Leading Swiss UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL , has announced it has strengthened its UK sales team with the addition of Stuart Cockburn as Sales Manager. Cockburn has more than 15 years’ experience in UPS field service engineering, technical customer support and sales and will now be responsible for supplying CENTIEL’s class leading UPS solutions throughout the Midlands and Wales area.
Mike Elms, Sales and Marketing Director, CENTIEL UK Ltd explains: “Stuart Cockburn’s extensive experience in the UPS marketplace makes him ideally placed to join our team of trusted advisors to our ever-growing client base across the UK. Stuart has an excellent technical understanding of UPS systems, particularly the modular concept and will be able to share his knowledge with clients to help them achieve an optimal power protection strategy through reliable, right-sized UPS solutions that match their critical load requirements but are also flexible to adapt to ever changing needs.”
Stuart Cockburn sales manager, CENTIEL UK Ltd confirms: “I am excited to join CENTIEL as a manufacturer at the very forefront of the industry. CENTIEL’s pioneering 4th generation modular UPS system: CumulusPower, with a single frame holding up to 600kW and parallel systems up to 3.6MW, is specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s ever changing customer requirements. It combines a unique Intelligent Module Technology (IMT), with a fault-tolerant parallel Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA) which offers industry-leading availability of 99.9999999% (nine, nines), with low total cost of ownership (TCO) through its Maximum Efficiency Management (MEM) and low losses of energy.
“For smaller installations, PremiumTower a three-phase standalone UPS designed for critical loads of between 10kW and 60kW and EssentialPower a single-phase UPS for critical loads of between 1Kva and 20kVA are also available. I am looking forward to helping clients evaluate the very best solution to meet the needs of their critical power protection now and in the future, as well as offering comprehensive maintenance and support contracts for total peace of mind.
“From my previous work experience I already know several members of the CENTIEL UK team including Mike Elms, Louis McGarry, sales manager and David Bond, chairman of CENTIEL UK Ltd, as well as many colleagues from the manufacturing team in Switzerland. I trust them and know we have worked well together in the past, so I am now focused on contributing to the further growth of CENTIEL by providing the industry’s leading UPS solutions to an expanding customer base.”
Leading Swiss Uninterruptible Power Supply manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has introduced a simple solution to allow either top or bottom cabling connection for its three-phase, modular UPS system, CumulusPowerTM. 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 CumulusPowerTM 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.”
CumulusPowerTM 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 ef?ciency 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.
January 2018: Swiss based UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has introduced its new PremiumTowerTM stand-alone UPS in the UK through its UK subsidiary, Centiel Ltd. The PremiumTowerTM is another high quality solution from the same R&D team that brought us CumulusPowerTM, CENTIEL’s class leading three-phase modular UPS system. PremiumTowerTM is a stand-alone version ideally suited to applications where minimising total cost of ownership is a significant factor.
“CumulusPowerTM is a scalable and flexible modular three-phase UPS system that combines class leading availability and efficiency that makes it perfect for use in small, medium and large datacenters,” explains Michael Brooks, managing director, CENTIEL Ltd. “However, not every application requires a modular UPS and for these applications the PremiumTowerTM is perfect. It has the same Swiss build quality and innovative technology seen in CumulusPowerTM but comes in a lower cost, stand alone cabinet.
“PremiumTowerTM is available in power ratings of 10kW to 60kW and the UPS cabinets can be paralleled to provide either additional power capacity or redundancy.” continues Brooks. “In addition, its on-line operating efficiency of 96.6% minimises running costs whilst its built-in battery reduces the footprint to ensure it can fit into even the smallest comms room.
“For more than ten years, we have been a trusted supplier of UPS, along with servicing and maintenance contracts, to our valued client base,” confirms Books. “We are delighted now to introduce PremiumTowerTM which expands our potential market and ensures the best power protection for even more business-critical applications”
