Eaton’s lithium-ion UPS provides secure, connected backup power in critical edge environments

Building on its leadership in delivering innovative capabilities in backup power solutions, global power management company, Eaton has launched the 9PX lithium-ion uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

The 9PX lithium-ion UPS provides longer battery life and a smaller footprint than valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery-powered UPS technology, making it ideal for distributed, “edge” environments and light industrial applications ranging from healthcare to education.

It’s longer battery life allows for a “set it and forget it” approach that requires little on-site support from IT, data center professionals or maintenance personnel.

“Digital transformation is reshaping work across industries and more companies now rely on distributed IT infrastructure to bring data closer to end users,” said Jaco du Plooy, Product Manager at Eaton South Africa.

“As this happens, the need for reliable backup power has never been more critical. Our 9PX lithium-ion UPS continues Eaton’s commitment to building lithium-ion capabilities into UPS solutions, enabling greater business continuity and always-on power in environments with limited on-site IT support.”

The 9PX lithium-ion UPS offers seamless integration for virtual-machine-centric management and disaster preparedness in the event of outages.

It has a life expectancy of eight to 10 years with increased reliability and a smaller footprint compared to VRLA-powered UPSes. Customers can purchase the UPS with Eaton’s Gigabit Network Card (Network-M2), enabling secure, connected capabilities and compatibility with Eaton’s remote monitoring service for real-time power monitoring and management.
