just over a year ago, CumulusPower known for its “9 nines” system availability and low total cost of ownership, has now been installed in datacenters and comms rooms in over 60 countries across 5 continents. More than 50 MW of critical power loads are now protected with CumulusPower in locations across the world including: the UK, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic.
Mike Elms, sales and marketing director, CENTIEL UK Ltd explains: “Although a relatively new company, CENTIEL is a Swiss-based UPS manufacturer whose team of designers have experience that covers the last four decades. They were responsible for the design of the world’s first three phase transformerless UPS and the world’s first three phase modular UPS.
“As a result, the introduction of our 4th generation UPS CumulusPower to the market place has been met with unprecedented enthusiasm on an industry wide basis,” continues Elms. “The main benefit clients are seeing is the system’s class-leading availability of 99.9999999%. CumulusPower has been developed with a unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), with a fault-tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA). The 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.
“In addition, the solution has been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses: the high double conversion efﬁciency 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.
“Our most popular frame is the CP100 which incorporates not only the UPS modules themselves but also the internal batteries providing 10 minutes run-time. Space can be saved as the need for external batteries is negated. For larger datacenters the 10x60kW modules enabling a configuration up to 540 kW N+1 provides the largest single modular frame size for a UPS on the market.
“As we look to the future, developments in battery technology with the introduction of Li-ion will offer further benefits because they are smaller, lighter and operate at higher temperatures. Not all systems are Li-ion ready, but they need to be! CumulusPower is Li-ion ready, so our clients are finding both their power and investment in a UPS system are fully protected for the future with CENTIEL.”

CENTIEL UK Ltd, the UK subsidiary of Swiss-based UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has launched new 25kW and 60kW UPS modules for its pioneering 4th Generation Modular UPS system: CumulusPower. This industry leading three-phase, modular system offers 99.9999999% (“9 nines”) system availability with low total cost of ownership and now with 20% more power density. These new modules complete the family which also includes: 10kW, 20kW and 50kW options, offering the ultimate in UPS flexibility.
“Real estate is expensive and so datacenters need to save space where they can,” confirms Mike Elms, sales and marketing director, CENTIEL UK Ltd. “In addition, more space and racks in a facility can in turn, potentially generate revenue for the operation. Therefore, a UPS which provides the most power, using the smallest footprint possible is a valuable asset.
“The new 25kW and 60kW versions of CumulusPower have all the benefits of our existing industry leading Modular UPS but now offer yet more power in the same the same footprint. 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 remove single points of failure and offer industry leading availability.
“9 nines system availability is achieved through fully independent and self-isolating intelligent UPS modules – each with individual rectifiers, inverters, static bypass, CPU and communications logic and display,” explains Elms. “In the unlikely event of a module failure, the module can be quickly and safely “hot-swapped” without transferring the load to bypass and raw mains.
“In addition, CumulusPower has been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses,” confirms Elms. “The high double conversion efﬁciency 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.”
CENTIEL UK Ltd’s UK-wide team of engineers support a significant customer base with a range of maintenance contracts: from fully comprehensive to maintenance and emergency call out only. Mike Elms continues: “Our engineers are on call 24/7, but like our clients, we prefer to avoid emergencies! It is therefore in our interests to provide the highest quality UPS solutions possible and so we are delighted to introduce the new 25kW and 60kW UPS module versions of CumulusPower now offering the ultimate in power protection to our valued client base.”
Leading Swiss Uninterruptible Power Supply manufacturer, CENTIEL, has introduced a simple solution to allow either top or bottom cabling connection for its three-phase, modular UPS system, CumulusPower. This innovative new design now means the UPS can be connected from either high or low level, without the requirement for a separate cable entry enclosure, enabling a more flexible layout within comms rooms and data centres, maximizing the use of space and potentially reducing installation costs.
Mike Elms, sales and marketing director, CENTIEL UK explains: “Up until now, the majority of most UPS units’ final power connections are at low level within the UPS frame. This made the bending radius of larger cables a problem whether the cables were installed at floor level or, even worse, at high level and then had to be run down tray/ladder to then be worked into the bottom of the UPS frame. The solution was to install a separate: ”top cable entry” (TCE) enclosure meaning additional cost and space which can now be saved. The flexible, modular configuration of CumulusPower means we are able to provide the option of having the UPS input terminals at either low or high level within the frame to accept cables from below or above depending on the site requirements.
“Our focus is to work with our clients to provide the very best UPS solutions which are most applicable for their needs. This simple but highly convenient addition of optional top or bottom cable entry, is another example of CENTIEL leading the field in UPS design for benefit of our valued customer base.”
CumulusPower is CENTIEL’s leading 4th generation modular UPS system with unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), a fault-tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA), offering industry leading “9 nines” system availability and very low total cost of ownership. This excellence in system availability is achieved through the fully independent and self-isolating intelligent modules – each with individual power units, intelligence (CPU and communication logic), static bypass, control, display and battery. The solution has been designed to reduce the total cost of ownership through low losses: the high double conversion efﬁciency of 97.1% 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.
