Make Space with the Borri B500 UPS

Borri has revealed its latest range of compact uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) claiming their products are one of the most efficient series available in the UK, providing users with 20 per cent more usable power, compared to other manufacturers.

The company adds that their tower based UPS range is able to achieve an impressively small footprint by eliminating the need for external battery cabinets, making it ideal for a wide range of industry applications where space is limited, in particular hospitals and IT environments.

“Incorporating Borri’s sophisticated on-line double conversion topology, the new B500 6 – 10 kVA and B500EVO 10kVA and 20kVA series are extremely low maintenance and have been designed as a genuine ‘easy parallel’ UPS solution, where up to four B500s can be connected in parallel as and when required. This added flexibility to enable further capacity or redundancy as and when required, makes the new B500 range a true future proof investment.

Even more affordable than its predecessor the B300, the B500 series combines high-tech design functionality and up to the minute technology with optimum security and UPS reliability to achieve the highest levels of protection of up to 96 percent.
High efficiency levels are further achieved at the rectifier stage, where the B500 has been designed to provide a unity power factor and Input Total Harmonic Distortion (THDi) at a maximum of five percent, eliminating the need to oversize input cables and switchgear and making the B500 UPS extremely generator friendly with increased efficiency.”

The B500, which can also be used as a frequency converter, comes with a internal charger allowing for reliable back-up times of up to eight hours with a six-hour recovery time.

Other key features include an upgraded LCD display, which allows users to easily and remotely manage the UPS, an integrated static and integral by-pass switch as standard, with zero transfer time between inverter and bypass, and built-in smart-slot for the option of programmable relay alarm cards, SNMP communication or RS485 MODBUS connection.

In addition, as standard the B500 has USB and RS232 serial communication for connection to a local server, a programmable dry relay contact, an EPO facility and a connection for interlocking with an external bypass switch. The product comes complete with a free download of user friendly monitoring and shut-down software suitable for the majority of operating systems.

The B500EVO UPS 10kVA and 20kVA offer even greater levels of flexibility and have been developed to allow for interchangeable three phase of single phase input to be applied to the UPS, allowing users to assess the electrical supply required should it need to be upgraded or balanced.

With only front access for battery replacement, the B500EVO can be positioned with other equipment adjacent, enabling users to get the most out of their available floor space.
