POWERVAR Announces Rack Mount Uninterruptible Power Manager

19-inch rack mount power supplies designed for managing AC power with surge diversion, noise filter, sine wave inverter

Waukegan, IL (June 1, 2007) -- POWERVAR, Inc. today announced that it has introduced a new family of 19" rack mount uninterruptible power supplies to its family of Uninterruptible Power Managers (UPMs). Most rack mount UPS products only provide protection from surges and simple power outages. POWERVAR's UPM also conditions AC power full-time thanks to an integrated design that incorporates a high energy surge diverter, a power line noise filter, a low impedance isolation transformer, and a low distortion sine wave inverter.

"It's rare to find a rack mount UPS that includes an isolation transformer," states Dennis Ver Mulm, POWERVAR's Vice President of Marketing. "That's because rack space is valuable, and it's tough to fit an isolation transformer into a space efficient enclosure. But we've succeeded." The company's new rackmount UPM requires only 3RU of vertical rack space.

The product is available in four sizes for both North American and international electrical systems -- 600 VA, 800 VA, 1100 VA, and 1440 VA. Two versions are also available. The first is a standard UPM with UL and cUL listings. A second version with UL60601 and IEC60601 listings for use in patient vicinity healthcare applications is also available. International models carry the CE mark.

In voluntary cooperation with NEMA, DOT, and FAA guidelines, POWERVAR manufactures its UPM products with battery disconnect plugs on the rear panel, which when removed, disable the internal battery and eliminate the possibility of short circuit and fire during transport in truck, ship, or aircraft. All POWERVAR products are in full compliance with the European Union's WEEE and RoHS directives.
